Proticc Ransomware

There are at least two unique versions of Proticc Ransomware, and you can protect your operating system against both of them using simple security measures. The most important thing to do is to install anti-malware software to protect the operating system against successful malware attacks, as well as to set up an external/online file backup to ensure that copies of most important files are stored outside the computer. If backups exist, you don't need to deal with the loss of files even if malware finds its way in. Needless to say, the situation is different if backups are non-existent ...

WeatherBlink Toolbar

WeatherBlink Toolbar does not look like a threat at first sight, and that is its power. Although we cannot classify it as a malicious infection, some of the features of this application are highly questionable. For one, some users recognize it as a browser hijacker, and that is because it can modify the homepage and search provider settings, depending on the browser you use. Speaking of browsers, if you install the toolbar via Internet Explorer, it is actually installed as a Windows application; whereas, Chrome and Firefox users install it as a browser extension. Due to this, how you ...

Unlock92 Zipper Ransomware

Unlock92 Zipper Ransomware is a new version of a threat called Unlock92 Ransomware. Our researchers are not sure whether the malware is finished yet, because the installers we located did not work correctly. For instance, the malicious program should take user’s files as hostages by placing them in ZIP archives that are supposed to be protected with passwords. Nevertheless, the installers we tested did not put any passwords or archive any data. Yet, the infection showed a ransom note claiming the user’s data is now password protected, and it can be accessed only if the user emails the malicious program’s ...

Lanran Ransomware

Lanran Ransomware is nothing else than new malware encrypting personal files. Judging from the email address indicated in files it drops, it has been developed by malicious software developers living in Russia. Researchers at pcthreat.com do not consider it extremely sophisticated malware, but there is no doubt that it will cause you serious problems if it ever enters your system – a bunch of your files will be encrypted. That is, you could no longer access any of them. Luckily, the ransomware infection does not lock any files that belong to the Windows OS. Instead, it encrypts .dll, .jar, .jpg, ...

Desu Ransomware

Desu Ransomware is not an ordinary infection. It is not even an ordinary ransomware. Instead of just encrypting files and making a demand for a decryptor that could, allegedly restore files, it also encrypts the master boot record. If the MBR is encrypted successfully, there is no way of booting the Windows operating system in a normal manner. Using this obstacle, instead of giving you access to your system, the infection displays a ransom note that, of course, instructs to pay a ransom. At this moment, unfortunately, it is not possible to decrypt files manually even if you remove the ...

Boost PC Pro

Boost PC Pro, also known as Boost PC Pro 2018, is a system optimizer that allegedly can provide Windows users with an “award-winning PC protection.” The program is meant to clean the Windows Registry to improve system’s response time, clean the Startup to boost system’s performance, and to remove browser adware and add-ons to ensure that you can surf the web safely. Although this all sounds great, our research team warns that this allegedly wonderful tool is just another potentially unwanted program (PUP). In fact, we put it into the same category as PC Cleanup 2018, AutoClean Pro 2018, ...

Search.hthecalendar.co

According to our researchers, this might give the application opportunity to inject additional advertisements during the mentioned redirection. Therefore, we suspect the displayed results could contain various advertising material originating from unknown sources. Another thing we learned about Search.hthecalendar.co, is it may hijack the user’s homepage, default search engine, or new tab page, which is why the program is considered to be a browser hijacker. Naturally, more details will be revealed if you continue reading the article. What’s more, users who wish to erase it ...

FreePDFCombiner Toolbar

It seems that Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. is not going to stop – it has recently released new software FreePDFCombiner Toolbar. The application is advertised as a tool for merging multiple PDF documents. We suspect this is the reason users consciously install it on their computers. Of course, not all of them click the Download button consciously. Others find it installed on their PCs without ...
