Luckily, this is not an irreversible situation. You can remove 2solo.biz notifications, and we have even created a guide that shows how to do that on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. Without a doubt, you also need to think about your own virtual behavior. Why were you introduced to the notifications request?

WCH Ransomware

WCH Ransomware

WCH Ransomware, also known as WeCanHelp Ransomware, is a malicious infection that has your personal files on the target.

Well, you should know better than to trust promises made by cybercriminals. Of course, if you are sure that you want to communicate with them and, perhaps, pay a ransom afterward, you should at least learn about the risks you are likely to face. In any case, whatever the outcome is, you need to delete WCH Ransomware from your operating system, and we hope that the removal tips shared in this report will help you.

MonitorMinor Infringes on the Security of Android Users

Not too long ago, MonitorMinor could be downloaded from monitorminor.com. At the moment, when you visit the website, it claims to be under construction. Quite possibly, the developer of the tool has paid attention to the findings of cybersecurity researchers, who have discovered that this particular tool can be used to spy on Android users in a particularly aggressive manner. Originally, this app is promoted as a security tool that can help parents control the content that their children can access and interact with. Of course, users do not need to provide proof that they are parents or that they would use MonitorMinor to spy on their children. Unfortunately, virtually anyone could use this tool. That includes suspicious employers, jealous lovers and exes, crazy roommates, mischievous siblings, and so on. In the worst-case scenario, this app could be exploited by criminals, who have no regard for victims’ personal security and privacy. Read more »

Hesterinoc.info

Hesterinoc.info

Are you careful when you visit new, unfamiliar websites? If you are, you should be alarmed by Hesterinoc.info when you are redirected to it randomly. Of course, you are unlikely to be redirected to it from a legitimate, harmless, trustworthy website. Instead, you are likely to be redirected to it from, for example, an illegal streaming website that offers TV series, movies, or even live streams for free. If you are willing to visit such websites, perhaps you are willing to deal with unfamiliar websites as well because free streaming websites, for example, mainly earn money via advertising. Of course, companies that care about their reputation would never use such an unreliable advertising platform. However, unreliable advertisers might. Unfortunately, some people might be tricked into enabling notifications too. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers suggest that you delete Hesterinoc.info notifications right away because they could put you at risk! If you are interested in the removal process, keep reading.

Qewe Ransomware

Qewe Ransomware

Qewe Ransomware is a file-encryptor, and it is not one of those infections that was built to destroy your operating system. In fact, it avoids all system files because it needs your operating system to run orderly; otherwise, it would not be able to make the ransom demand. Instead, this malware only encrypts personal files, and that means that photos, documents, music files, and other pieces of data cannot be read anymore. File encryption is usually employed to secure files, but cybercriminals are using it to make it impossible for their owners to read them. This is done so that the attackers could sell you their own decryptor. Fortunately, a free decryptor (STOP Decryptor) was created by researchers, and you might be able to restore at least some of the files using it. Should you invest in the decryptor offered by the attackers? You should not because, according to the team at Anti-Spyware-101.com, that would be a waste of money. Unfortunately, even if you remove Qewe Ransomware, your files will remain encrypted. Read more »
