Search.searchtpg.com

Search.searchtpg.com is not one of those reputable search providers even though it looks like a legitimate search tool, so if you ever find it set as your homepage, i.e., it is opened to you each time you launch your web browser, you should remove it right away. It is considered to be untrustworthy not only because the majority of users find it set on their web browsers without their knowledge. The main reason specialists do not call it a reputable search tool is the fact that it might show untrustworthy search results and expose users to potential threats. Of ...

Brality

Brality is yet another tool that makes really no sense to have on your computer since it has no beneficial function and it might well put your computer at risk. This new application only works in Google Chrome. We have classified it as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP, but it may also pass for a browser hijacker as it can change your default search provider setting. Having this PUP in your browser can indicate that you had not done your research before installing it or you installed it unknowingly, which brings us to the bigger system security issue. Namely, ...

Zip Ransomware

The most important thing when you get infected with the likes of Zip Ransomware is not to panic. Cyber criminals who create and distribute such infections rely on panic a lot. When users panic, they are more likely to do something rash, like giving their money away to these criminals. Of course, here you might say that paying the ransom is probably the only way to get your files back, but that is just an excuse. You should remove Zip Ransomware from your system, and then look for other methods to restore your files. Whatever you do, you should ...

Gibon Ransomware

Researchers at pcthreat.com have come across new crypto-malware recently. It is called Gibon Ransomware. It was definitely not one of those prevalent infections at the time of writing, but, according to our specialists, this might change soon because it is available in the black market and can be purchased by anyone. It is a newly-discovered infection, but it does not differ much from older threats. It has also been developed seeking to obtain money from users easier. Also, it locks files it finds stored on the affected computer the first thing following the successful entrance. There are two symptoms ...

Gdipfontcachev1.dat

When you look at the name Gdipfontcachev1.dat, it might look that we are about to deal with something malicious, but this is actually a legitimate file. The file itself is not dangerous at all, although computer security researchers point out that sometimes it can be used by malicious programs. So if you need to remove anything, it is not the Gdipfontcachev1.dat file itself, but the program that employs it. The best way to find out whether you have a malicious program on your computer is to scan your PC with a legitimate antispyware tool. You might be surprised to ...

PlayCenter Search

PlayCenter Search is a questionable piece of software that should not be active on your personal computer. We advise you to refrain and delete this application because it has been classified as one more potentially unwanted program. Our research team has assigned such category because this application functions in an intrusive and otherwise suspicious manner. As it turns out, it can make unwanted changes to your browser's default settings without any notification or authorization. Unfortunately, these alterations are not positive, and in turn, surfing the web will become a much more bothersome experience than you might think. It is also ...

Kerkoporta Ransomware

If you live in Greece, you need to be careful about a new infection called Kerkoporta Ransomware (or κερκόπορτα Ransomware). This malware was not unleashed at the time of research, but it is believed that it could be used to encrypt files on vulnerable Windows operating systems pretty soon. It is crucial that you are careful when opening spam emails – which you should not do, – downloading software, interacting with random ads and pop-ups, and doing other things that could open up security backdoors. It is most important that you secure your operating system and your files. It is ...

Losers Ransomware

The Losers ransomware is a computer threat that is programmed to encrypt files so that the authors of the infection could demand for a release fee, or a so-called ransom. Fortunately, the threat fails to encrypt files, which would be done by using the AES encryption algorithm. Nevertheless, even when a threat does not succeed in data encryption, that does not mean that you should not take any measures. The threat must be removed to prevent further infections and system malfunctions. If your computer has been attacked by a piece of ransomware that suggests that the machine could beaffected, ...

Speedomizer

Speedomizer is a potentially unwanted program that claims to be providing powerful and easy to use features. However, it seems to us it is much easier and faster to type “test internet speed” in your preferred search engine’s search box and use one of the online tools suggested on the search results. This way you could check your Internet speed without having to install any doubtful applications. One of the reasons why our specialists are against its usage is because this potentially unwanted program may gather information about the user’s browsing habits or other anonymous data that might be later ...
