COPAN Ransomware

COPAN Ransomware might look like an entirely new computer infection, but the truth is that it is merely a newer version of the notorious Dharma Ransomware program.

ChineseRarypt Ransomware

ChineseRarypt Ransomware

ChineseRarypt Ransomware is a malicious application that places files in an archive and encrypts it. Later on, the malware ought to drop a ransom note claiming only the threat’s creators can restore affected files and that victims who encounter it would have to pay for it. As always, we advise considering this demand carefully as you cannot know if the hackers will help you restore your files even if they promise to. In short, your money might be lost in vain, and if you do not wish to risk it, we encourage you to ignore the malware’s ransom note and restore data from backup copies that you could keep on cloud storage or elsewhere. Of course, it might be unsafe to do anything with an infected computer while the malicious application is still on it. To erase it, you should follow the instructions provided below or get a legitimate antimalware tool that would remove ChineseRarypt Ransomware for you. Read more »

Dqb Ransomware

Dqb Ransomware encrypts and marks user’s files with the .dqb extension. Afterward, the malicious application should display a ransom note explaining how to restore affected data. In truth, the note only tells how to contact the malware’s developers. However, based on our experience with such threats, we are almost one hundred percent sure that the reply letter from hackers should provide further instructions. Usually, they ask to pay a ransom and promise to deliver decryption tools in return. Cybercriminals often claim they can guarantee victims will receive what is promised, but you should know that in reality, such promises have no value. Victims might be asked to pay with Bitcoins, and once they do, they cannot take their money back. Therefore, the malware’s developers might get their payment whether they provide decryption tools or not. If you rather not risk losing your money for nothing, you could pay no attention to the ransom note and erase Dqb Ransomware. Read more »

WSH RAT

WSH RAT is a clandestine remote access tool that, in the hands of malicious cyber criminals, can become a seriously dangerous weapon. The infection appears to have been unleashed at the beginning of June, and it is currently actively sold on underground forums, where schemers, hackers, and virtual attackers reign. At the time of research, Anti-Spyware-101.com analysts found the threat to be sold for a mere $50 per month. That is not a lot of money under any circumstances, and, undoubtedly, attackers are exploiting the opportunity to use a seemingly well-established RAT. Unfortunately, the scale of this malware is yet to be determined, but, without a doubt, everyone needs to take appropriate security measures to ensure that operating systems are guarded against it. Detecting this malware once it is in might be very difficult, and some victims might discover it by chance. In any case, deleting this malware is crucial, and you will find useful WSH RAT removal tips in this report. Read more »

BURAN Ransomware

BURAN Ransomware

You do NOT want to let in BURAN Ransomware because this devious file-encryptor can destroy all of your personal files. In fact, it is set to destroy every single file that is not a .buran, .cmd, .com, .cpl, .dll, .exe, .log, .msp, .msc, .pif, .scr, or .sys file. Although the infection does not remove or steal files, it encrypts them, which means that the data is scrambled and so the files become unreadable. In theory, a decryptor should exist along with the encryptor, but even if the developer of the infection has it, who can say whether or not they would hand it to the victims. That being said, that is exactly what the attackers are promising, and they are demanding money in return. One version of the infection demanded a ransom of $100 to be paid in Bitcoin, but there are many different versions, and so the sum of the ransom could change as well. What does not change is the fact that this infection must be erased. Do you know how to delete BURAN Ransomware? Continue reading to find out. Read more »

Php Ransomware

Php Ransomware could cause a lot of trouble to those who receive it as the malicious application was programmed to encipher user data with a secure encryption algorithm. Because of this, files locked by the malware cannot be launched. Of course, it is likely the hackers behind this threat may offer decryption tools, but we have no doubt they would ask to pay a ransom in return. The problem with such deals is that there are no reassurances the cybercriminals will hold on to their end of the agreement. It means it is possible you could end up wasting your money for nothing, and if it is not something you want to risk experiencing, we advise removing Php Ransomware from your system. To get rid of it manually, users could follow the deletion steps available below. On the other hand, if the process looks complicated, it might be easier to employ a legitimate antimalware tool.

Plurox

In this text, we discuss a malicious application called Plurox that falls under the category of backdoor. The research shows it may allow attackers not only to gain access to a victim’s computer but also to its network and other devices on it. However, our researchers say the malware looks for systems vulnerable to a particular exploit that was first misused a couple of years ago. Since this weakness has been patched already, we do not think a lot of computers could be still vulnerable to such attacks.

As for step by step removal instructions, we offer the instructions placed at the end of this page. Read more »
