.crypted000007 File Extension Ransomware

.crypted000007 File Extension Ransomware is an old ransomware infection that was released around a year ago.

Karl Ransomware

Karl Ransomware

Karl Ransomware might be a devastating surprise to any user who does not back up his files and does not feel like paying around $500 to restore them. The malicious application locks all personal data and shows a note claiming a victim must pay to receive a tool that can decrypt all files. Of course, there are no guarantees such a tool will reach you. Thus, doing as told might result in you losing not just your data, but also a considerable sum of money. If you want to know more about the malware before choosing what to do, we encourage you to read our full article. On the other hand, if you have already decided not to comply with the hackers’ terms, you could erase Karl Ransomware by following our removal instructions provided below this text. Our researchers say it might be best to deal with the malware immediately since it could relaunch when the system restarts and encrypt more files. If deleting it manually seems too tricky, you can use a legitimate antimalware tool instead. Read more »

Hermes837 Ransomware

Hermes837 Ransomware

You need to take the security of your personal files seriously because Hermes837 Ransomware is just one of the thousands infections that could corrupt your files under the right conditions. Needless to say, this malware is most likely to affect systems that are unguarded, but lack of overall protection is not the only condition that the attackers need. In most cases, ransomware like this one spread using spam emails and bundled downloaders. In both cases, users have to open the spam emails and execute the downloaders, and so users’ carelessness is also a condition that, unfortunately, is not talked about enough. If cybercriminals manage to execute ransomware on your operating system, documents, photos, archives, videos, and various other types of files are encrypted, which means that data is scrambled. When it is scrambled, the files cannot be read, and if you cannot read your files, you might be manipulated into following the demands of the attackers. Instead of doing that, we recommend deleting Hermes837 Ransomware, but if you need more information before you can initiate removal, keep reading. Read more »

GoRansom Ransomware

GoRansom Ransomware

You have to secure your Windows operating system now because a single security crack could help the dangerous GoRansom Ransomware slither in. Also known as GoRansom POC Ransomware, this malicious threat was created for an unknown purpose. According to the Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, the infection might have been created by someone interested in experiments and tests, and maybe it is not intended for mass attacks. However, it is also possible that whoever stands behind this malware is learning and getting ready to strike in a real way, just like LOCKED_PAY Ransomware, Seto Ransomware, Save Ransomware, and many other malicious infections can. These threats – along with thousands of others alike – are created to corrupt files and demand money in return for decryption tools and software. The current version of the threat we are discussing in this report does not request that. While it is unlikely to attack, if it has encrypted your files, you must delete GoRansom Ransomware ASAP.

LOCKED_PAY Ransomware

LOCKED_PAY Ransomware

If your personal files were “locked” by LOCKED_PAY Ransomware, you might be thinking about following the instructions that were introduced to you by the creator of this infection. In fact, we do not really know if the attacker has also created the threat because it appears to have the code of the infamous Jigsaw Ransomware infection (just like Rodentia Ransomware, Bisquilla Ransomware, and other threats), and so it is possible that the attacker has simply used the code that was developed by the original creator. All in all, following the instructions by whoever is responsible for this malware is a bad idea. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that you are likely to waste your savings by following the demands that are delivered using a window launched by the threat. So, what are you supposed to do? Hopefully, you have backups that can replace the corrupted files, but if that is the case, we suggest that you delete LOCKED_PAY Ransomware before you move on. Read more »
