Nesa Ransomware

Nesa Ransomware

If you do not want to face malware, you need to secure your Windows operating system. If you do not take care of it, Nesa Ransomware is one of the threats you could face and, arguably, it is one of the worst infections you could face. That is because its main function is to encrypt your files, after which, you will not be able to read any of them. Which files are encrypted depends on what kinds of files they are and where they are stored. Unfortunately, the threat is likely to corrupt documents, pictures, and all other files that you consider to be personal and irreplaceable. Perhaps you have backups of your personal files? If they are stored outside of the infected machine (e.g., cloud storage), you should have no trouble replacing the corrupted files, but you should delete Nesa Ransomware and secure your operating system before you take care of that. If you need help with the removal and the protection, we’ve got you covered. Read more »

Meds Ransomware

Meds Ransomware

Meds Ransomware belongs to Stop Ransomware family as it is almost identical to the mentioned threat. It encrypts pictures, photos, and other personal files of the victim. Then it should suggest purchasing decryption tools from the malware’s developers. Same as many malicious applications from the Stop Ransomware family, Meds Ransomware asks to pay $490 in 72 hours or $980 if the given time runs out. Needless to say, we do not recommend rushing into it. There is a possibility you could get scammed, which means you should first consider if you are prepared to lose the mentioned sum should anything go wrong. If you are not, we advise not to pay the ransom. Also, we believe users should erase Meds Ransomware since it can restart with Windows, which means there is a chance it could encipher new data after each system restart. To prevent this, you could erase the threat with the instructions located below or with a chosen antimalware tool. Read more »

PyLock Ransomware

PyLock Ransomware

When PyLock Ransomware encrypts your personal files, the “.locked” extension is added to their names to make sure that you can identify the corrupted ones right away. The attackers behind the malicious threat do not want to hide what they have done because they hope that the damage is big enough to convince you that you need their help. Nearly 200 different types of files can be corrupted by this malicious infection, and that includes images, documents, videos, and other files that you might have no way of replacing. The threat does not corrupt system files because it needs the system to run smoothly so that the attackers could make their demands clear and that the victims would understand what is expected of them. If the system was crashing, the victims would not be able to do what the attackers want. Unfortunately, if your files cannot be replaced, you might be willing to obey the demands of these attackers. That is a bad decision, and we recommend focusing on the removal of the threat. Do you know how to delete PyLock Ransomware? Read more »

Predator the Thief

Windows users need to be extremely careful about protecting their systems against Predator the Thief, a clandestine info-stealer that is capable of recording all kinds of private and sensitive data without any notice.
