STOP Ransomware (.peet variation)

STOP Ransomware (.peet variation)

STOP Ransomware (.peet variation), or Peet Ransomware, is a dangerous infection. Although it does not steal private information, drop other malicious files, or hijack your personal accounts, it corrupts your personal files. Documents, pictures, archives, and media files are encrypted, and the data within is changed, which renders the files unreadable. This is the first task that the infection needs to complete. Afterward, it has to convince you to pay money in return for a decryptor. The attack of this malware is very simple in its structure, but, unfortunately, it can be very successful and lucrative. If victims of the infection cannot recover their files for free, they might decide to fulfill the attackers’ demands, and Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers think that that would be a mistake. If you are not sure about what it is that you should do with the infection, its removal, and the recovery of your files, continue reading. If you are trying to delete STOP Ransomware (.peet variation) already, scroll down to find instructions. Read more »

Btos Ransomware

Btos Ransomware

If you let Btos Ransomware in, it will wreck your personal files. While some infections are able to steal, wipe, or remove files, this infection encrypts them. That means that the data within the files is changed so that the files themselves become unreadable. To put it simply, the infection hijacks your files, and it does not need to release them. The attackers behind the infection claim that files can be restored with the help of a decryptor that victims can purchase from them; however, that does not mean that the attackers would keep their promise to present the tool once the money landed in their pockets. According to the Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, victims of this malware are unlikely to find relief by paying the ransom, which is why we DO NOT recommend paying it. The good news is that victims might not need to take the risk of paying the ransom at all. To learn about this, as well as how to delete Btos Ransomware, you should continue reading the report.

Topi Ransomware

Topi Ransomware

Topi Ransomware is one of those infections that were created to mess with your private files. If it enters your operating system successfully, it is meant to encrypt photos, documents, media files, archives, and all other kinds of private files that are likely to mean a lot to you. Once encrypted, these files cannot be opened normally because the data is changed. That, however, does not mean that they are completely destroyed. If you can obtain a decryptor, it should restore the files back to normal. The problem is that the attackers are unlikely to provide you with a decryptor, and the free decryptor (STOP Decryptor) created by malware researchers might not work for you. Obviously, you do not need to worry about the recovery of files if you have backup copies, in which case, all you need to do is remove the corrupted files and replace them with copies. In any case, the first thing you need to do is delete Topi Ransomware. Read more »

JackSparrow Ransomware

JackSparrow Ransomware

JackSparrow Ransomware is an encryptor, and it goes after your personal files if it gets the chance to do so. It might get the chance if you open spam email attachments, download files from unreliable sources, interact with misleading advertisements, postpone system and software updates, or leave your operating system unprotected. Unfortunately, although there is plenty of information about malware, its distribution, and ways to prevent successful attacks, some Windows users continue to be careless, and that is why ransomware thrives. The bad news is that, in most cases, ransomware uses encryptors that cannot be deciphered, which means that victims are not able to recover their files. You certainly cannot recover files by deleting JackSparrow Ransomware. That being said, the removal of this malware is very important, and, hopefully, you can replace your files afterward. Needless to say, replacement is possible only if copies exist, and your chances of using them successfully are better if they are stored outside the infected computer. Read more »

MonCrypt Ransomware

MonCrypt Ransomware

Can you recover the files that were corrupted by MonCrypt Ransomware? It does not look like that is possible because the infection uses a unique encryptor that has not been deciphered yet. It is likely that no one will be able to decipher it as most ransomware infections remain undecryptable. At the time of research, free decryptors did not exist, and the tool offered by the attackers behind the infection could not be trusted. If you do not understand why that is so, we suggest that you read this report carefully. Of course, if you have paid the ransom, it is likely that you already know that cybercriminals cannot be trusted. Hopefully, you have not wasted your money yet, and you also can replace the corrupted files with securely stored backups.

BlueCheeser Ransomware

BlueCheeser Ransomware

Do you keep important files on the Desktop? If you do, BlueCheeser Ransomware might make a huge mess. It is a file-encrypting infection, but unlike most threats of this kind, it only targets files that are found on the Desktop.

Perhaps you have folders containing photos from your recent trips, or maybe you have documents that are important for your work or school projects. Whatever kinds of personal files you might have, they are bound to be encrypted if the infection manages to slither in and is not deleted in time. Needless to say, if you have yet to face this malicious infection – or any other kind of file-encryptor – you need to take appropriate security measures to ensure that your files and operating system are protected. If you already need to remove BlueCheeser Ransomware from your system, we are here to help, but it is unlikely that we can help you with the decryption of your files. Read more »

BBOO Ransomware
