Ooss Ransomware

Ooss Ransomware

If your operating system is protected, Ooss Ransomware should not be able to sneak in. However, if you do not use protection tools, and if you are relying on your own ability to identify and remove malware before it is executed, it is unlikely that you will stand a chance of stopping this threat before it encrypts your personal files. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that this malware uses very sneaky ways to invade your operating system, and you are always involved in the process. For example, the infection’s launcher could be introduced via a bundled downloader as a helpful application. If you are tricked into executing this bundle, the ransomware slithers in immediately. In a different scenario, the launcher could be introduced via spam email as a document/PDF file that, allegedly, represents flight information, hotel reservation, postage delivery details, etc. If you open this file, the ransomware executes. After that, the only thing you can do is delete Ooss Ransomware. Read more »

Righ Ransomware

Righ Ransomware

Righ Ransomware is a tremendously clandestine infection that bets on people to be careless with spam emails and bundled downloaders. If you interact with spam email attachments and unreliable downloaders carelessly, you could let the infection in before you know what is going on. The launcher of this malware can be concealed in a clever manner, and you could be tricked into executing it yourself. Once the file is planted, it can do some serious damage. The main task for this malware is to encrypt your personal files, and it can do that successfully using a unique encryption key. A matching decryption key should exist, but you are unlikely to get your hands on it, which is why this kind of malware is so dangerous. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has analyzed the malicious infection, and our recommendation is that you delete it as soon as possible. Shouldn’t you figure out what to do about the encrypted files first? Well, we hope that you will be able to restore them after you remove Righ Ransomware. Read more »

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware leaves an extension called .remk on the files that it encrypts, which is where its title comes from. The malware encrypts files with a secure encryption algorithm. Meaning, files affected by it cannot be restored unless you have a unique decryption key and a decryptor. While the malware’s developers seem to have such tools, they are willing to share them only with victims who pay ransom. The worst part is that even if you pay the sum they ask and on time, you cannot still be certain that the hackers will hold on to their end of the deal. Therefore, dealing with the malicious application’s creators could make matters even worse if you end up losing your money as well. To learn more about the malware, we recommend reading the rest of this article. Also, since our specialists advise deleting Remk Ransomware, we encourage you to check our removal instructions placed at the end of this page. Read more »

Blend Ransomware

Blend Ransomware

Failure to protect the Windows operating system can result in the invasion of Blend Ransomware, a file-encrypting and ransom-demanding infection that will not leave one personal file untouched. In the first phase of the attack, the infection executes itself and drops additional files. Then, it encrypts personal files. Finally, it introduces ransom demands in return for a decryptor that, allegedly, is the only savior. That could be the case, but that does not mean that cybercriminals would actually help you with the decryption of personal documents or photos even if you fulfilled their demands to a T. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers note that victims who have backups outside the system can easily replace the corrupted files after deleting Blend Ransomware. Hopefully, that is the option that works for you. Of course, whether or not you restore your personal files, removing the malicious threat is crucial. Continue reading to learn about the process, and note that a manual removal guide can be found below. Read more »

Rezm Ransomware

Rezm Ransomware

Rezm Ransomware can prevent you from accessing your documents, photos, and data alike. As you see, the malware encrypts such files with a robust encryption algorithm. The files that get affected can only be recovered with particular decryption software. As usual for threats from the Stop Ransomware family, its ransom note claims that users can get decryption tools if they pay 980 US dollars or half of it if they put up with specific demands. Unfortunately, whether you pay or not, there are no reassurances that cybercriminals will send you the decryption tools that they promise. Naturally we advise concentrating on the malware’s deletion if you do not want to pay ransom. The instructions below show how you could erase Rezm Ransomware manually, although if the process seems too challenging, we recommend using a legitimate antimalware tool instead. For more information, we invite you to read the rest of this article. Read more »
