Dodger Ransomware

Dodger Ransomware

Dodger Ransomware locks your files and then shows a note blaming you for it.

If you do not want to risk it, we encourage you to get rid of Dodger Ransomware with the instructions placed below or a legitimate antimalware tool.

Sodinokibi Ransomware

Sodinokibi Ransomware

Sodinokibi Ransomware encrypts files on an infected device to make them unusable and shows a ransom note claiming the malware’s developers can recover all of them.

Poop Ransomware

Poop Ransomware

Poop Ransomware is a threat that shows a message threatening victims to pay a ransom, or else cybercriminals promise to leak user’s private data. Our specialists do not think there is a need to worry about such threats as the malicious application does not seem to be gathering the information that its creators threaten to leak. Another reason, we advise against paying it that you cannot be sure the cybercriminals will hold on to their end of the bargain. Whether you pay or not, they may not bother sending decryption tools that are needed to decrypt data locked by the threat. In some cases, hackers start asking for more money or victims never hear from them again. If you do not want to take any chances, you could remove Poop Ransomware from the system. It will not decrypt any data, but it will allow you to start anew with a malware-free computer. To learn how to erase the malicious application manually, you should have a look at the last paragraph and the instructions placed below it. Read more »

RMS RAT

Even if you do not have a rat infestation problem at your home, RMS RAT could have invaded your Windows operating system. Similarly to an actual rat, this dangerous infection gets in silently and eats away at your privacy without you knowing about it. Although it does not corrupt files, spy on users, steal sensitive data, remove files, or perform in other similar ways, it can be much more destructive than any other threats capable of such activity. That is because it gives cyber criminals access to the system, and they can exploit it in various ways. Most likely, the attackers would use it to drop other malicious infections. This dangerous malware, of course, requires immediate removal, but, unfortunately, since this threat is silent and does not have an interface, it could stay hidden for a long time. This is exactly why performing routine system scans is crucial. If you have already figured out that you need to delete RMS RAT from your operating system, do not waste any time. Read more »

0day Ransomware

If you do not take care of your operating system, 0day Ransomware could slither in and destroy your personal files. Although this infection does not remove them, it locks them up. The threat encrypts them using a unique encryption key, and, as a result of that, the files cannot be read. Unfortunately, only a unique decryption key can “unlock” your files, and we cannot provide you with it. A free decryptor that would work did not exist at the time of research either. If you find a tool that claims to restore your files, make sure you research it first because you do not want to let in more threats by accident. All in all, the only ones who appear to have the decryptor are the creators of the infection, and they are unlikely to let it go, even if you agree to all of their conditions. We talk more about that in this report. Of course, we want to focus on deleting 0day Ransomware, and if you too want to eliminate this malware from your Windows operating system, please continue reading. Read more »

HACK Ransomware

HACK Ransomware might be the reason why you cannot access your files. It can be recognized from a particular extension that it appends to its encrypted data. For example, in our case, the files on a test computer got marked with .id-B4501087.[mr.hacker@tutanota.com].HACK, e.g., document.docx.id- B4501087.[mr.hacker@tutanota.com].HACK. Data that has this extension should become unusable as the malicious application enciphers it with a strong cryptosystem. Therefore, the only way to reaccess it is to get a decryptor from the hackers behind the malicious application. Since the hackers will most likely ask for a payment, you should know the money could be lost for nothing, if you get scammed. Thus, even if it looks like it might be your only option, we recommend considering it carefully. To learn more about HACK Ransomware and how you can get rid of it, we advise reading the rest of our article. Read more »
