Hets Ransomware

Hets Ransomware

You might think that your operating system is an impenetrable fortress, but Hets Ransomware will prove you wrong if you give this malware a single opportunity to do so. Security loopholes within spam emails, bundled downloaders, social engineering scams, and RDP backdoors can be used by cybercriminals to drop pretty much anything onto an unguarded operating system. If it is guarded appropriately, the launcher of the threat is removed instantly. If it is not guarded, the ransomware proceeds to hook its claws into your system and silently encrypt all found personal files. Documents, videos, and photos are amongst the files that the ransomware corrupts, and these are the kinds of files that most Windows users are desperate not to lose. Unfortunately, once your files are encrypted, even deleting Hets Ransomware will not save them. So what are you supposed to do? Should you obey the attackers and pay the ransom they demand?

gamenaps.com

gamenaps.com

Do not accept the notifications from gamenaps.com because that will allow the website to flood you with ads. Even if you do not enable notifications, ads are shown, but if you enable them, you might be giving it the permission to track you and expose you to more personalized content. Anti-malware tools recognize such behavior as adware assistance, which is why the enabled notifications are identified as adware helpers. Of course, not all notifications are unreliable, and some of the most popular websites offer this feature as well. That being said, this does not mean that you should enable notifications whenever you are offered this option. In fact, you should automatically disable them, unless you want to spend your time learning about what the enablement would entail. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team recommends deleting gamenaps.com notifications for several reasons, and if you want to learn more about the removal process, you should continue reading.

CONTI Ransomware

CONTI Ransomware

CONTI Ransomware shows a message saying that a victim’s system is locked, but, in reality, the malware locks particular files. To be more precise, the malicious application enciphers data, which is why it becomes impossible to open it without a unique decryption key and a decryption tool. The threat’s developers may offer to sell such decryption tools if you contact them via the email addresses that should be provided on the malware’s ransom notes. However, you should know that whatever cybercriminals may offer you, you cannot be sure that they will deliver it. In other words, if you pay a ransom, your money could be lost in vain, as you may never get the needed decryption tools. Therefore, we advise thinking carefully before you decide how to react to the malicious application’s note. If you want to get to know the threat better, you should read the rest of this article. Also, if you choose to delete CONTI Ransomware, you might want to have a look at the removal instructions available below. Read more »

Centerplaceofupgrade.pro

Centerplaceofupgrade.pro

Do not trust messages introduced to you via https://soft4update.Centerplaceofupgrade.pro because they are misleading and fictitious.

Hopefully, you have not been tricked by the scam yet, and you still have time to protect yourself. However, if you have downloaded software represented via it, you need to act quickly.

Hopefully, no threats are found, and you can soon forget about the scam after adjusting your own behavior online.

Kodc Ransomware

Kodc Ransomware

Kodc Ransomware is a threat to your personal files, such as documents and photos, and if you want to keep them safe, you need to keep the threat away. Unfortunately, more and more file-encrypting threats emerge every single day, and it is no longer enough to implement legitimate security software. People often skip or postpone updates, and that leaves their systems exposed to new invaders. This is why all Windows users need to be proactive about how they protect their files as well. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers recommend setting up a reliable cloud storage system or using external hard drives to protect copies of all personal files. As long as the backups are separated from the original files, they should be safe. What about internal backups? We do not recommend using those because cybercriminals have learned ways to delete them. Hopefully, copies of your personal files are safe, and you can use them to replace the corrupted files after removing Kodc Ransomware. Read more »

HackdoorCrypt3r Ransomware

HackdoorCrypt3r Ransomware

If the thought of losing your personal files makes you sweat profusely, HackdoorCrypt3r Ransomware is an infection you want to learn more about. Just like hundreds and thousands of other file-encrypting ransom-demanding threats, this one is all about making your personal files unreadable. Unfortunately, a complex, unique encryptor is used by this threat, which is why you cannot decrypt your files using any kind of decryption software. Are you looking for free decryptors? If you find one that claims to decrypt the files with the “.hackdoor” extension appended to their names, you want to be very careful. At the time of research, Anti-Spyware-101.com could not find free decryptors that worked. What does that leave you with? Unfortunately, your only option might seem to pay a ransom that is requested by the attackers. The thing is that this is not a real option because cybercriminals are unlikely to give you anything in return for your money. Hopefully, even if you cannot decrypt files, you can still replace them, but only after you delete HackdoorCrypt3r Ransomware. Read more »

OnyxLocker Ransomware

OnyxLocker Ransomware

When files are encrypted by OnyxLocker Ransomware, they cannot be read because there is no program that could decipher the encryptor used. The process of encryption is very simple because people can use it to protect their files; however, cybercriminals have decided to encrypt files to make money, and they have been very successful at it. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have faced an uncountable number of file-encryptors, and a few of the more recent ones include Devos Ransomware, 2048 Ransomware, and Pashka Ransomware. Some are more complex than others, and some of the threats are capable of stealing passwords, wiping data, deleting shadow copies, and doing other terrible things. Most often, however, cybercriminals stick to encryption alone because that is enough to back Windows users into a corner. If you too feel backed into a corner, you might be thinking about the option of paying the ransom, but our researchers recommend that you focus on deleting OnyxLocker Ransomware instead. Read more »

Devos Ransomware

Devos Ransomware

Devos Ransomware is one of those malicious applications that take various personal files as hostages and then show a ransom note. In this case, the malware’s note does not give instructions on how to pay a ransom to decrypt the threat’s locked files. Instead, users are asked to email the hackers behind the malware. We believe that as soon as these cybercriminals are contacted, they ought to demand a specific amount of cryptocurrencies and explain how to make a payment. Needless to say, putting your faith in such people could end up hazardously, which is why we advise not to rush into anything if you come across such a malicious application. If you want to know how to delete Devos Ransomware as well as more about how it works, we invite you to read our full report. Read more »
