Mimicry Ransomware

Mimicry Ransomware might not look like much of a dangerous threat until it unleashes its malicious spell upon your computer. Perhaps you can already tell from its name that this program has something to do with a ransom.

The point is that this infection holds your files “hostage” until you supposedly transfer the ransom fee. However, we would like to point out that paying the ransom does not guarantee this program would “release” your files. Hence, you should focus on removing Mimicry Ransomware from your system, and the idea of paying the ransom should not even cross your mind. Read more »

Golden Ransomware

Golden Ransomware

Golden Ransomware is not a threat that works fully, but it does not mean that you are safe – crooks might soon release its final update and then it will lock your personal files without mercy. At the time of analysis, the infection was still in the development phase and thus did not lock a single file on our testing machine, but we cannot guarantee that you will be that lucky if you encounter its new version. Even if you encounter the same version analyzed by researchers at anti-spyware-101.com, it will still cause you trouble because it will execute a command shutdown -a to make sure it cannot be closed or killed by the user. In other words, it is a persistent infection that does all what it can to make sure it does not get removed. It does not mean that it cannot be erased. We cannot promise that it will be easy to eliminate it, but you could still delete it from the system yourself manually after you boot into Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking. We want to emphasize that you have to choose Safe Mode with Networking if you plan to download an automated malware remover and delete Golden Ransomware automatically. Read more »

Jeff Ransomware

Jeff Ransomware

After taking a closer look at Jeff Ransomware, our researchers concluded it is probably still being developed. Therefore, we doubt the malware could be spread among a lot of users.

In the article, we will explain why we believe it not yet finished and talk about its working manner. Moreover, users who are interested in how it could be erased will find instructions showing how to do so manually. Of course, if you encounter an updated version of Jeff Ransomware, it might act differently, and the provided deletion guide may not help you remove it completely. For this reason, it might be best to use a legitimate antimalware tool that could take care of the malicious program with no trouble. Read more »

My Daily Verse XP

If you study the Bible daily, extensions like My Daily Verse XP might catch your eye. At the moment, this suspicious add-on does not have an official download page, but it is known that it used to be offered at mydailyversexp.com/DailyBible and chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/my-daily-bible-verse-xp/poamjgfcppmnpeoihkdpbfpjjbiflpib. The official download website and the Chrome web store page has been taken down, and now the potentially unwanted program is believed to spread via third-party installers. They can deliver software bundles that carry both harmless and malicious infections. While we advise deleting My Daily Verse XP, we cannot make any claims about this extension being extremely malicious. Unfortunately, the programs this PUP could come packaged with could be very malicious, and they might require immediate removal. Due to this, we suggest scanning your operating system before you move on. If critical threats are uncovered, you need to get rid of them as soon as possible. Afterward, you can address the suspicious application and the search tool that comes along with it. Read more »

DBGer Ransomware

DBGer Ransomware

DBGer Ransomware is a malicious program that may attack computers vulnerable to the so-called EternalBlue exploit. If the malware succeeds and settles in it should encipher user’s photos, documents, and other personal files with a secure encryption algorithm. As a result, the device should be unable to recognize modified files. Meaning, the only way to access them is decrypting them. Sadly, the only ones capable of deciphering data encrypted by DBGer Ransomware is the hackers who created it, and they ask for around six thousand US dollars for such services. Naturally, if you do not have so much money to spare, or do not want to risk being scammed; we would advise ignoring the malware’s displayed ransom note. For more information about the threat and the ways it can be erased, you should read our full article. Read more »

Wannacryv2 Ransomware

Wannacryv2 Ransomware

Wannacryv2 Ransomware is considered to be a copycat of WannaCry Ransomware; however, research conducted by specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com has clearly shown that this malicious application differs from the original threat completely. The only thing that unites them is the fact that they both lock files. Surprisingly, Wannacryv2 Ransomware does not drop a ransom note, and, on top of that, it is impossible to contact its author in order to purchase the decryption tool, which suggests that the ransomware infection is still in development, or it is just a test. Consider yourself lucky – we have a code that can unlock your files. You will have to enter it in the box the program (wanna cry v2 decryptor.exe) this ransomware drops on affected computers contains. You can find the unlock code indicated in our removal guide (you will find it below this article), but do not forget that you still need to eliminate the ransomware infection from your computer yourself – it will not be erased from your system automatically once files are unlocked.

Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware

Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware

It is very likely that you have let Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware into your Windows operating system yourself, and you might have done that by opening corrupted links or spam email attachments. Our research team at Anti-Spyware-101.com also suggests that unprotected RDP channels could be used to spread the malicious infection silently. If the threat infiltrates the operating system silently, you are unlikely to realize that you need to remove anything malicious. Needless to say, if you do not take care of that, the threat starts performing malicious processes, and the most important one is to encrypt files. The infection uses an algorithm to encrypt files and make the data unreadable. If the files are corrupted successfully, you cannot restore them, unless backups exist outside the infected operating system. Even if you delete Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware successfully, your files would not be restored automatically. Therefore, if you still have the chance, you need to protect your system and files against this malware. If you are already dealing with it, you need to get rid of it ASAP. Read more »

FoxRansom Ransomware

FoxRansom Ransomware

FoxRansom Ransomware is a threat our specialists have discovered only recently. It might make your files inaccessible even though it did not lock personal data at the time of research, they say. This might happen if the ransomware infection is ever updated. You cannot keep malware active on your system no matter which version of it you encounter because the presence of bad software might result in the entrance of other threats and other privacy and security-related problems. Therefore, you must erase FoxRansom Ransomware from your system immediately after having discovered it active on your computer. It seems that this threat is still in development, specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say. As mentioned, it did not encrypt files at the time of analysis.
