Alpha Ransomware

Alpha Ransomware is a very dangerous computer infection that might become your worst nightmare if it ever enters your computer. Researchers at pcthreat.com have closely inspected this threat and have found that it has been created by cyber criminals who are responsible for developing Cerber Ransomware (this infection was popular some time ago), which suggests that they share similarities. It is evident that they both lock files and seek to extort money from users; however, what users do not see is that there are similarities in the source codes of these two ransomware infections too. Our researchers know everything about ...

FastCompress-Zip

FastCompress-Zip is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that might enter your computer in software packages. This program is associated with a browser hijacker, and as such, it falls into the pool of applications that are not recommended to keep in your system. Luckily, you can uninstall the application via Control Panel, and there will be no leftover files left. On the other hand, if you think that there might be more unwanted apps on-board, you should seriously consider investing in a legitimate antispyware tool that would scan your PC and give you the exact diagnosis. Do what you need to ...

Kuaizip

Kuaizip is a file archiver that is meant to help you combine multiple files into one archive file that is easier to store or share. Although this program does work, our researchers recommend deleting it from your operating system, especially if you have downloaded it by accident, without meaning to install it in the first place. It appears that this program is targeted at users in the Chinese market because it is represented in Chinese via kuaizip.com and kpzip.com websites. These websites are automatically blocked by Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers, which, of course, is a red flag. ...

Wildfire Ransomware

Wildfire Ransomware is one of the new ransomware infections that might enter your system without permission one day if you are not careful. If it happens, you will quickly notice that important files are locked and contain the .wflx filename extension. Also, you might notice that your Desktop Wallpaper has been changed too. Finally, you will detect new files, e.g. HOW_TO_UNLOCK_FILES_README_([Unique ID]).html and HOW_TO_UNLOCK_FILES_README_([Unique ID]).txt here and there. If you open any of them, you will find the text explaining what has happened to files as well. Even though you will not unlock your personal files by simply removing Wildfire ...

Holycrypt Ransomware

Holycrypt Ransomware is yet another ransomware designed to encrypt your files and demand that you pay a ransom for the decryption key. We want to inform you that it is currently a beta so it is still under development and some of its functions might not work well or at all for that matter. Therefore, we recommend that you remove it instead of paying the ransom because you might not receive the decryption key after you make the payment. This article contains an analysis of Holycrypt Ransomware in which we will determine its dissemination channels, functions, and removal. Our research has ...

VirLock Ransomware

If you see a message covering the entire Desktop every time you turn on your computer, it is very likely that you have VirLock Ransomware installed on your system. Like other ransomware infections, this threat enters computers because it seeks to extort money from users; however, it is rather unique in a sense that it not only encrypts files and puts a screen-locking message on Desktop, but also tries to scare users into transferring the required money by saying that a law enforcement agency has detected pirated software on their computers and now, as a result, they must pay the ...

ContentPush

A program such as ContentPush is supposed to be useful, but it is not. Its developers use it to make money, and that is its only purpose. After testing this application, we have classified it as a potentially unwanted program because it offers nothing of value to the end-user, so we suggest that you remove it from your PC. This program is set to render an advertising window on the right side of the screen and load its promoted links. We did not find the links to be dangerous, but they are invasive and will probably obstruct your computing experience. This ...

Pokémon GO Security Concerns

When you suddenly have an extremely popular mobile game pop up, it is no surprise that it also gives rise to multiple concerns and even conspiracy theories. Yes, you have guessed it right. We are tackling Pokémon GO today. The hugely popular augmented-reality game that urges you to go out and catch ‘em all! It was released only last week, but even so, reports suggest that in the United States, the application has surpassed Twitter and Tinder as the most-downloaded app. There are many reasons behind the game’s popularity, but we are not going to discuss them here. Our main ...

Findizer

Findizer is a new application that is targeted at people who do shopping online. As the entire application is in French, there is no doubt that the developer has created it for French-speaking users only. At the time of writing, this piece of software is not very popular. Only 2722 users have installed it from the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/application-findizer/apbbnlboenllhnddfpokmeeiinhhhmmc?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog). Of course, some people have also downloaded it from findizer.fr, which is known to be its official website; however, we are still sure that it is not a very prevalent application. It is probably because it is targeted at a ...

Search.searchtrmypa.com

We have yet again discovered a new browser hijacker and yet again it comes from the developer that labels its hijackers with the “by SaferBrowser” logo. Unfortunately, there is nothing safe about this hijacker and we suggest that you remove it from your computer as soon as you can because it can jeopardize its security. We have categorized Search.searchtrmypa.com as a browser hijacker because of its malicious distribution method that involves inserting it into your browser without your knowledge or authorization. It is set to enter your computer in secret and replace your web browser’s homepage address and other search-related ...
