OnlineMapSearch Toolbar

Why have you downloaded OnlineMapSearch Toolbar? Was it because it offers free driving directions and maps? This toolbar can only provide you with access to sites where such services are offered, and so the usefulness of this extension is truly questionable. It is most likely that Mindspark Interactive Network – the developer – is earning money from promoting these third-party services. The good news is that the links promoted via the toolbar are legitimate. For example, if you click the “Traffic Maps” button at the top, you will be provided with access to wego.here.com, trafficland.com, and waze.com. The “Map ...

NSBlock

NSBlock is most likely a German application that claims to block malicious websites so that you cannot load them for security reasons; however, our tests show otherwise. As a matter of fact, we have found that this software does not really seem to do that, not to mention the fact that it does not even have a User Interface apart from the system tray icon that you can right-click on to have access to some settings. We have labeled this software as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP, because we believe that this application has no use for you ...

Dangerous Ransomware

We want to inform you about a newly found ransomware-type computer infection called Dangerous Ransomware. We have found that it can encrypt your personal files and for this reason alone you have to remove it. Its developers might want you to purchase a decryption key, but from what we have observed it seems that the current build is a test version because it does not drop a ransom note and our analysis of this ransomware has shown that it contains only a fake email address that you are not shown if your PC were to become infected with this ...

Search By myMovie is a suspicious extension that was created by MyAppline. At the moment, this app is advertised at myappline.com, but its installer is available at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/search-by-mymovie/gocbflmhgdckldejmklihkedljphnobo. According to the official information, the add-on can “configure” your default search on the Google Chrome browser to find your favorite movies. Were you aware that your default search engine would be modified by installing this extension? If you were not – and you might have overlooked this if you installed the add-on carelessly – you might be surprised. Even if you have agreed to the changes, you still should classify this ...

EasyFileConvert Toolbar

EasyFileConvert Toolbar might appear to be a useful tool in your browsers since it offers you file conversion and document merging quick-links available on its toolbar as well as in the form of thumbnail links below its featured search box.

Of course, it is not the first time we have encountered this type of tool. In fact, this application comes from a very familiar and well-known, or should we say, infamous family of potentially risky toolbars ...

Lick Ransomware

Lick Ransomware appears to be a clone of a recently created dangerous file-encrypting application called Kirk Ransomware. However, this time the cyber criminals thought of a new way how to convince their victims to install the malware. It appears to be they made the threat available through harmful file-sharing sites where it is offered as a decryptor. Unfortunately, the malicious program has an opposite effect on user’s data, so if you launch this fake tool, it will most likely lock all your files on the computer. In this situation, it would be extremely helpful to have a backup you ...
