Repl Ransomware

Repl Ransomware

Repl Ransomware is a harmful application that encrypts files to take them as hostages. Afterward, the malicious application displays a ransom note in which the hackers behind the malware demand to pay a ransom in exchange for a decryptor and a unique decryption key. We advise not to make any rash decisions that you could later regret. As you see, the hackers may promise to deliver the guaranteed decryption means, but you cannot know for sure that they will do so. What we mean to say is that they could scam you. Therefore, we advise not to pay the ransom if you do not want to risk your money. If you need more time to decide what to do, we encourage you to read the rest of this article, containing more details about the malware. At the end of the text, we offer a removal guide that explains how users could delete Repl Ransomware manually. If you find the instructions a bit too complicated, we advise erasing the malicious application with a legitimate antimalware tool instead. Read more »

TorS@Tuta.Io Ransomware

TorS@Tuta.Io Ransomware

TorS@Tuta.Io Ransomware is a new threat from the GlobeImposter Ransomware family. It may encrypt various types of files to take them as hostages and then display a ransom note that asks to pay in Bitcoins to receive special decryption tools. The offer might sound tempting if you have no backup copies and no means to restore your files, but we advise thinking twice before making your final decision. Cybercriminals may seem friendly and tell you anything to convince you to pay a ransom, but, in the end, no one can know if they mean to hold on to their promises. Naturally, if you have no intention to fund cybercriminals or do not want to risk losing your money for nothing, we advise you to ignore the ransom note and erase TorS@Tuta.Io Ransomware. You can learn how to delete the threat as well as more details about its working manner if you read our full article. Read more »

GraceWire

GraceWire is a threat that uses stealth techniques to slither into Windows operating systems so that it could collect sensitive data without notice.

Nlah Ransomware

If Nlah Ransomware invades your system successfully, it messes with the data of your personal files, and also attaches the “.nlah” extension to mark them. The infection uses the method of encryption to ensure that you cannot read your own files, and that can push you into a very unfortunate situation. Our research team has thoroughly inspected this malicious file-encrypting malware, and we can guarantee that it is a clone of Usam Ransomware, Kuus Ransomware, Maas Ransomware, Sqpc Ransomware, and many other infections from the STOP Ransomware family. Quite likely, the same attacker is responsible for all, or at least most, of them, and there is proof for this conclusion. All in all, whether we are dealing with one attacker or hundreds of them, your system is just as vulnerable, and your files are just as locked. Sadly, it is not possible to recover the files by removing Nlah Ransomware. Nonetheless, this infection must be deleted ASAP, and we can show you how to do it. Read more »

Usam Ransomware

Windows users beware, Usam Ransomware is on the loose. Unprotected systems with unpatched vulnerabilities are the ones that are likely to be affected by this dangerous threat, but note that it might not need to use vulnerabilities or secret backdoors to slither in. It might simply trick you into executing it yourself. This could be done by hiding the launcher of the infection within spam emails or bundled downloaders. In fact, cybercriminals have many different ways, in which malware can be spread, and it is your responsibility to ensure that your own operating system is an impenetrable fortress. Unfortunately, to some users, that is easier said than done. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers know very well what happens when ransomware slithers into an operating system. If the threat is caught and removed in time, disaster can be avoided. If the threat encrypts files first, victims might be enveloped into a scam. Keep reading to learn more about this scam as well as how to delete Usam Ransomware. Read more »

Kuus Ransomware

If your computer cannot open your files and they have .kuus extension, your system might have been infected by a threat called Kuus Ransomware. It is a malicious file-encrypting application that uses a robust encryption algorithm to lock files that could be valuable. Afterward, the malware drops a ransom note asking to pay ransom if you want to get decryption tools that could unlock all files. The hackers may reassure you that you will get the promised tools, but, in reality, there are no guarantees that you will receive them. Therefore, we advise you to think carefully if you really want to deal with cybercriminals. Until you decide that you may want to learn more about the malware, in which case, we invite you to read the rest of this article. A bit below it, you should see our deletion instructions that show how you might be able to erase Kuus Ransomware manually. Read more »

Tabe Ransomware

Tabe Ransomware is a dangerous file-encrypting threat that can restart with the operating system. It is bad news, because there is a chance that every time it restarts it may start encrypting files again. Of course, such functionality might not affect the files that were already encrypted, but it could put new data at risk. If you want to know more about how this vicious threat works, where it comes from, and how it can be erased, we encourage you to read the rest of this article. Also, we can offer the instructions available at the end of this text. They show how users could erase Tabe Ransomware manually.

HAT Ransomware

HAT Ransomware

If your Windows operating system is not currently secured against malware, fix this problem ASAP because HAT Ransomware could invade through various different security cracks. Such cracks can be opened by spam emails, unpatched vulnerabilities, malvertising scams, unreliable downloaders, and so on. It does not take much for cybercriminals to find a victim, and if they are successful, all files found on the attacked system are encrypted. What does that entail? When files are encrypted, reading them normally is impossible. According to the researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com, a tool called ‘Rakhni Decryptor’ exists (created by ransomware researchers), but we cannot know for sure that you will be able to decrypt all of your files using it. Hopefully, that is the case, but even if you cannot recover files, you should not pay attention to the cybercriminals’ demands. Instead, you should focus on deleting HAT Ransomware. Read more »

Alpha865qqz Ransomware

Alpha865qqz Ransomware

You must protect your Windows operating system against Alpha865qqz Ransomware at all cost because if it manages to invade, it can encrypt everything. No, it does not encrypt system files, but that is only because the infection needs your operating system to function properly so that appropriate messages could be introduced to you. Other than that, all of your personal files can be corrupted, and that is done using an encryption key. This key is unique and strong, and so you cannot decipher the encrypted files yourself. Can third-party tools help? Free decryptor exist, but they cannot decipher secret keys. In some cases, cybersecurity experts are able to build free decryptors for the victims of ransomware, but that happens rarely, and that hasn’t happened for the Alpha865qqz infection yet. Unfortunately, files cannot be recovered by deleting Alpha865qqz Ransomware either. In fact, this malware should remove itself once it is done with the encryption of your personal files. Read more »

EG83 Ransomware

EG83 Ransomware

If you cannot recognize your files because their names were replaced with random titles and they have the .EG83 extension, you most likely encountered a malicious application called EG83 Ransomware. Such threats are usually used for money extortion, which is why the malware creates ransom notes in every directory that contains encrypted files and replaces a victim’s desktop picture with an image that also shows a ransom note. None of the messages say how much users would have to pay to get the tools needed for their files’ decryption. Whatever the price might be, we advise not to pay it if you do not want to risk getting scammed. To learn more about EG83 Ransomware like how it works, where it could come from, and how to erase it, we invite you to read the rest of this article. Read more »
