C0hen Locker Ransomware

C0hen Locker Ransomware

C0hen Locker Ransomware locks not your computer, but some of the files located on it. To be more precise, the malicious application encrypts files, and, as a result, they become unreadable as victims cannot open them. There is a way to restore such data, but it requires having a decryptor and a unique decryption key. Sadly, only the malware’s developers may have these means that could restore files, and they demand a ransom in exchange for them.

Also, we advise deleting C0hen Locker Ransomware as quickly as you can because if it stays, it might relaunch after you restart your computer and encrypt files that you may yet create or obtain.

BIOLOAD

Can you name an infection that impersonates a legitimate Microsoft .DLL file to carry out malicious actions? BIOLOAD is an infection that is capable of doing just that. This malware sneakily plants its own binary along with an authentic binary, and then it uses it to drop malware.

Could regular Windows users be affected? Perhaps, the attackers employing it could change tactics. Ultimately, when it comes to malware and cybercriminals, unpredictability is the only predictable thing, and so we would not reject the possibility that pretty much anyone could face the threat.
