WannaRen Ransomware

WannaRen Ransomware

WannaRen Ransomware might sneak onto your system by exploiting a vulnerability known as EternalBlue. If it does, all your documents, pictures, and other valuable files could become encrypted. As a result, your computer would be unable to recognize and open the affected files. The malware’s creators claim that users who pay ransom can get their files decrypted, but we recommend not to trust them blindly as they could be lying. What we do advise is to remove WannaRen Ransomware from your system if you do not want it to cause you more trouble. If you need any help with its removal you could use the deletion steps provided below this article or a legitimate antimalware tool that could take care of this malicious application. In case you are not sure what you should do yet, we invite you to read our full article and learn more about the malware. Read more »

FireBird RAT

FireBird RAT is a dangerous infection that can be used by pretty much anyone in a number of ways. This remote access trojan/tool was created by an unknown malware developer, who then decided to sell it on underground forums. This ensures that only interested parties – a.k.a. hackers – are able to obtain it. We do not know what price this tool is sold at, but that is done in anonymous ways, and that is why it is impossible to catch the seller and the buyer. Unfortunately, because virtually anyone can purchase the RAT, it can be used in many different ways, and its distribution can be unique as well. So, while some victims might execute the threat themselves as they open spam email attachments or files/links sent to them on social networking platforms, a different trojan could be employed to expose the RAT to others. Unfortunately, once inside the system, this malware stays hidden, and so victims are not supposed to know that they need to delete anything. Of course, the removal of FireBird RAT must be handled ASAP. Read more »

Nppp Ransomware

Nppp Ransomware

Nppp Ransomware is a malicious computer infection. This program will enter your system surreptitiously, and it will not let you do anything unless you pay the ransom fee. All ransomware programs are there to rip their victims off by pushing them into purchasing file decryption tools. Sometimes, those tools don’t even work. Thus, you should refrain from paying anything to these criminals, and you have to focus on removing Nppp Ransomware from your computer. You can find the manual removal instructions below, but it is also strongly recommended to invest in a licensed antispyware tool. Read more »

Fiaharam.net

Fiaharam.net

The information, offers, suggestions, and requests introduced to you via Fiaharam.net must be disregarded completely because this adware server is likely to be used by completely unreliable parties. If you think that you will be able to get paid when you share links on the Internet using the service, you are very far off the reality. In fact, if you are tricked into sharing links, you could, potentially, expose the communities you belong to, your followers, friends, and colleagues to scams, unreliable installers and perhaps even malware. Due to this, it is strongly recommended that you stay away from this adware server at all times. Have you been tricked into enabling the notifications by this server already? If you have, you now must be flooded with ads, and we can help you get rid of them. Hopefully, the only thing you need to do is remove Fiaharam.net notifications, but just in case you are dealing with something more ominous, please scan your operating system immediately. If the scanner detects threats, delete them ASAP. Read more »

ProLock Ransomware

ProLock Ransomware

If you use remote access tools, you have to make sure that no vulnerabilities exist because ProLock Ransomware is one of the many infections that could exploit them for unauthorized access. This kind of malware cannot invade operating systems that are guarded. Unfortunately, many Windows users are pretty lax when it comes to cyber security, and that is why malware is thriving. According to Anti-Apyware-101.com researchers, PwndLocker Ransomware is the predecessor of this dangerous infection, and sadly, it is stronger as well. The old version had a bug that allowed victims to decrypt their files, and when the new variant encrypts files, they cannot be recovered manually. In fact, we do not know if they can be recovered at all. Of course, that is not what cybercriminals want you to think. They want you to think that you can purchase a decryptor from them. Instead of wasting your money, we recommend focusing on deleting ProLock Ransomware. To learn more about the infection and its removal, keep reading. Read more »

Revon Ransomware

Revon Ransomware

Revon Ransomware is a malicious application that encrypts databases, pictures, videos, various documents, and other files that could be personal or valuable. Since the malware uses a strong encryption system, files that get encrypted become unreadable. Unfortunately, if your computer cannot read your files, it cannot open them. The process could be reversed, but in order to do it you would need unique decryption tools that only the malicious application’s creators have. Victims of this malware should see a note in which the hackers ask to pay ransom and promise to deliver the needed decryption tools in exchange. If you want to learn why we do not recommend putting up with their demands as well as more information about the malware, we encourage you to read the rest on this article. If you are looking for instructions on how to delete Revon Ransomware, you should check the steps available below this text too. Read more »

Jest Ransomware

Jest Ransomware

Jest Ransomware is one of the many ransomware infections that have been terrorizing computer users worldwide. They come stealthily and then turn your entire world upside down. Jest Ransomware will also do the same: the infection will slither into your system, encrypt your files, and then it will demand that you pay a ransom to get your files back. We would like to point out that paying the ransom might not solve anything. These criminals could just collect the money and scram. Hence, you need to remove Jest Ransomware first, and then look for other ways to restore your files. Read more »

Npsk Ransomware

Npsk Ransomware

When Npsk Ransomware invades a system, it immediately encrypts files and also attaches the “.npsk” extension to their names. The infection does that to mark the files that were corrupted so that victims would not need to sift through the files to see which ones cannot be read. They cannot be read because the threat ciphers their data. This ensures that only a special private key can help read files. Unfortunately, that is a great power in the hands of cybercriminals because they can convince Windows users to pay money in return for the decryption key. Would they give the key after the payment was made? Most likely, they would not, and that is why paying the ransom that the attackers request is the worst thing you could do. In fact, contacting the attackers to pay the ransom is just as bad, and we discuss why further in the report. Obviously, if you want to remove Npsk Ransomware, we can help you with that; however, when it comes decrypting the corrupted files, we might not be able to help. Read more »
