If you happen to encounter .crypted034 Ransomware, you probably know what to expect from it, as it is your average ransomware infection that behaves like any other program from the same category.

The point is that there is no need to pay money for something this infection probably cannot even deliver. Simply remove .crypted034 Ransomware from your system immediately, and then make sure that you do not get infected by a similar intruder again. Read more »

WebCobra

WebCobra is not an infection you want entering your operating system. Even though it is unlikely to create a mess on its own, it can download other malicious programs, and these could be extremely dangerous. While there is a possibility that virtually any file could be downloaded using this downloader, at the time of research, its main task was to drop a crypto-currency miner. Two unique miners are linked to the threat, and which one is dropped onto a specific Windows operating system, depends on the architecture of that system. On the x86 architecture, the infection drops Cryptonight. On the x64 architecture, it drops Claymore’s Zcash. Both of these are silent crypto-currency miners that can help cyber criminals obtain crypto-currency. Virtually, any computer could be used for the process. Then why don’t criminals use their own computers? Crypto-currency mining requires a lot of energy, which means that the electrical bill can get very high. Basically, miners are energy stealers, and the sooner you delete WebCobra, Cryptonight, and Claymore’s Zcash – the better. Read more »

Delphimorix Red Ransomware

Delphimorix Red Ransomware

Delphimorix Red Ransomware is a tremendously vicious infection, and it looks like it was created for the sole purpose of destroying Windows users’ files. Unlike most threats of this kind, it appears that it was not created to make any money for the attackers. Of course, a ransom price is set, but it is ridiculous. At the time of research, it was set at 999,999.5 Bitcoin, which is around 8,000,000,000 US Dollars. Needless to say, this is not the kind of money that anyone would be willing to give. Even multibillion dollar companies and governments could not cough up that much. It seems like the attackers just entered a random number without even expecting the ransom to be paid. Truth be told, even if the ransom was $10, we would not recommend paying it. Nonetheless, the risk would be much smaller. Even though there might be no point in discussing the demands of cyber criminals, we certainly need to discuss the removal of Delphimorix Red Ransomware. If you continue reading, you will learn how to delete this threat. Read more »

Cheetah Ransomware

Cheetah Ransomware

The smallest security backdoor could help the malicious Cheetah Ransomware slither into your operating system, which is why it is crucial that you do not open these backdoors. First and foremost, you want to make sure that your operating system is secured reliably, and we recommend employing anti-malware software to ensure that. Next, you want to make sure that all security updates are installed. These updates might include patches for existing vulnerabilities, and you do NOT want to skip those. Finally, you have to evaluate your own activity. Do you open random links, download files without knowing much about them, or visit websites that you are not familiar with? If you do, your chances of letting in malware are pretty high. Hopefully, you think about this once you remove Cheetah Ransomware from your operating system. This is not the only threat in the world, and it is not even the worst kind. If you do not want to face threats and have to delete them in the future, you must be cautious. Read more »

Cryptre Ransomware

Just remove Cryptre Ransomware with a powerful antispyware program right now, and be sure to secure your computer against similar intruders in the future. Read more »

ABANTES Ransomware

ABANTES Ransomware

ABANTES Ransomware is based on an open-source threat known as Hidden-Tear Ransomware. Unlike most of the other file-encrypting applications created with Hidden-Tear Ransomware’s code, the malware does not demand a ransom. It looks as if the hackers created the threat for no other reason except to damage the infected computer’s system and the victim’s private files. Afterward, the malware may show an annoying message that tells victims not to kill any processes, delete the malware, or use antimalware tools. The note claims that if the user does not stick with the rules, his computer “will die.” However, it might not matter if you keep with the malware’s rules or not. If the threat rewrites the computer’s MBR (Master Boot Record), you might be forced to reinstall Windows. Otherwise, you might be able to get rid of it with a reputable antimalware tool or the deletion instructions placed below. Read more »

Kiratos Ransomware

Kiratos Ransomware

Kiratos Ransomware is a threat that appends the .kiratos extension to the files it encrypts. It does not target system data, which means the computer should run more or less the same as always except the user might be unable to open files that have the mentioned extension. Next to locked data, victims should also notice text documents (_readme.txt) with instructions on what to do to decrypt the affected files. To be more precise, the hackers should ask to contact and pay them 490 or 980 US dollars. Needless to say, putting up with such demands could be extremely risky, and if you do not wish to do so, you should ignore ransom notes. Since the malware can restart with the operating system and possibly encrypt new data, we advise removing Kiratos Ransomware from the device. To eliminate it manually, you should complete the steps located below. For more information on it, we invite you to read the rest of this report. Read more »

Guvara Ransomware

Guvara Ransomware

You cannot be careless when opening spam emails because Guvara Ransomware and many other threats could hide within them. Cyber criminals are smart, and they know what kinds of subject lines and messages can lure in more gullible people. If they allow the malicious threat in, it can start corrupting files almost immediately. Unfortunately, if the victim does not realize that malware has invaded and delete the launcher right there and then, they are unlikely to stop the attack in time. After files are encrypted, the infection reveals itself using an added extension (“.guvara”), as well as a text file, which we discuss further in the report. Unfortunately, the recovery of files is unlikely to be possible, and you cannot save them even by deleting Guvara Ransomware. Obviously, it is necessary to remove this malware anyway, and we recommend taking care of that as soon as possible. Read more »

Pig4444 Ransomware

Pig4444 Ransomware

Pig4444 Ransomware is a vicious threat that encrypts all data on the victim’s device and then drops a ransom note asking to pay for its decryption. The problem is the victim might be unable to view the ransom note since the malware damages even system files, which could stop the computer from working correctly. Consequently, we are not sure whether the malicious application was created to ruin someone’s system on purpose or if the hackers made a mistake. If you are interested in learning more about Pig4444 Ransomware, you should read the rest of this article. Also, if you have other questions about it, keep in mind there is a comments section below the text where you can leave us a message. Read more »
