Rektware Ransomware

Rektware Ransomware

Rektware Ransomware is a file-encrypting malicious threat that turns the targeted victim’s files into useless data. Afterward, the malware drops a ransom note and shows the same text provided on a popup window that should be displayed on the computer’s screen. The message does not say a lot beside telling the victim to send a letter to a given email address. It may also contain the following phrase: (FreeDecryptAllYourFiles). It might look as if the malicious application’s creators promise to decipher victim’s data free of charge, but we highly doubt it considering such infections are usually created solely for money extortion. Perhaps, the hackers think they will be able to convince their victims to pay after all. If you continue reading our article, you will find out more information about the malware as well as deletion instructions for Rektware Ransomware provided below the report. Read more »

LIGMA Ransomware

LIGMA Ransomware

Malware experts agree: LIGMA Ransomware could become a serious threat. At this time, the infection is not complete, and its distribution is unlikely to have started. Of course, if you encounter it, you must remove it without further delay because it appears to have been created to encrypt files. Our research team at Anti-Spyware-101.com has found that the infection is programmed to encrypt 224 different types of files, which include documents, photos, archives, songs, videos, shortcuts, etc. The infection does not encrypt system files, and there is no point in doing that because the operating system can be reinstalled. On the other hand, when personal files are encrypted, their owners are more likely to accept the requests of cyber criminals just to get them back. The strange thing is that the infection in its current state does not make any requests. This isn’t bad news because even when victims have the opportunities to pay ransoms, they should not do it because cyber criminals are unlikely to give anything in return. All in all, even if it is not spreading yet, we want to show how to delete LIGMA Ransomware in case it strikes unexpectedly. Read more »

Termite Ransomware

Termite Ransomware

Termite Ransomware is a dangerous threat as it could encrypt various images and documents located on the infected device. Usually, such malicious programs show ransom notes demanding to pay for decryption tools. This application shows such a text too, but it might be impossible to read it. Our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com, say some computers might be unable to display the ransom note and so instead of the cybercriminals’ message you could see random characters. Obviously, without being able to read anything, the victim cannot know how to pay a ransom. However, we would not recommend doing so even if it was possible. The hackers may claim they can guarantee you will receive decryption tools, but in reality, there are no guarantees as they always ask to pay first and then what is left to do is to wait and hope the malware’s developers will bother to keep up with their promises. Instead of doing so we advise erasing the malicious application, and if you decide to remove Termite Ransomware, you can try eliminating it manually while following the instructions placed below.
