DeathRansom Ransomware

DeathRansom Ransomware

The invasion of DeathRansom Ransomware might lead to the pseudo death of your personal files. This threat is capable of employing a unique algorithm to encrypt personal files, after which they are no longer readable. Although the creator of the infection does not seem to care about the files that are encrypted – in a sense that they do not read them or try to leak them online – they take the files hostage. After encryption, demands for a ransom payment are introduced to the victims, and it is claimed that victims can recover their files only if the ransom is paid. Unfortunately, there is no proof that files would be decrypted if the ransom was paid, and so Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers do not advise paying the ransom. If you did the opposite, it is likely that your files would go to waste. If you are ready to delete DeathRansom Ransomware from your operating system, check out the last section of the report that discusses the removal of this threat.

ABCD Ransomware

ABCD Ransomware

ABCD Ransomware is a textbook file-encryptor, and so the name suits it very well. It is very predictable indeed, but that does not make this malware any less dangerous. If it slithers in successfully, and if there is no security software to catch and delete it in time, your personal files can be locked up for good. Also known as LockBit Ransomware, this malware does not have a free decryptor. In some cases, such tools are created by malware experts, but creating a working decryptor is not an easy task, and that is why we do not have free decryptors for most infections. Unfortunately, due to his, the victims of this malware might feel trapped, and if they feel trapped, they might be pushed into following the attackers’ demands. Victims are promised “decryptor software” if they do as told, but trusting cybercriminals and their promises is always risky, and we cannot guarantee that you will be given what you need. To add insult to injury, the files are not automatically restored when you remove ABCD Ransomware. Read more »

Rote Ransomware

Rote Ransomware

If your personal files cannot be read, and the “.rote” extension is added to their names, you can blame Rote Ransomware for that. This clandestine infection slithers in and wreaks havoc on your personal files before you can figure out what is going on. Once files are fully encrypted, the infection uses a text file to introduced victims to a ransom demand, according to which files can be restored only if the victim pays $980 for a decryption tool provided by the attackers. If you know anything about cybercriminals, you must know that they often cheat and tell lies to reach their goals. In this case, their goal is to make money, and they are clearly willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Unfortunately, files are not restored when victims delete Rote Ransomware, and that is what might push them into a corner. Hopefully, you can find an alternative way to regain access to your personal files, and you can remove the threat without hesitation. Read more »

Trojan.PyXie.A

Trojan.PyXie.A is a malicious computer infection that can remain hidden in the target system for a long time before the infected users does anything about it. It is a Trojan that works as a Remote Access Tool (RAT), and so it has a pretty wide functionality, which allows other cybercriminals to make use of this infection. In some cases, Trojan.PyXie.A can also be used to distribute ransomware, so the sooner you remove it from your system the better. The best way to find out whether you have this threat on-board is to run regular system scans with a reliable security tool. Read more »

Msop Ransomware

Msop Ransomware

Msop Ransomware is not the kind of threat that you would ever consider to be harmless. It does not try to disguise itself because that is not something that cybercriminals behind this malware need to do. Sure, they need to execute this malware silently, so that your personal files could be corrupted without disturbance, but once that is done, the threat needs to reveal itself. The purpose of this threat is to push victims into paying a ransom in return for a tool that, allegedly, could be used to decrypt files. Therefore, once files are corrupted, the infection immediately introduces you to a file named “_readme.txt.” We discuss the contents of this text file further in the report. We also discuss how the infection spreads, and how to keep your operating system protected against it in the future. Most important, we discuss how to delete Msop Ransomware, and we are almost certain that you have found this article because you already know just how important the removal of this threat is.

Zobm Ransomware

Zobm Ransomware

When you discover that your personal files cannot be opened normally, you might automatically think that a system error has occurred, but Zobm Ransomware might be to blame for that. This infection is clandestine at first, and it might be dropped by other infections or slither in using an unpatched vulnerability. Users could be tricked into letting it in by opening spam email attachments or downloading files from unreliable websites too. If the threat manages to remain undetected, it can silently encrypt files, which means that the data is changed. The “.zobm” extension is also added to the names of the encrypted documents, photos, and other types of personal files to help you spot them quickly. At this point, you might still think that some error has occurred, and you might even try to remove the added extension. Soon after, the infection reveals itself so that demands could be made, and it is too late to delete Zobm Ransomware to prevent file damage. Read more »

FUCKaNDrUN Ransomware

FUCKaNDrUN Ransomware

FUCKaNDrUN Ransomware is an obnoxious name for an obnoxious infection, and so it completely makes sense. If this dangerous threat finds a security backdoor via which it can enter a vulnerable operating system, it immediately slithers in, and, unfortunately, it does that silently. Therefore, you might suspect not a thing while your files are being encrypted. The process of encryption is very simple as a unique algorithm is used to cipher the data within the file. Normally, that is what people use to lock and protect their files. Unfortunately, cybercriminals are using this method to hijack personal files and then hold them hostage. If you have been introduced to the message created by the infection already, you know that attackers want money. Well, paying the ransom is risky, and even if you do it, you will need to remove FUCKaNDrUN Ransomware from your operating system. Unfortunately, even if you succeed at deleting this malware, your files are unlikely to be restored. Read more »

Mosk Ransomware

Mosk Ransomware

Mosk Ransomware is one of the newer threats from the Stop Ransomware family. Some malicious applications from this family encrypt victims’ files with offline keys. Specialists say that in such cases, it is possible to decrypt data. Unfortunately, it appears that this version encrypts files differently, which is why its affected files are currently undecryptable. Even so, we do not advise asking for the cybercriminals who created this malicious application to help you. They demand to pay a ransom in return, and the worst part is that there are no guarantees they will provide what they promise. Of course, before you decide, you should learn more about the malware, which is why we advise reading our full article. Also, users should know that it would be safer to erase Mosk Ransomware, which is why we provide manual deletion instructions at the end of this page. Read more »
