Coronavirus Ransomware

Coronavirus Ransomware

As the world is busy while trying to fight the Coronavirus (COVID-19), hackers are creating threats like Coronavirus Ransomware. This malicious application encrypts its victim’s files with a robust encryption algorithm and then displays a note saying that he has to pay to get decryption tools. Our researchers say that the malware could be spread through unreliable websites or messages. Thus, unlike the actual Coronavirus that spreads from person to person, Coronavirus Ransomware does not travel from one infected computer to another. If you want to learn more about it, we invite you to read our full article. Also, at the end of it, you can find out prepared deletion instructions that show how you could erase this malware manually. However, we should stress that it might be safer to leave this task to a legitimate antimalware tool. 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 »

SepSys Ransomware

SepSys Ransomware

You might be going about your business as normal and then SepSys Ransomware reveals itself and declares that all of your personal files were encrypted. This might shock you and make you go into panic, but if you are able to keep your head level, you might be able to get yourself out of this messy situation with ease. If you are prepared for malware attacks, perhaps you already have backup copies of personal photos, documents, and other types of files? If you do, all you really need to worry about is how you will delete SepSys Ransomware from your Windows operating system. And what if you do not have copies? If that is the case, you might be interested in learning whether or not you can take the gamble of paying a ransom that is requested by cybercriminals, according to who, the ransom can buy you a decryptor. Whether you are trying to remove the infection or restore your files, Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers are here to assist you. Read more »

Rxx Ransomware

Rxx Ransomware

Rxx Ransomware opens a window called back_data@foxmail.com as soon as it enciphers all targeted files. Our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com say that the malicious application might be after photos, various documents, and other data that could be precious and irreplaceable. The mentioned window should show a message that says you can restore all files if you contact the malware’s creators. Unfortunately, it is doubtful that they will not want anything in exchange for providing you with special decryption tools. In most cases, hackers ask to pay a particular sum of Bitcoins. Putting up with such demands is dangerous because there is always a possibility that hackers could scam you. If you want to learn more about what may happen if you receive Rxx Ransomware and how to avoid it, we advise reading our full article. Read more »

Anwapfile.club

Anwapfile.club

Pop-ups introduced to you via Anwapfile.club cannot be ignored. Interacting with them is NOT something you should do, but you also cannot ignore the fact that you have been exposed to them. That means that you must have visited unreliable websites or that adware exists on your operating system. If that is the case – although it is unlikely to be – a trusted malware scanner will inform you about it immediately.

If they are enabled on your browser, a legitimate malware scanner might identify them as adware helpers.

NCOV Ransomware

NCOV Ransomware

You have to act fast if you have discovered NCOV Ransomware on your Windows operating system. You might be unable to salvage your personal files – which the threat encrypts – but your operating system will not be safe until this malware is fully removed. Just like Dewar Ransomware, Devos Ransomware, Dever Ransomware, and hundreds of clones alike, this threat was created by an unknown attacker (or group of attackers) who used a pre-built malware code. The first infections that were created using it were Crysis Ransomware and Dharma Ransomware, which is why these are the names that the NCOV variant might be recognized by malware scanners and security tools. Regardless of the name, if this is the threat that slithered in, you need to get rid of it as soon as possible. Do you know how to delete NCOV Ransomware? Do you know if you can salvage your files?

STOP Ransomware (.peet variation)

STOP Ransomware (.peet variation)

STOP Ransomware (.peet variation), or Peet Ransomware, is a dangerous infection. Although it does not steal private information, drop other malicious files, or hijack your personal accounts, it corrupts your personal files. Documents, pictures, archives, and media files are encrypted, and the data within is changed, which renders the files unreadable. This is the first task that the infection needs to complete. Afterward, it has to convince you to pay money in return for a decryptor. The attack of this malware is very simple in its structure, but, unfortunately, it can be very successful and lucrative. If victims of the infection cannot recover their files for free, they might decide to fulfill the attackers’ demands, and Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers think that that would be a mistake. If you are not sure about what it is that you should do with the infection, its removal, and the recovery of your files, continue reading.
