Sarut Ransomware

Sarut Ransomware

You might be unable to pinpoint the moment that the devious Sarut Ransomware slithered into your operating system, but if that is what has happened, you must have discovered that your personal files were encrypted. That means that the data was ciphered, and now you cannot read the files. Unfortunately, cybercriminals have found a way to encrypt your own documents, photos, and other kinds of personal files, and they are doing that to extort money. The goal is to make you pay a ransom in return for a decryptor that, allegedly, could restore all files. Isn’t that convenient? The attackers encrypt files and then offer a decryption tool in return for some money. Unfortunately, offers and promises made by cybercriminals cannot be trusted. If you succumb to their demands, you will waste $490 (or $980), and your files will remain encrypted. What if you delete Sarut Ransomware? Will your files be restored then? Unfortunately, that is not how file-encryptors work. That being said, the removal of this infection is crucial. Read more »

CovidLock Ransomware is a malicious application that is targeted at Android users who are looking for information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Ooss Ransomware

Ooss Ransomware

If your operating system is protected, Ooss Ransomware should not be able to sneak in. However, if you do not use protection tools, and if you are relying on your own ability to identify and remove malware before it is executed, it is unlikely that you will stand a chance of stopping this threat before it encrypts your personal files. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that this malware uses very sneaky ways to invade your operating system, and you are always involved in the process. For example, the infection’s launcher could be introduced via a bundled downloader as a helpful application. If you are tricked into executing this bundle, the ransomware slithers in immediately. In a different scenario, the launcher could be introduced via spam email as a document/PDF file that, allegedly, represents flight information, hotel reservation, postage delivery details, etc. If you open this file, the ransomware executes. After that, the only thing you can do is delete Ooss Ransomware. Read more »

Righ Ransomware

Righ Ransomware

Righ Ransomware is a tremendously clandestine infection that bets on people to be careless with spam emails and bundled downloaders. If you interact with spam email attachments and unreliable downloaders carelessly, you could let the infection in before you know what is going on. The launcher of this malware can be concealed in a clever manner, and you could be tricked into executing it yourself. Once the file is planted, it can do some serious damage. The main task for this malware is to encrypt your personal files, and it can do that successfully using a unique encryption key. A matching decryption key should exist, but you are unlikely to get your hands on it, which is why this kind of malware is so dangerous. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has analyzed the malicious infection, and our recommendation is that you delete it as soon as possible. Shouldn’t you figure out what to do about the encrypted files first? Well, we hope that you will be able to restore them after you remove Righ Ransomware. Read more »

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware leaves an extension called .remk on the files that it encrypts, which is where its title comes from. The malware encrypts files with a secure encryption algorithm. Meaning, files affected by it cannot be restored unless you have a unique decryption key and a decryptor. While the malware’s developers seem to have such tools, they are willing to share them only with victims who pay ransom. The worst part is that even if you pay the sum they ask and on time, you cannot still be certain that the hackers will hold on to their end of the deal. Therefore, dealing with the malicious application’s creators could make matters even worse if you end up losing your money as well. To learn more about the malware, we recommend reading the rest of this article. Also, since our specialists advise deleting Remk Ransomware, we encourage you to check our removal instructions placed at the end of this page. Read more »
