Skymap Ransomware

Skymap Ransomware

Skymap Ransomware is a dangerous computer infection that should be terminated as soon as possible. As you can obviously tell from the name, this program encrypts target files and then expects the affected user to pay a ransom fee for the files. Computer security experts always emphasize that transferring the ransom payment seldom solves anything. If anything, you need to remove Skymap Ransomware, and then look for other methods to restore the affected files. Please do not fall into this trap, and keep your money to yourself. Also, do everything you can to avoid similar infections in the future. Read more »

TitanCryptor Ransomware

TitanCryptor Ransomware

TitanCryptor Ransomware is the kind of malware that can destroy your personal files. Even though it only encrypts them – which, in theory, means that you should be able to decrypt them – recovering them has not been possible yet. Even though free decryptors do not exist, and restoring files manually is not possible, victims might be tricked into paying money for the decryptor allegedly created by the attackers. Can you trust them? Anti-Spyware-101.com research team does not recommend it. Even though cyber criminals might respond to you once you contact them first, it is unlikely that you would hear from them again after paying the ransom. Keep your money to yourself and, instead, figure out how to delete TitanCryptor Ransomware from your operating system. If you need help, you will find useful removal information in this article. If you continue reading, you will also learn how this malware spreads and, in turn, how to protect your Windows operating system against it in the future. Read more »

Blitzkrieg Ransomware

Blitzkrieg Ransomware

Blitzkrieg Ransomware is an infection that encrypts files and then adds either “.bkc” or “.non” extension to their original names to mark them. When you see either of these extensions, you no longer need to try to open the file to see whether or not it is corrupted. Unfortunately, our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team warns that checking the files and assessing the situation might be impossible. That is because the malicious threat practically goes after all files. Needless to say, if system files are encrypted, you might be unable to run your operating system normally. If that has happened, you might need to reinstall Windows. Otherwise, you could leave the infected machine in the hands of a professional. In any case, even if your computer is running normally, if files were encrypted, it is unlikely that you will be able to set them free. That will not happen even when you remove Blitzkrieg Ransomware. Obviously, deleting this threat is important, and we discuss that too. Read more »

Delphi Ransomware

Delphi Ransomware

Do you know what happens to the files corrupted by Delphi Ransomware? They are encrypted, which means that they can be read only using a special decoder. Although you might be happy to learn that your files are not lost completely, we have bad news: Cyber criminals are the only ones who can give you the tool to restore personal files. So, what is the problem? The problem is that these cyber criminals are unlikely to help you out. They might promise you to decrypt files as soon as you contact them and then pay the ransom, but if you think that the words of attackers can be trusted, you are wrong. While we cannot guarantee that you would not get anything in return for the ransom – after all, cyber criminals are people, and so they are unpredictable – it would be surprising to learn about files being decrypted successfully. If you cannot do anything about your files, you still can delete Delphi Ransomware, and we recommend initiating the removal of this malware ASAP. Read more »
