Search.searchm3f.com

It feels like Polarity Technologies Ltd. can come out with a new featured search page like Search.searchm3f.com every other day. This team is responsible for dozens of browser hijackers like Search.searchgmfs.com and Search.searchws.com, which can show up in your browsers without even your intention. This new hijacker is very similar to all other previous ones as it offers you a couple of official forms on a fake toolbar and a search engine, of course. We are here to tell you that such a tool is totally unnecessary as you can always bookmark any page you would like to reach ...

Rapid Ransomware

Rapid Ransomware is a dangerous threat that can encrypt even most personal files that you have stored on your computer. If these files are not backed up before the invasion of the ransomware, they are doomed. Decrypting them manually is not possible, and a tool that could do it for you does not exist at the moment either. The creator of this infection is the only one who has the power to decrypt files because they should have the decryption key. If you expect them to give you this key, you are very wrong. Cyber criminals are not known for ...

filmsNow Search

filmsNow Search is advertised as “the best source for films, TV and celebrity content” in the Chrome Web Store, which suggests that it is a beneficial application; however, it is not what it seems to be, we can assure you, so if you still consider whether you should install it on your system or not, we suggest that you install a more trustworthy application instead because filmsNow Search is not a fully trustworthy piece of software. It is known to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP). If you want to find more about it, you should read the rest ...

KoreanLocker Ransomware

KoreanLocker Ransomware is not an infection you want to find on your Windows operating system. While we are sure you do not want to face any kind of malware, this infection is on another level. When it slithers in, it immediately encrypts files, and it does that using a complicated algorithm to ensure that no one can crack the code by themselves. This is meant to push the victim into a corner and force them to pay a ransom for the alleged decryption key. Would you see this key after you paid the ransom? That is, unfortunately, highly unlikely, ...

Search.searchgmfs.com

Search.searchgmfs.com is an absolutely redundant featured search site again from the notorious Polarity team. While this threat cannot really be called dangerous, it can still present to you potentially unreliable third-party advertisements and links. We have seen similar as well as identical threats in this family in the past months emerging, including Search.hmylocaltransit.co and Search.searchwmtn.com. We have categorized this malware infection as a browser hijacker as it can change your homepage settings in the affected browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer). The problem is that this hijacker is not spread officially, so if you find it on ...

CryptWalker Ransomware

What is your initial thought when you first discover CryptWalker Ransomware? Maybe you think that this malicious threat is just posing as a file encryptor? Maybe you are ready to do whatever you are instructed to do just to get your files decrypted? Whatever the case is, your next move must be weighted before performed because your virtual security and financial stability might depend on it. If you think that the only thing you can do is pay the ransom that the infection requests, you are mistaken. According to our research, the files encrypted by the malicious ransomware would ...

AB Stealer

nJoySport Search

If you find nJoySport Search in your Google Chrome browser, it is quite possible that you have installed a freeware bundle recently. This potentially unwanted program, or PUP, can sneak onto your computer even without your realizing it. In all fairness, we need to mention that it is also possible to install it officially. However, we believe that more users let this potential threat enter their computer under questionable circumstances. This PUP can change your default search provider, your homepage, and new tab settings as well. Fortunately, it only affects your Google Chrome browser, but it might spy on ...

Pink Lemonade Extension

Pink Lemonade Extension is probably one of the most useless browser extensions we have ever seen. This tool only works under Google Chrome. It seems to be most popular in Brazil, India, and Chile. Since we cannot claim that this extension means direct danger of any kind to you or to your computer, we have labeled it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). As a matter of fact, it is not yet known what the real purpose of this PUP is since it simply redirects you to a webpage with the recipe of, well, pink lemonade. Of course, this ...

5finder.com

5finder.com is a search engine that offers something every Google Chrome user might be interested in: A safe browsing experience. Although this tool is meant to filter search results and deliver only those that are “secure,” our research team identifies this search engine and the extension that introduces it as potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). It does not matter how this software enters your Google Chrome browser. What matters is that using it is not beneficial. If you install this tool, you might be tricked into thinking that you are safe online, but that is not the case. First and ...
