BansomQare Manna Ransomware

If it sometimes looks like this ransomware pandemic is about to end, we get the likes of BansomQare Manna Ransomware terrorizing users again. This time, the malicious infection seems to want to scare innocent users into thinking that they have been infected by the notorious WannaCry Ransomware because it uses the same interface design. However, there is nothing in common between these two infections, and you should seriously focus on remove BansomQare Manna Ransomware from your system today. As usual, deleting ransomware programs is not much of a challenge. It is a lot more difficult to restore the encrypted ...

Nurobi.info

If you have started seeing more advertisements than usual, you need to scan your operating system for malware that might be linked to Nurobi.info. This is an adware server that was set up to host ads and serve them via different platforms for a certain fee. Other well-known adware-servers include Traffic-media.co, Ssl.mmtgo.me, Free.dealclicks.us, Abrts.pro, and Blogingt.net. In many cases, adware servers work via specific websites built for the purpose of advertising, but unreliable extensions and malicious applications could employ the adware server as well. Do you know what the term “adware” stands for? It means “advertising-supported software,” which suggests ...

Skyfile Ransomware

Skyfile Ransomware is a ransomware infection that already mercilessly encrypts files even though research conducted by specialists working at pcthreat.com has clearly shown that this malicious application has not been finished yet. It does not demand money from users after locking their pictures, documents, videos, and other files, but users are told that they have to write an email to getsend@tutanota.com, which suggests that cyber criminals behind this ransomware infection might ask money from users later, i.e. when they contact them. Many ransomware victims are ready to send money to the author of the ransomware infection to get their important ...

Pc Cleanup 2018

Pc Cleanup 2018 is an application that you should not have up and running on your operating system. In fact, we advise you to remove it if you ever discover it active on your computer. Doing so is critical because it happens to be one more potentially unwanted program. Malware experts have categorized it in such a way because it works questionably, to put it lightly. It is essential to note that our researchers believe that developers of this application might use this piece of software to make profits from unsuspecting Internet users. Another reason for such classification is ...

Whiterose Ransomware

If you have located _ENCRYPTED_BY.WHITEROSE appended to almost all your files and they have been renamed, Whiterose Ransomware must have infiltrated your computer and locked your files. It was confirmed during research that this ransomware infection is a new threat, but there is one feature it shares with all other ransomware infections – its only purpose is to extract money from users. Do not send a cent to malicious software developers behind this infection even if it has encrypted all your important files because transferring money to cyber criminals does not necessarily mean that files will be unlocked and you ...

Moviesearch.today

Moviesearch.today is basically a webpage that promotes a useless browser extension called Movie Search. Since this tool is potentially risky and unreliable, we have classified this threat source as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and a reference to this extension. It seems that this PUP may affect your main browsers, including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox as well. As a matter of fact, for a few weeks this website and this tool were unavailable for no apparent reason. However, both surfaced again so it is our duty to report what we have found out about this PUP ...

Horros Ransomware

Horros Ransomware is not a program that you want to find up and running on your operating system. That is so because it exhibits harmful and otherwise malicious inner workings. If you are not familiar with devious applications of this classification, you must know that they are designed to lock a massive quantity of data on the affected computer. As you can imagine, having a program that can act in such a way could lead to devastating outcomes, to put it lightly. Since most users infect their PC because they lack knowledge regarding virtual security, we present a few ...

Gamersuperstar

Gamersuperstar appears to be an untrustworthy browser extension targeted at Google Chrome users, although with time it might become compatible with other browsers as well. Our researchers learned the application could show unreliable third-party advertising content which is why they decided the add-on should be classified as adware. The software’s description says that even though Gamersuperstar shows ads, it provides free games to play. However, it seems to us there are lots of web pages that provide games free of charge without displaying annoying advertisements. Therefore, if you hate seeing pop-ups, sponsored links, and other irritating content we advise ...

Mole66 Ransomware

There have been a few Mole Ransowmare versions out there, and it seems that Mole66 Ransomware is also another variation of this malicious infection. Just like with the rest of the ransomware infections, the main reason they terrorize innocent users is money. They will encrypt your files and then say that you must pay ransom to get them back. Computer security experts are strongly against paying any type of ransom, and they maintain that you have to remove Mole66 Ransomware from your system as soon as possible. This is also the main objective of our description: Leading you through the ...

Mac Tweaker

Mac Tweaker is advertised as beneficial software that has been “designed and tested with utmost care to keep your Mac running smooth fast and error free.” The application works on MAC computers only (supports Mac OS X 10.7+), and it has an official website (mactweaker.com), so anyone interested can easily download it from this website. Even though this application does look useful, we suggest that you install a more trustworthy program instead because Mac Tweaker is far from perfect software. According to researchers working at pcthreat.com, it should be classified as a potentially unwanted application (PUP). Therefore, if you have ...
