Armage Ransomware

Armage Ransomware

Have you found your personal files with the .armage filename extension? If so, it is very likely that you have encountered Armage Ransomware, which is a new infection that targets users’ personal files. Like many other ransomware-type infections available on the market, this threat mercilessly locks all the most valuable users’ files, including documents and images. Without a doubt, the author of Armage Ransomware wants your money. It is very likely that you will be told that it is the only way to unlock encrypted data if you contact the author, but you would make a huge mistake by sending a demanded ransom because you have zero guarantees that those affected files will get back to normal, or you will get a decryption key to unlock your files with. No, you will not get your money back in this case. No matter what you decide to do, make sure you do not keep the malicious application you have encountered active on your computer. Luckily, the removal of Armage Ransomware should be quick and easy since this threat deletes itself once executed, leaving only the text file on the victim’s computer. Read more »

Boris HT Ransomware

Boris HT Ransomware might encipher user’s data and then show a ransom note saying it is necessary to contact the malware’s creators to find out how to decrypt affected data. Usually, in such cases, hackers ask their victims to pay a ransom and promise to send decryption tools right after the payment is confirmed. Unfortunately, there are cases when users do all that is asked and just never hear from the malicious program’s creators ever again. Thus, it is safe to say, paying the ransom is not something we would recommend.

On the other hand, if you would like to learn more about Boris HT Ransomware before deciding whether to erase it, we invite you to read the rest of this article. Read more »

Unlock92 Zipper Ransomware

Cryptolite Ransomware

There are several different ransomware infections that encrypt users’ files and append the .encrypted filename extension, but Cryptolite Ransomware is undoubtedly the one that has slithered onto your computer, discovered where you keep your precious personal files, and locked them if you have also found a window with a message opened on your Desktop.

Lanran Ransomware

Lanran Ransomware

It is crucial to protect your operating system and practice safe browsing; otherwise, Lanran Ransomware could invade sooner than you think. This malware can use spam emails, malicious downloaders, other infections, and system vulnerabilities to invade the Windows operating system and take over files. The infection does not leak or remove files, but it encrypts them, and that might be the end of them. Encryption is a security measure that is meant to ensure that the file can be read only if the right decryption key is applied, and, of course, cyber criminals are the only ones who know the decryption key of the ransomware. What that means is that you cannot recover files manually. Unfortunately, we do not have good news when it comes to the recovery option proposed by cyber criminals. We discuss that further in the report, along with the removal tips that you need if you wish to delete Lanran Ransomware successfully. Are you ready to tackle this threat? Let’s get to it.

Zzz12 Ransomware

Zzz12 Ransomware

Zzz12 Ransomware is not one of those prevalent malicious applications that affect thousands of users’ computers and manage to swindle them out of thousands of dollars, but it might still infiltrate your computer and cause you serious security-related problems. Without a doubt, the ransomware infection will lock personal files on your computer. Specialists say that it should not lock any system files, but there is no doubt that you will find your personal files encrypted. Ransomware infections choose the most important users’ files to encrypt because cyber criminals know that users will pay only for valuable files like documents or pictures. Zzz12 Ransomware has even been developed to delete Shadow Volume Copies of files so that users could not decrypt them for free. The ransomware infection does not tell users that they have to pay to get files decrypted, but even though the ransom note it drops after encrypting data does not include this information, we are sure you will not be given the decryptor for free. Usually, decryptors that can unlock files affected by ransomware infections are extremely expensive. Do not spend a cent on such a tool because you do not know whether you will get it from crooks behind malware you have encountered. The ransomware infection will not be automatically removed from the system for you too even if you make a payment. Read more »

GameOver Ransomware

GameOver Ransomware

The invasion of GameOver Ransomware might mean it is “game over” for your personal files. When this malware enters the system, it immediately starts encrypting your photos, video files, documents, and application files. At the time of research, 173 different types of files could be affected by the malicious infection, some of which include .avi, .mp4, .rar, .jpg, .html, and .doc. When the files are encrypted, the “.gameover” extension is added to their names, which can help you assess the damages quicker. At the time of analysis, a legitimate decryptor did not exist, which means that if the infection slithers in and encrypts data, there isn’t a guaranteed solution to the problem. Unfortunately, that is something most users dealing with malicious ransomware face. A few other threats that act the same way include GandCrab4 Ransomware, Everbe 2.0 Ransomware, Ra Ransomware, and Patagonia92@tutanota.com Ransomware. While we can help you delete all of them, we cannot help you when it comes to the decryption of your personal files. Of course, if you want to learn more before you remove GameOver Ransomware, you should continue reading. Read more »

Ra Ransomware

However, when it comes to Ra Ransomware and other ransomware infections, such logic might not always work. Even if a ransomware program has certain flaws, it usually always performs one thing very well: and that is the encryption. So even if the program does not convey its message properly, it can still paralyze your system. Hence, you will see that even after you remove Ra Ransomware from your computer, you still have a lot of things left to fix. Read more »
