Searchall.network

Searchall.network

Searchall.network might not raise any suspicion until you take a closer look at it. What our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com noticed, while testing the application in question, is that it does not provide information about the publisher’s policy on privacy issues usually explained on Privacy Policy. In fact, we did not find the software’s End User License Agreement document either. It means there might be no knowing how the application may work when searching the Internet with it or what information it could gather. Because of this, we do not think it would be wise to use Searchall.network. Provided you feel the same, we recommend deleting the questionable tool with the instructions located at the end of this article. For users who would want not only to get rid of the suspicious search engine but also learn more about it, we advise reading the text first. Read more »

Godsomware v1.0 Ransomware

Godsomware v1.0 Ransomware is a malicious threat that blocks user’s screen and displays a ransom note asking to pay for the decryption of user’s files the malware claims to have encrypted.

Luckily, we know how to unlock the screen without funding the cybercriminals who developed Godsomware v1.0 Ransomware, and if you want to know how to get rid of it too, you should check the steps available below this report.

WARNING! 41 threats found!!! Pop-Up

WARNING! 41 threats found!!! Pop-Up

The misleading WARNING! 41 threats found!!! Pop-Up was created to trick you into thinking that you have faced real infections that pose real threats. The number of these alleged threats, of course, can change, but the point is that this number is meant to intimidate you. Pay no attention to it or the warning itself because it does not represent the truth. Does not malware exist on your PC? It is possible that it does. Is the malware the warning is identifying real? It is not. The warning is fictitious, and its purpose is not to inform you but to intimidate you, and make you think that you must call +1-833-426-4666. This number might appear to be legitimate, but it actually belongs to schemers, and if you call it, you could get yourself into some real trouble. Have you done that already? Expect a huge bill. Also, think about the data you might have disclosed because it could be used against you. And what about the removal of the pop-up? As you might have figured out by now, you cannot close it normally. Do not worry, we can show how to delete WARNING! 41 threats found!!! Pop-Up from your screen in no time. Read more »

Nog4yH4n Project Ransomware

Nog4yH4n Project Ransomware

Windows users are alerted about Nog4yH4n Project Ransomware. At the time of research conducted by our expert Anti-Spyware-101.com analysts, the malicious infection was not spreading actively. That was, most likely, due to the fact that the infection did not work as intended. Since there is absolutely no way we could predict the emergence of new infections or the upgrade of ineffective ones, we cannot say that this ransomware is a non-threat. We have to think of all possibilities, and one of them is that the threat will be fixed up and unleashed to invade unguarded Windows operating systems. When this threat invades, it is meant to encrypt files and attach the “.locked” extension to their names. Unfortunately, once files are encrypted, it is not possible to decrypt them. The only chance the victims of file-encrypting malware have to restore their files is if they are backed up. Backup copies should be stored on virtual clouds or external storage drives to ensure that they are not affected by malware. Whether or not you need to delete Nog4yH4n Project Ransomware from your operating system already, this removal guide shows how to do it, as well as how to prevent ransomware from harming files in the future.
