LockerGoga Ransomware

LockerGoga Ransomware

LockerGoga Ransomware is a malicious application that encrypts almost every single file that is not associated with the operating system. The malware marks data it affects with the .locked extension, which is not particularly unique since other similar threats are using it as well. Later on, it should display a note explaining what has happened and what the victim is supposed to do to receive decryption tools. To be more precise, the hackers ask to pay a ransom. They do not say how much to pay but mention the price could depend on how fast the user contacts them. Anyone who encounters this malicious application or any threat alike should understand it would be unwise to trust cybercriminals. There are no guarantees they will do as promised, and if the victim does not wish to risk losing money in vain, we advise deleting LockerGoga Ransomware.

FCrypt Ransomware

Just in case the threat attacks, we have created a removal guide that shows how to get rid of it. More important, the guide explains how to protect the system and personal files to ensure that ransomware cannot invade in the first place.

FORMA Ransomware

FORMA Ransomware

If you run your Windows operating system using Polish, or you live in Poland, FORMA Ransomware is the threat you need to beware of, amongst thousands of others. While most infections are pretty versatile, and they use English to deliver messages intended for victims, once in a while, we see a threat that has a very specific target. That is how the threat we are discussing in this report works too. The distribution of this malware is still very mysterious, but it is likely that attackers could use spam email attacks to spread the launcher. The threat could be bundled with unreliable programs that might be available on Polish file-sharing websites too. The attackers could also spread malware randomly, but set it to attack only those systems whose IP addresses link to Poland. In any case, if this malware got in, you need to eliminate it as soon as possible, and Anti-Spyware-101.com research team is ready to help you. We have created a guide that should help you remove FORMA Ransomware, and we also discuss other options you have when deleting this dangerous infection. Read more »

Snatch Ransomware

Snatch Ransomware

Snatch Ransomware does not rename files it enciphers, but it may mark them with .snatch, .FileSlack, or .jupstb extensions. Later on, it ought to drop a ransom note that should be more or less the same no matter which version of the malware you receive. The words in the note claim that the user should not attempt to restore files himself if he does not wish to ruin them completely. Instead, the malware’s developers advise contacting them via email. Of course, we recommend against it, as they will most likely ask you to pay a ransom, and doing so could be hazardous. If you have no intention to risk your savings, we recommend ignoring the ransom note and erasing Snatch Ransomware. The instructions offered below this text will tell you how to remove the malicious application manually. If you are interested, you can also learn more about the threat by reading our full report.

Eq Ransomware

Eq Ransomware

Eq Ransomware is a dangerous infection that might invade your Windows operating system if you do not secure it appropriately. It is crucial that you install legitimate security/anti-malware software to keep the operating system guarded, and it is also important that you act cautiously. Most file-encrypting infections invade operating systems using the help of victims themselves, who, of course, have no idea what is going on. In a popular scenario, the launcher of the threat is camouflaged as a harmless file that is sent via email. If the victim clicks the file to open or download it, the malicious ransomware is executed immediately, without any notice. The threat needs to stay silent so that it could encrypt files and perform other malicious actions. Without a doubt, if you spot the infection right away, you must delete it; otherwise, your files will be destroyed. Continue reading if you want to understand what happens with your files, how to protect yourself in the future, and, of course, how to remove Eq Ransomware. Read more »

EnyBeny Ransomware

EnyBeny Ransomware

EnyBeny Ransomware is a version of EnybenyCrypt Ransomware. Its older versions could encrypt data or even delete files later on, but it looks like this version is not yet fully developed. According to our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com, it only changes user’s Desktop image and drops numerous copies of its ransom note all over the computer. Given it does not encrypt data yet, and users would have no reason to agree with any of the hackers’ demands, we doubt the malicious program could be distributed widely. Still, we do not say it is entirely impossible. In case you do encounter this version of EnyBeny Ransomware, we advise removing it with no hesitation. The instructions available below should help you get rid of it manually, and if you wish to know more details about the threat, we invite you to keep reading our article. Read more »

Scarab-Apple Ransomware

Scarab-Apple Ransomware

No doubt Scarab-Apple Ransomware belongs to the Scarab Ransomware family. Same as other threats from it, the malware encrypts user’s files and shows a note with instructions on how to receive a decryptor. This version has its own extension called .apple, which means data that get affected should be marked with it, for example, picture.jpg.apple. It is true the decryption tool the hackers may have should be able to unlock enciphered files, but there are no guarantees they will deliver it even if you meet all of their demands. In other words, paying the ransom could leave you not only with encrypted data but also with a lighter wallet. Therefore, we do not recommend contacting the malicious application’s developers if you do not want to take any risks. To clean the system and stop it from showing the threat’s ransom note after each restart, we advise deleting Scarab-Apple Ransomware with the instructions available below or your chosen antimalware tool.

FilesLocker Ransomware

FilesLocker Ransomware

FilesLocker Ransomware is a threat that enciphers files and places .[fileslocker@pm.me] extension at the end of each damaged file’s title. Unfortunately, even if you remove the extensions, the data will still be unreadable. The safest way to restore it is to replace locked files with backup copies. It is true, the hackers behind the malware offer their decryption tools in exchange for a payment, but needless to say, you cannot be sure they will keep up to their promises. Because of this, we advise not to take any chances and get rid of FilesLocker Ransomware. If you think it is the best course of action too, we encourage you to erase the malicious program with the instructions located at the end of the article or a legitimate antimalware tool of your choice.
