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.

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.

Josephnull Ransomware

Josephnull Ransomware is an infection that you are unlikely to notice upon entrance but are bound to face once the attackers want that. The infection works in several stages.

Finally, it reveals itself with the help of ransom note files, at which point it blatantly demands money. Hopefully, you have not been victimized by this malware yet, but if you have, you want to remove Josephnull Ransomware as soon as possible.

Smpl Ransomware

Smpl Ransomware

It is possible that you have no idea where Smpl Ransomware came from. All you might know is that this infection encrypted the personal files on your operating system, but you cannot pinpoint the moment of its attack and entrance. If you know exactly when this infection slithered in, you might be able to locate and delete the launcher file that is responsible for it all. Unfortunately, if you eliminate the launcher after the encryption of your files, you save them. The encryption process is not complicated at all, but it enables the attackers to lock you out, so to speak. Once files are encrypted, their data is scrambled, and the purpose of that is to ensure that only a decryptor can read it. We hope that you can recover your files, but we want to help you understand why trusting cybercriminals’ promises is a terrible idea. Continue reading to learn more about that as well as how to delete Smpl Ransomware from your Windows operating system. Read more »

Wholocked Ransomware

Wholocked Ransomware

Wholocked Ransomware is the kind of infection that you are likely to remember for a long time if it manages to invade your Windows operating system even after you delete it. This threat is sneaky, and it can attack without you fully realizing it. According to our experts at Anti-Spyware-101.com, files attached to misleading spam emails and RDP vulnerabilities could be used to distribute the infection. If it is successful at invading your system, it should be able to encrypt all of your personal files. Unfortunately, that means that your documents, photos, videos, archives, and other personal files should become unreadable. The encryption key that this malware employs is unique, and free decryptors cannot crack it. Unfortunately, at the time of research, malware researchers had not built a working decryptor either. This means that the victims of this malware are stuck. Can you recover your files by removing Wholocked Ransomware? If only that were the case. While you must get rid of the infection, do not expect that your files will be restored afterward. Read more »
