FlyBox Ransomware

FlyBox Ransomware

FlyBox Ransomware might need an invitation to slither into your operating system. Of course, it conceals itself first to ensure that you are not able to identify a security threat immediately. The infection can be concealed as a document file, and it could be sent to you via email or perhaps even social media platforms. The message accompanying the attachment should intrigue you and make you want to click it. The threat is unlikely to execute immediately, and you might have to click other buttons or accept certain demands first. For example, you might be asked to enable macros. If you do that, the infection executes silently. Fake updates and stealthy bundled downloaders could be employed as well. In any case, the infection is meant to trick you, and if it is successful, your files might be corrupted irreversibly. Should you remove FlyBox Ransomware to recover the files? This malware must be deleted, but do not expect for the files to be fully restored with this action. Read more »

Eknkfwovyzb Ransomware

Eknkfwovyzb Ransomware

If you run Windows, you have to watch out for Eknkfwovyzb Ransomware. This ransomware was created to encrypt your personal files, and let us assure you that it can encrypt pretty much all of your personal files. Once that is done, the “.eknkfwovyzb” extension is appended to them, and that is how you can assess the damages done. Unfortunately, fixing these damages is easier said than done. In fact, at the time that Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers analyzed this malware, there was no guaranteed way to get the files decrypted. The attackers behind the infection want you to believe something else, but we must warn you that this malware is just as dangerous as Wannacry666 Ransomware, Moba Ransomware, NYPD Ransomware, and thousands of other threats alike. Hopefully, the damages are not permanent, but that depends on what kinds of measures you have taken prior to the attack of this malware. Continue reading to learn more about that, as well as how to delete Eknkfwovyzb Ransomware. Read more »

Wannacry666 Ransomware

Wannacry666 Ransomware

Receiving the Wannacry666 Ransomware could cause many problems as the malware could encrypt files that you might be unable to replace, such as photos, important documents, videos, etc. Files that become encrypted can be restored, as instead of being damaged, they get locked. However, it is vital to have a unique decryption key and a decryptor to undo the encryption. As you can probably imagine, both of these decryption tools are not easy to come by. In fact, the only ones who may have them could be the malicious application’s developers who offer them only to those who pay a ransom. We advise not to make any rash decisions because paying the ransom does not guarantee that you will get the needed decryption means. If you want to know why and learn more details about this threat, you should read the rest of this article. At the end of the text, you can also find our removal instructions that show how users might be able to erase Wannacry666 Ransomware manually. Read more »

Moba Ransomware

Windows operating systems need to be protected against all kinds of malware, especially against Moba Ransomware and other file-encrypting threats that are created to lock all personal files and force their owners to make huge payouts for alleged decryptors. The issue is that even if ransoms are paid, decryptors are not offered, and victims find themselves empty-handed. Needless to say, if you are currently facing a file-encrypting threat, we hope that you have not contacted the attackers or paid the ransom yet. We do not recommend wasting time or money, and we hope that you do not need to either. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers indicate that Moba is a variant of the STOP Ransomware infection, for which a free decryptor has been built. STOP Decryptor does not guarantee full decryption, but it is the only decryptor that you can trust. Before you install the tool, you have to remove Moba Ransomware, and if you have no idea how to delete this threat from Windows, keep reading. Read more »

NYPD Ransomware

We must clarify right away that NYPD Ransomware has nothing to do with the New York Police Department. The name is random, and it is likely that its creator did not think much before attaching it to the infection. The truth is that there are too many threats just like this one, and so coming up with new and clever names is becoming harder and harder. We are talking about STOP Ransomware threats, and a few other variants that we can mention include Pezi Ransomware, Nlah Ransomware, and Usam Ransomware. There are hundreds more. The attacker(s) behind this malware did not need to put in any effort because every variant is a clone of the original infection. Perhaps that is why so many variants have been found. Needless to say, victims need to delete all of them, but before they do that, they are likely to pay attention to the ransom demands. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team can assure you that focusing on the removal of NYPD Ransomware instead of the ransom is a better use of your time. Read more »

Pezi Ransomware

Pezi Ransomware encrypts files and marks them with an extension called .pezi. For example, a document called receipt.pdf would become receipt.pdf.pezi after being encrypted. Why do hackers create file-encrypting threats? So that their victims would be unable to open their files and would feel like they have no choice but to pay ransom to purchase decryption tools from the malware’s creators. However, it is important to stress that paying the ransom does not guarantee that you will receive the needed decryption tools. The hackers may promise anything to convince you to pay, but, in the end, you cannot be sure that they will hold on to their end of the bargain. Therefore, we advise taking your time while thinking about what to do if you encounter this threat. To learn how to delete Pezi Ransomware and more about its working manner, we invite you to read the rest of this article. Read more »
