FoxRansom Ransomware

FoxRansom Ransomware

FoxRansom Ransomware is a threat our specialists have discovered only recently. It might make your files inaccessible even though it did not lock personal data at the time of research, they say. This might happen if the ransomware infection is ever updated. You cannot keep malware active on your system no matter which version of it you encounter because the presence of bad software might result in the entrance of other threats and other privacy and security-related problems. Therefore, you must erase FoxRansom Ransomware from your system immediately after having discovered it active on your computer. It seems that this threat is still in development, specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say. As mentioned, it did not encrypt files at the time of analysis. Second, it drops a ransom note that does not demand money, which is quite surprising because ransomware-type infections are mainly used to steal money from users. Since FoxRansom Ransomware does not seem to be sophisticated malware, you should not find its removal complicated, especially if you let our removal guide help you. Read more »

WannCrypto V6 Ransomware

WannCrypto V6 Ransomware

A new infection has been developed. At first glance, WannCrypto V6 Ransomware looked like a real threat, but it turned out that it does not do anything malicious. Our malware researchers say that it has probably been released just for fun. It was not even distributed at the time of research, so it is not very likely that you will ever encounter it. Theoretically, cyber criminals might update this infection and start spreading it with the intention of obtaining money from users, so you still cannot keep your system unprotected. If it ever happens that you end up with WannCrypto V6 Ransomware, which is not likely to happen, you should remove the ransomware infection from your computer no matter it works properly or not. If nothing changes, you could eliminate it by simply deleting the malicious file you have launched, i.e. the ransomware launcher.

KEYPASS Ransomware

KEYPASS Ransomware

There are so many file-encryptors that their creators are now creating and applying new features. The malicious KEYPASS Ransomware is a perfect example of that. Although it is primarily a file-encrypting and ransom-demanding threat – just like most ransomware – it also could work as spyware because it has the functionality of a keylogger. Needless to say, this makes an already intimidating infection a real danger. It is not yet clear what kind of information the infection might attempt to record, but it is known that KEYPASS Ransomware removes itself after the encryption of files, and so it is unlikely that it would lurk on the computer for a long time just to record keystrokes in the hopes of obtaining credit card information, login data, or other sensitive details. All in all, you do not want to let your guard down. It is possible that you are in danger, and you want to make sure that every single malicious component is deleted successfully. First, scan your operating system to see what is going on. Read more »

PooleZoor Ransomware

PooleZoor Ransomware

PooleZoor Ransomware shows a ransom note asking to pay 10,000,000 Riyal. The sum seems ridiculous, especially when it is asked for decrypting files located on the Desktop folder alone. The malware does not encrypt any other data than the files available on the user’s Desktop directory. No doubt, there might be users who keep a lot of important files there, but for some users, it could be a few pictures, perhaps documents with details of their online purchases, etc. What we are trying to say is there is a chance the malicious application may not encipher any data that would be worth paying a ransom for. However, we do not think there was some mistake. The simplest explanation would be PooleZoor Ransomware could be just a test version, and the next release might damage more files and ask for a more reasonable sum to pay. For more information about it, we urge you to read our full article. Also, should you need deletion instructions, keep it in mind you can find them at the end of this text. Read more »

mirey@tutanota.com Ransomware

mirey@tutanota.com Ransomware might belong to the Cryptconsole Ransomware family: a group of malicious applications coded in C# on Microsoft .NET framework. Another thing they have in common is they might open a command prompt window while they encipher files located on the infected computer. Our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com say closing it could make the malware stop encrypting user’s data, so it is best to close this window the moment you notice it. Unfortunately, users who have never seen a ransomware application before may not realize what is happening or imagine what the consequences might be. If you want to get to know mirey@tutanota.com Ransomware better, we recommend reading our full article.

Killrabbit Ransomware

Killrabbit Ransomware is another malicious file-encrypting program designed to harm files the user may consider to be valuable. Thus, receiving this threat could mean you might lose all your private data located on the computer. Of course, if you have a backup, there should be no problem to restore files. The malware’s developers may suggest their help in recovering enciphered data too, but we would not recommend taking it. It is most likely the hackers’ services would cost you, and what is even worse there are no guarantees when dealing with cybercriminals. What we mean is you could end up being scammed. If you do not want to risk it, we encourage you to slide below the article and remove Killrabbit Ransomware while using the manual deletion instructions we placed below the text.

Zoldon Ransomware

Zoldon Ransomware

Do you know what a file-encryptor is? It is an infection that encrypts files. Zoldon Ransomware is not an infection capable of doing that, although it ties to trick victims into thinking that it is. At best, it is a screen-locker, but it fails at that also. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers, it is possible to close the window via the Task Bar or the Task Manager to inspect the allegedly corrupted files. This step is exceptionally important because you want to see what damage was or was not done before you pay attention to the demands that cyber criminals have. If you check your files, it should become obvious very quickly that your personal files are fine and that you do not need to worry about permanent encryption. That being said, even if your files are not encrypted, you want to remove malware that has invaded your operating system. We have a few useful tips for you that will help delete Zoldon Ransomware from the Windows operating system with ease. Read more »

Servicedeskpay@protonmail.com Ransomware

Servicedeskpay@protonmail.com Ransomware

Ransomware does not stop, and ransomware creators do not sleep. The newest infection to join the ever-growing family is Servicedeskpay@protonmail.com Ransomware, and it is just as bad as it sounds. While there are quite a few fake file-encryptors circulating the web these days – and that is because even the amateurs are now trying to build ransomware – this one is not fake. In fact, it is so real that it will encrypt every single personal file if it stored in the right place. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, the infection does not corrupt system files, but audio, video, image, and text files are a prime target. Once encrypted, these files are paralyzed, so to speak. You cannot open them, and you cannot decrypt them using regular free decryptors. Maybe a reliable decryptor will be created in the future, but, for the time being, it does not exist, and that means that you have nowhere to go with your problem. Surely, the removal of the infection is on your mind, but you might be preoccupied with the fact that your files might be lost. Despite your anguish, it is important to delete Servicedeskpay@protonmail.com Ransomware as soon as possible, and you can learn how to achieve that by reading this report. Read more »
