MonitorMinor Infringes on the Security of Android Users

Not too long ago, MonitorMinor could be downloaded from monitorminor.com. At the moment, when you visit the website, it claims to be under construction. Quite possibly, the developer of the tool has paid attention to the findings of cybersecurity researchers, who have discovered that this particular tool can be used to spy on Android users in a particularly aggressive manner. Originally, this app is promoted as a security tool that can help parents control the content that their children can access and interact with. Of course, users do not need to provide proof that they are parents or that they would use MonitorMinor to spy on their children. Unfortunately, virtually anyone could use this tool. That includes suspicious employers, jealous lovers and exes, crazy roommates, mischievous siblings, and so on. In the worst-case scenario, this app could be exploited by criminals, who have no regard for victims’ personal security and privacy. Read more »

Qewe Ransomware

Qewe Ransomware

Qewe Ransomware is a file-encryptor, and it is not one of those infections that was built to destroy your operating system. In fact, it avoids all system files because it needs your operating system to run orderly; otherwise, it would not be able to make the ransom demand. Instead, this malware only encrypts personal files, and that means that photos, documents, music files, and other pieces of data cannot be read anymore. File encryption is usually employed to secure files, but cybercriminals are using it to make it impossible for their owners to read them. This is done so that the attackers could sell you their own decryptor. Fortunately, a free decryptor (STOP Decryptor) was created by researchers, and you might be able to restore at least some of the files using it. Should you invest in the decryptor offered by the attackers? You should not because, according to the team at Anti-Spyware-101.com, that would be a waste of money. Unfortunately, even if you remove Qewe Ransomware, your files will remain encrypted. Read more »

Mpal Ransomware

Mpal Ransomware

Your Windows operating system is vulnerable to threats like Mpal Ransomware if you do not take your time to secure it. First and foremost, you should have reliable security software installed to defend you against any incoming threats.

For example, if you open spam email attachments or download file bundles from unreliable sources without any caution, you are simply asking for trouble. Once malware is in, it can cause all kinds of issues. Ransomware specifically is all about encrypting files and demanding money (aka, ransom). In this report, Anti-Spyware-101.com research team explains how to delete Mpal Ransomware and how to make sure that you do not need to remove other similar threats in the future. Read more »

BOMBO Ransomware

BOMBO Ransomware

You must be aware that ransomware is spreading across the world. BOMBO Ransomware is just one of the many file-encrypting infections that can slither into your operating system if you open the door. Of course, you are tricked into doing that by opening spam email attachments/links or downloading files from unreliable websites. In some cases, however, action from you is not needed at all. The attackers can use other threats and existing vulnerabilities to distribute malware without your notice. Once the ransomware is in, it can encrypt photos, music files, and documents, videos, and everything else that you might keep close to your heart. Well, unless you have copies of your personal files stored somewhere safe, you are in trouble. Once files are encrypted, the data is scrambled, and that makes files unreadable. The attackers hope that this would be enough to make you pay a ransom. Instead, you should focus on deleting BOMBO Ransomware. Your files cannot be recovered by performing successful removal, but your security can be restored. Read more »

Zeronine Ransomware

Zeronine Ransomware

Are your personal files safe? You might think that they are until Zeronine Ransomware slithers in, changes their data, and makes it impossible for you to read them. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that this threat is just as dangerous as Covm Ransomware, CovidWorldCry Ransomware, Koti Ransomware, and hundreds of other infections alike.

This leads them to contacting their attackers and sometimes even following their instructions. Hopefully, you understand that that is not a good idea, and you understand that deleting Zeronine Ransomware has to become your priority. If you have no way of recovering or replacing your files, you might consider taking risks, but let us warn you that cybercriminals cannot be trusted, and their promises are likely to be bogus.

Covm Ransomware

Covm Ransomware

How important are your personal files for you? If they are important, Covm Ransomware is the threat that you need to keep away at all costs. Once this malware slithers in, it instantly encrypts all documents, videos, photos, archives, and other personal files, which renders them unreadable. In theory, a decryptor should exist, but because the threat belongs to cybercriminals, you should not expect to obtain it. They will use the decryptor as bait to get your money, but that does not mean that they will conduct a fair exchange if you do everything that they want you to do. Hopefully, you have not been pushed into paying the ransom yet. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that you are unlikely to get anything in return for it, and so we suggest keeping your money to yourself. Does that mean that you have to come to terms with the fact that your personal files are lost? There is hope that you could restore your files after removing the infection. First, however, you need to delete Covm Ransomware. Read more »
