C0hen Locker Ransomware

C0hen Locker Ransomware

C0hen Locker Ransomware locks not your computer, but some of the files located on it. To be more precise, the malicious application encrypts files, and, as a result, they become unreadable as victims cannot open them. There is a way to restore such data, but it requires having a decryptor and a unique decryption key. Sadly, only the malware’s developers may have these means that could restore files, and they demand a ransom in exchange for them. The worst part is that even if you pay what they ask, you might still end up being scammed. Therefore, we do not recommend putting up with the hackers’ demands. Also, we advise deleting C0hen Locker Ransomware as quickly as you can because if it stays, it might relaunch after you restart your computer and encrypt files that you may yet create or obtain. To learn how to eliminate C0hen Locker Ransomware as well as other things about it, we invite you to read our full report. Read more »

BIOLOAD

Can you name an infection that impersonates a legitimate Microsoft .DLL file to carry out malicious actions? BIOLOAD is an infection that is capable of doing just that. This malware sneakily plants its own binary along with an authentic binary, and then it uses it to drop malware. More specifically, we are talking about Carabank, a dangerous banking Trojan that has, in the past, cleaned out money from online banking systems and even ATMs. Undoubtedly, the sneaky infection we are talking about in this report was, most likely, created to target banks and very specific systems. Could regular Windows users be affected? Perhaps, the attackers employing it could change tactics. Ultimately, when it comes to malware and cybercriminals, unpredictability is the only predictable thing, and so we would not reject the possibility that pretty much anyone could face the threat. Obviously, regardless of whether you are a banked or a stay-at-home mom, you need to remove BIOLOAD. Continue reading for removal tips. Read more »

PhobosImposter Ransomware

PhobosImposter Ransomware

PhobosImposter Ransomware is a threat that adds the .phobos extension to each file that it enciphers. The malicious application uses a strong encryption algorithm, which is why files that get affected become unusable unless a victim has a decryption tool. Sadly, usually, decryption tools cannot be downloaded from the Internet. That is because hackers are often the only ones who have such tools, and they provide them only to those who pay a ransom. Cybercriminals behind PhobosImposter Ransomware are not an exception as they claim they want to receive a payment in Bitcoins in the malware’s displayed ransom note. Before deciding what to do, we encourage you to find out more about this malicious application, which you can do if you read the rest of our article. If you decide you wish to erase PhobosImposter Ransomware, we recommend checking our removal instructions that you can find at the end of the text. Read more »

BDDY Ransomware

BDDY Ransomware

BDDY Ransomware belongs to the Matrix Ransomware family.

Naturally, if you do not think you can risk losing your money in vain, we advise not to put up with any demands.
