Sherminator Ransomware

Sherminator Ransomware

Sherminator Ransomware appears to be a new variation of Mr.Dec Ransomware. Same as its early version, it encrypts files and shows a ransom note. The note does not ask for a ransom as it only claims a user needs to email the malware’s developers. However, based on our experience with such threats, we believe the demands for payment could be delivered later on via email. It is vital to understand that the hackers may promise anything to convince their victims to put up with their demands, but there are no guarantees they will hold on to their promises. Meaning, even if you do as told, you might not get your files decrypted. Thus, we advise thinking twice before putting up with any demands. If you decide it is not an option, we recommend removing Sherminator Ransomware with no hesitation. To learn more about it and its deletion, we invite you to read our full article and check the instructions available below. Read more »

'The system is badly damaged, virus found (4)!' Pop-Ups

'The system is badly damaged, virus found (4)!' Pop-Ups

'The system is badly damaged, virus found (4)!' Pop-Ups are fake alerts that may show up if a user visits unreliable websites and interacts with questionable advertising content. These notifications might look legit due to Microsoft and Windows logos that might be displayed on them. It is essential to understand that Microsoft does not provide online virus scanners. Also, what should seem suspicious is that the scan is being performed without your permission. What we recommend for users who come across these fake alerts is to ignore what they say. Next, it is crucial to get rid of the 'The system is badly damaged, virus found (4)!' Pop-Ups and ensure that they do not come back. To do this, you could follow the instructions available below. For more information on these fake notifications, we invite you to read our full article. Read more »

Li Ransomware

Li Ransomware

Childhood photos, wedding videos, work or school documents, and other personal files can be corrupted by Li Ransomware if the conditions are right. These conditions include the Windows operating system being unprotected, users being careless/uneducated, and/or vulnerabilities being exposed. Although hundreds and thousands of file-encrypting infections are active as you read this, cybercriminals successfully find new victims. Of course, with more and more information being available, fewer and fewer Windows users are attacked. That being said, cyber attackers adapt quickly, and they learn new tricks to perform successful attacks, and so you must not let your guard down. If the malicious ransomware got into your operating system, you might believe that your personal files will be restored the moment you remove it, but that will not happen. Although you must delete Li Ransomware, it is likely that only the creator of the infection can restore your files, and, unfortunately, they are unlikely to do it. Read more »

Kvag Ransomware

Kvag Ransomware is a malicious computer infection that comes from a prominent ransomware family. Since it belongs to a group of ransomware infections we know very well, it is actually possible to decrypt part of the encrypted files, but you shouldn’t depend on that much because we cannot know whether the most important files get encrypted with the decryptable key. The most important thing is to remove Kvag Ransomware as soon as possible. After that, you can look for ways to restore your files, but it is also necessary to make sure that similar intruders do not enter your system again. Read more »

Domn Ransomware

Your Windows operating system cannot defend itself against Domn Ransomware unless you protect it appropriately and unless you stop acting carelessly online. According to our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, the attackers behind this dangerous infection could try to trick you into executing it yourself. For example, a fake email message could be sent to you with an alleged postage confirmation document. If you are tricked into opening this file, the infection can be executed without you even realizing it. This is just one example of how cybercriminals could attack you, and note that there are plenty of other methods they could use. Unfortunately, once inside the operating system, this infection can do a lot of damage because its primary task is to encrypt files. Once they are encrypted, you will not restore them even if you delete Domn Ransomware fast. Of course, the removal of this threat is important. Read more »

Moka Ransomware

Moka Ransomware

If you follow the instructions presented by the attackers behind Moka Ransomware, you will contact these attackers via email, and then you will pay money to obtain a decryptor. Although these instructions may seem pretty simple, you do not want to follow them. If you do, your money will be lost, but a decryptor is unlikely to be sent to you in return. Furthermore, by exposing yourself to attackers via email, you might open a backdoor for other scams in the future. Note that infections like this ransomware are often spread using clever spam emails with harmless-looking file attachments. This is why you need to protect your email account, and you want to remove all suspicious messages that you might receive from unknown senders. You must not forget to take care of your virtual security after you delete Moka Ransomware, but, of course, we need to figure out how to eliminate this threat first. Read more »

Caleb Ransomware

Caleb Ransomware

Any malware infection is a dangerous security threat, but something like Caleb Ransomware can be quite devastating. Ransomware infections are bound to lock up your files, and they will require you to transfer a ransom fee in order to restore your files. Needless to say, paying money to these criminals is never a good idea. Please scroll down to the bottom of this description for the manual ransomware removal instructions. If you do not feel confident about removing Caleb Ransomware on your own, feel free to invest in a powerful antispyware tool of your choice. Read more »

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 »
