Cheetah Ransomware

Cheetah Ransomware

The smallest security backdoor could help the malicious Cheetah Ransomware slither into your operating system, which is why it is crucial that you do not open these backdoors. First and foremost, you want to make sure that your operating system is secured reliably, and we recommend employing anti-malware software to ensure that. Next, you want to make sure that all security updates are installed. These updates might include patches for existing vulnerabilities, and you do NOT want to skip those. Finally, you have to evaluate your own activity. Do you open random links, download files without knowing much about them, or visit websites that you are not familiar with? If you do, your chances of letting in malware are pretty high. Hopefully, you think about this once you remove Cheetah Ransomware from your operating system. This is not the only threat in the world, and it is not even the worst kind. If you do not want to face threats and have to delete them in the future, you must be cautious. Read more »

The devious Critical Warning 888-412-7389 scam is targeted at Windows users with vulnerable operating systems.

ABANTES Ransomware

ABANTES Ransomware

ABANTES Ransomware is based on an open-source threat known as Hidden-Tear Ransomware. Unlike most of the other file-encrypting applications created with Hidden-Tear Ransomware’s code, the malware does not demand a ransom. It looks as if the hackers created the threat for no other reason except to damage the infected computer’s system and the victim’s private files. Afterward, the malware may show an annoying message that tells victims not to kill any processes, delete the malware, or use antimalware tools. The note claims that if the user does not stick with the rules, his computer “will die.” However, it might not matter if you keep with the malware’s rules or not. If the threat rewrites the computer’s MBR (Master Boot Record), you might be forced to reinstall Windows. Otherwise, you might be able to get rid of it with a reputable antimalware tool or the deletion instructions placed below. Read more »

Kiratos Ransomware

Kiratos Ransomware

Kiratos Ransomware is a threat that appends the .kiratos extension to the files it encrypts. It does not target system data, which means the computer should run more or less the same as always except the user might be unable to open files that have the mentioned extension. Next to locked data, victims should also notice text documents (_readme.txt) with instructions on what to do to decrypt the affected files. To be more precise, the hackers should ask to contact and pay them 490 or 980 US dollars. Needless to say, putting up with such demands could be extremely risky, and if you do not wish to do so, you should ignore ransom notes. Since the malware can restart with the operating system and possibly encrypt new data, we advise removing Kiratos Ransomware from the device. To eliminate it manually, you should complete the steps located below. For more information on it, we invite you to read the rest of this report. Read more »

Guvara Ransomware

Guvara Ransomware

You cannot be careless when opening spam emails because Guvara Ransomware and many other threats could hide within them. Cyber criminals are smart, and they know what kinds of subject lines and messages can lure in more gullible people. If they allow the malicious threat in, it can start corrupting files almost immediately. Unfortunately, if the victim does not realize that malware has invaded and delete the launcher right there and then, they are unlikely to stop the attack in time. After files are encrypted, the infection reveals itself using an added extension (“.guvara”), as well as a text file, which we discuss further in the report. Unfortunately, the recovery of files is unlikely to be possible, and you cannot save them even by deleting Guvara Ransomware. Obviously, it is necessary to remove this malware anyway, and we recommend taking care of that as soon as possible. Read more »

Pig4444 Ransomware

Pig4444 Ransomware

Pig4444 Ransomware is a vicious threat that encrypts all data on the victim’s device and then drops a ransom note asking to pay for its decryption.

Consequently, we are not sure whether the malicious application was created to ruin someone’s system on purpose or if the hackers made a mistake. If you are interested in learning more about Pig4444 Ransomware, you should read the rest of this article. Also, if you have other questions about it, keep in mind there is a comments section below the text where you can leave us a message. Read more »

cyberwars@qq.com Ransomware

cyberwars@qq.com Ransomware

You do not need to be an experienced Windows user to uncover cyberwars@qq.com Ransomware because this infection is supposed to reveal itself. As soon as it is done encrypting files, it launches a window with its name as the title, and it also marks the corrupted files with a unique extension that contains the victim’s ID (“.id-[8-character ID].[cyberwars@qq.com].war”). The window that is launched contains a message, and although the attackers behind the infection state that files were encrypted “due to a security problem,” it should be pretty obvious that files were encrypted by cyber criminals. What is the reason behind that? How can you restore your personal files? How are you supposed to remove cyberwars@qq.com Ransomware from your Windows operating system? Finally, how can you protect the system against this kind of malware in the future? These are the questions that our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has already answered in this report.
