Karlosdecrypt@outlook.com Ransomware

Karlosdecrypt@outlook.com Ransomware

Karlosdecrypt@outlook.com Ransomware might be a unique infection, but it is not original. It comes from the Crysis/Dharma family of malware that encrypts files and demands money in turn for allegedly real decryption tools. A few other threats from this family are Backdata@qq.com Ransomware, Bestdecoding@cock.li Ransomware, and Helpfilerestore@india.com Ransomware. As you can see, unique email addresses are included in the names, and that is because these email addresses are the only thing that changes from one Crysis ransomware to the next. They are represented via the identical ransom notes that all of these threats display after they are executed and after they successfully encrypt files. Unfortunately, this malware can actually encrypt files, and once that is done, recovery is impossible. Without a doubt, this is the malware you want to avoid at all cost, and, if you still can, we suggest taking ALL security measures to keep it away. If the infection got in, and you need to delete it already, act quickly. You can learn how to remove Karlosdecrypt@outlook.com Ransomware by reading this report. Read more »

Jupstb Ransomware

Jupstb Ransomware

Jupstb Ransomware is quite a threat. It enters the operating system silently, and then it demands the victim to contact them via provided email addresses. The goal here is to make you communicate with the attacker so that they could push you to pay money to get your files decrypted. This, most likely, is exactly what you want, but you need to think carefully if that is a good idea. If you want our opinion, Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers strongly recommend NOT paying the ransom. In fact, it is best if you do NOT interact with the attackers in the first place. Unfortunately, this malware can hit the most personal and valuable files, and you might be willing to do whatever it takes to recover them. If these files matter that much, it is possible that you have them backed up outside the infected machine. In that case, quickly remove Jupstb Ransomware from your operating system and secure it to ensure that you do not need to face and delete other threats in the future. If you do not have backups, your files are likely lost already. Read more »

Backdata@qq.com Ransomware

Backdata@qq.com Ransomware

Recently we have encountered a lot of Crysis/Dharma Ransomware clones, and in this report, we will discuss one of the latest additions to the family, called Backdata@qq.com Ransomware. It works same as the threats before it, but it uses a slightly different extension to mark its files and there is a new email address for contacting the hackers behind this malicious application. As always, it is said the price depends on how fast the victim puts up with the cybercriminals demands. Same as with other malware alike there are no guarantees the message’s authors will hold on to their end of the bargain. It means you may not get what you pay for and, in the end, you could lose not just your files, but also your money. This is why we recommend not to pay the ransom, and if you do not mean to do so, we encourage you to erase Backdata@qq.com Ransomware. It can be done with a reliable antimalware tool or the instructions available below. Read more »

Bestdecoding@cock.li Ransomware

Bestdecoding@cock.li Ransomware

If we had to name one threat that Windows users need to avoid, Bestdecoding@cock.li Ransomware could be it. Although it is pretty unoriginal, it is a file-encrypting threat, which makes it very dangerous. Every file affected by this infection is modified to ensure that it can be read only using a special decryptor. Where is it? We do not know if it is a real thing at all, but if it is, cyber criminals must have it hidden somewhere out of research. If you were able to obtain the decryptor for free, there would not reason for malware attackers to create ransomware and communicate with victims. Read more »

Idiot Ransomware

Idiot Ransomware

Idiot Ransomware is a threat that can ruin various personal files located on the infected device. It is somewhat unusual since the note it shows does not ask to pay a ransom in exchange for decryption tools. Instead, the message is full of insults towards the victim, and it is signed by a hacker who calls himself tostring and a Minecraft master. Therefore, it looks like the reason for creating the malicious application could be discord between some gamers. It is difficult to say how many users could be infected, but if you are one of them, we advise you to read the rest of our text. In it, we will talk not only about how Idiot Ransomware can be deleted or how it works but also about how to stay away from such malware in the future. Additionally, we are placing removal instructions that show how to get rid of the malicious application manually just a bit below the article. Read more »

helpfilerestore@india.com Ransomware

helpfilerestore@india.com Ransomware

Spiteful Doubletake Ransomware

Spiteful Doubletake Ransomware may not be a very wide-spread infection, but it can still do its job. Just seeing the word “ransomware” should be enough for you to understand that this program is out there to collect your money for a ransom. These programs usually hold personal files “hostage” and expect users to pay the release fee as soon as possible. Needless to say, paying the fee is never an option, and this program, in particular, does not even offer that. In this case, you need to remove Spiteful Doubletake Ransomware from your system without taking a single look back. Read more »

LockerGoga Ransomware

LockerGoga Ransomware

LockerGoga Ransomware is a malicious application that encrypts almost every single file that is not associated with the operating system. The malware marks data it affects with the .locked extension, which is not particularly unique since other similar threats are using it as well. Later on, it should display a note explaining what has happened and what the victim is supposed to do to receive decryption tools. To be more precise, the hackers ask to pay a ransom. They do not say how much to pay but mention the price could depend on how fast the user contacts them. Anyone who encounters this malicious application or any threat alike should understand it would be unwise to trust cybercriminals. There are no guarantees they will do as promised, and if the victim does not wish to risk losing money in vain, we advise deleting LockerGoga Ransomware. For more information we invite you to read the full article, as for removal instructions, you should take a look at the steps available below. Read more »

FCrypt Ransomware

FCrypt Ransomware

FCrypt Ransomware is a threat that can encrypt files, but it is unlikely that it spreads and that it encrypts files in reality. First of all, our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has not found any victims of this malware. Second, the tested sample of the threat did not request a ransom, which is what most file-encrypting ransomware request. It appears that maybe someone created this malware just for fun or to educate themselves. In any case, even if this malware does not invade real operating systems that belong to regular Windows users, we cannot ignore it. Just in case the threat attacks, we have created a removal guide that shows how to get rid of it. More important, the guide explains how to protect the system and personal files to ensure that ransomware cannot invade in the first place. Note that the same security tips can be applied to avoid other kinds of malware too, and so you should continue reading. If you have questions – post them in the comments section. Read more »
