Sad Computer Ransomware

Sad Computer Ransomware

Surely, you do not want to face Sad Computer Ransomware, but you might if you are not careful. This infection could exploit system vulnerabilities exposed due to skipped updates to enter the system. It also could trick you into executing the infection via spam emails or malicious installers. Regardless of how the infection spreads, if it gets in, it encrypts files immediately. Your childhood photos, work documents, home videos, and other kinds of files could be affected by this threat without you even knowing it. After they are encrypted, the “.sad” extension is added to their names, and they can no longer be opened and read normally. That is because the data of the files is jumbled by an encryptor. To read the files, a decryptor is required. So, how can you get it? At the time of research, that was simply not possible. What about the ransom? Even if you believe that that is your only option, do not give in. Instead of wasting your money, learn how to delete Sad Computer Ransomware. Read more »

Admin@decryption.biz Ransomware

Admin@decryption.biz Ransomware

It shouldn’t be hard for you to figure out that Admin@decryption.biz Ransomware has invaded your operating system because when this malware attacks, it attaches the “.id-[ID].[Admin@decryption.biz].bkpx” extension to the corrupted files.

Search.hcrimereport.co

Search.hcrimereport.co

If you face Search.hcrimereport.co when you open your web browser or the New Tab page, it is likely that an extension called “Crime Report” has been installed as well. This browser hijacker is unlikely to spread on its own, and it should always come bundled with an extension or an application. This depends on the web browser you use because you install extensions on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, but you actually install applications if you operate via Internet Explorer. The search tool was created by Eightpoint Technologies Ltd SEZC, which, according to the Privacy Policy, is an affiliate of Polarity Technologies Ltd. We can link a bunch of hijackers and potentially unwanted programs (for example, QuickMapsAndDirections) to these companies, and they certainly do not have a good reputation because of it. We recommend removing Search.hcrimereport.co and Crime Report because they are unreliable, and if you want more information about this, you should continue reading. If you want to ask us questions before you delete the hijacker, use the comments section below the article. Read more »

Ghost Ransomware

Ghost Ransomware

Ghost Ransomware enciphers victim’s files, appends the .ghost extension to them, and then opens a window with a ransom note in which the hackers “apologize for the inconvenience.” Losing your precious files or important documents could be an inconvenience indeed. Not to mention, the cybercriminals ask to pay a ransom of 0.08116 BTC, which currently is around 422 US dollars. It is not a particularly small sum, and as you probably realize it yourself, there are no guarantees you will receive decryption tools the hackers promise even if you pay what they ask for in time. Therefore, it seems to us the safer choice would be to erase Ghost Ransomware with the instructions placed at the end of the text or a legitimate antimalware tool.
