Rabbit Ransomware

Rabbit Ransomware

Rabbit Ransomware was created to terrorize Windows users. If it is executed on the operating system successfully – which means that the victim does not notice and remove the launcher right away – it can imitate a real lockdown. Considering that file-encrypting infections are some of the most common these days, this might automatically send some victims into panic. Even though this particular threat does not actually claim to have encrypted files, it states that files would be eliminated if a ransom was not paid within 24 hours. The ransom that the screen-locker presents is relatively small (when compared to some other recent threats), and that might lead to higher success rates. On the other hand, even if victims are tricked into paying up, the consequences would not be too horrific. All in all, paying schemers is not something anyone should do, and, luckily, no one has to. There is a special code that should unlock the screen-locker, and, after that, you should be able to remove Rabbit Ransomware. Read more »

Gillette Ransomware

Gillette Ransomware

If you cannot open your files, and you can see the “.GILLETTE” extension appended to them, there is no doubt that Gillette Ransomware is the culprit. This is a tremendously dangerous infection that can encrypt your files with the help of a complex algorithm. This algorithm is so strong that cracking it manually is not possible. While, in some cases, free decryptors are discovered and made public, this is not the case with this malicious threat. That means that once files are encrypted, you are in the mercy of the attackers. That is exactly what they want because if you believe that they are your only saving grace, you might start believing that you have to pay money to get your files back. Even though that is what the attackers want from you, we strongly recommend thinking long and hard about this “option.” Most likely, if you pay the ransom, you will not get whatever it is that the attackers are promising, and you will be left empty handed. Unfortunately, if the infection attacked, it is most likely that you can do nothing more than to delete Gillette Ransomware. We discuss your removal options in this report. Read more »

TreasureHunter

TreasureHunter is a rather old Trojan, but it seems to be active to this day. According to our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com, the malicious application was created around 2013 on a Windows XP computer. Apparently, the threat has not been updated ever since, and it still works only on devices running Windows XP. Thus, if your device uses any other operating system, you may have nothing to worry about. As for those who have encountered this infection we advise reading our full article. In it, we will talk about what the Trojan can do if it enters the system and how to eliminate TreasureHunter as soon as possible. In fact, to make the task easier for those who may want to get rid of the malicious application manually, we prepared step by step deletion instructions available just a bit below this article.

GoldenAxe Ransomware

GoldenAxe Ransomware

If you are ever exposed to GoldenAxe Ransomware, remember that you must delete this malicious threat immediately. If you are currently facing this infection, we will help you eliminate it quickly. Unfortunately, the damage might have been done already, and if that is the case, nothing can be done to fix it. You might be convinced that you could pay money to get your files decrypted, but cyber attackers are using this bait to make you give away your savings. They could not care less about the victims’ personal files, and as soon as they get the money, they are ready to seize all communication with them. What about third-party tools? At the time of research, tools that could decrypt files affected by this particular infection did not exist. That being said, if you want to look into that yourself, it might be worth your time. Just remember that fake decryptors might exist! In the end, you need to remove GoldenAxe Ransomware, and the sooner you get rid of this infection, the better. Read more »

KingMiner Cryptojacking

KingMiner Cryptojacking connects to the Internet without any permission and uses the computer’s CPU to mine cryptocurrency. It is a malicious application that allows hackers to generate money while using another computer’s resources. Since the threat enters the system without the user’s permission, it falls under the classification of Trojans. Our researchers say it is difficult to detect and users may only suspect something could be wrong because of the worsened computer’s performance. If you think your system might be infected with KingMiner Cryptojacking, we recommend learning more about it by reading the rest of this report. The removal instructions available below could be of use to you too, but if the process looks too challenging, we would advise using a legitimate antimalware tool instead. Read more »

Outsider Ransomware

Outsider Ransomware

The files encrypted by Outsider Ransomware are not protected, despite the “.protected” extension that is attached to their names. This extension is created for the sole reason of making it clear which files were encrypted. Most file-encrypting threats do this, and they also sometimes rename the files that are encrypted. In that sense, you are lucky because you can, at least, identify the files that were corrupted by the infection. What’s the use? Well, if you have backups, you might be able to check which ones of your files have backup copies, and which ones are lost for good. Unfortunately, decrypting files manually is not possible, and you certainly cannot trust the attackers themselves to free your files. If you have backups, you are in an ideal situation, but do NOT connect to your backup system or service until you have the malicious Outsider Ransomware removed from your operating system. If you keep reading, you will learn about two unique methods that can help you delete this vicious infection. Read more »

FilesLocker-Christmas Ransomware

FilesLocker-Christmas Ransomware

When you want your product to reach a wider audience, you have to make sure that your product “speaks” a number of different languages. Unfortunately, this is also something that malware developers are aware of. For example, FilesLocker-Christmas Ransomware is a malicious infection that targets users who speak English, Russian, and Chinese. If you are one of those users who got infected with this malware, you should do yourself a favor and remove FilesLocker-Christmas Ransomware from your system immediately. For the manual removal instructions, please scroll down to the bottom of this description. Also, do not forget that it is always a good idea to invest in a legitimate antispyware application.

Biger@x-mail.pro Ransomware

Biger@x-mail.pro Ransomware

Biger@x-mail.pro Ransomware is the infection that is responsible for making your files unreadable and for changing their names. While the actual names of the corrupted files are not changed, the infection adds a unique prefix and an extension. Due to this, a file named “document.doc” might look something like this: “email-biger@x-mail.pro.ver-CL 1.5.1.0.id-[numbers].fname-document.doc.doubleoffset.” Without a doubt, that is the kind of a filename that you are bound to notice. Although this prefix and extension combination might seem completely random, in fact, it includes a unique email address that belongs to cyber attackers. Also, it includes a unique ID that is presented to every victim. While you can remove the prefix/extension, you do not need to do that because that will not restore your files. In fact, we cannot provide you with a tool or a key that would decrypt your files. Even though the attackers behind the threat might promise you a decryptor, they are likely to be scamming you. We discuss that, as well as how to delete Biger@x-mail.pro Ransomware, in this report. Read more »
