Reetner Ransomware

The message from Reetner Ransomware may say all your files have been encrypted with a “military-grade encryption algorithm.” However, our research team tested the malicious application themselves and did not notice it would encrypt any data on the infected device. Thus, the malware might be still in the development stage, and the future versions could start enciphering the victim’s data. Consequently, we cannot be sure if it is yet being distributed. Nonetheless, we will discuss the ways it could enter the system and suggest how users may avoid it. If you happen to encounter Reetner Ransomware, we advise you to ...

Unknown Security Breach Popup

If you find a questionable pop-up alert that reads "unknown Security Breach", do not worry about its content and your operating system since the Unknown Security Breach pop-up is a deceptive advertisement aimed at making you call the number given. It is important to remain calm when exposed to such a pop-up warning, because the notification is some fraudsters' product designed to swindle computer users out of their money. In order not experience any inconvenience or money loss, you should disregard the bogus suggestions or encouragement given in the warning and close the window. Usually, it is enough to ...

Striked Ransomware

Striked Ransomware is encryption malware that locks users’ files on compromised machines and then drops a ransom note. It acts as a typical ransomware infection, but it differs from similar threats in one sense – its ransom note does not tell users to pay a ransom, so there is a tiny possibility that it does not need users’ money. Of course, it is more likely that users will be told that they need to pay a ransom in exchange for the decryption key if they contact cyber criminals behind this ransomware infection as instructed. You can try to write an ...

Aubamy Downloader

Aubamy Downloader is a questionable Google Chrome extension that may show up in your browser without your knowledge. In fact, this tool has no use for you at all but it can expose you to potentially harmful third-party web content through modified web search results as it hijacks your default search engine and redirects your searches. If you are exposed to questionable content, there is a chance that you click on corrupt ads and links, which can cause more serious malware infections on your system. It is also possible that this potentially unwanted program (PUP) displays potentially unreliable third-party ...

BrainLag Ransomware

BrainLag Ransomware is a new infection that apparently belongs to the Hidden Tear family. Our research team is still analyzing this threat to learn whether or not it is still in development, and if anything changes, we will update this report. At this point in research, the ransomware does not look developed because even though it can encrypt files, it does not ask for a ransom. Of course, it is possible that this malware was created only to encrypt the files, in which case, it truly is devious. On the other hand, even when victims are introduced to the ...

Search.easyrecipesnow.com

It seems to us the only benefit of keeping Search.easyrecipesnow.com on the browser is having links to cooking web pages, such as Recipes Simplified, Food Network, Yummly, and other. Still, a few popular links you could easily bookmark yourself is hardly worth enough to allow this browser hijacker stay on the system. If you leave Search.easyrecipesnow.com, you will probably use it for surfing the Internet and once you do you may receive suspicious advertising content that might come from malicious web pages. We do not say all of the ads would be dangerous, but some of them could be ...

IPNinja

If you want to hide your cyber footprint by creating a virtual private network (VPN,) then do not install IPNinja because it is a questionable program that does not seem to work. It is not active, and it will not change your IP address. Therefore, we think that it might be a scam or, better yet, it may still be in development. In any case, it is next to useless, so you ought to remove it because it is just a waste of hard drive space. You may get this program accidentally because it is distributed using software bundles which ...

Ransed Ransomware

It is not known yet whether Ransed Ransomware is still in development or if it is a failed attempt to create a new powerful file-encrypting infection. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm that the latter is the case, and it is possible that this ransomware will start terrorizing Windows users soon. At the time of research, the threat could not connect to the C&C server, due to which it could not perform the encryption of files. Also, it was found that a key that possibly could be used for the decryption of the files was placed on the PC. If the ...

Petya+ Ransomware

Petya+ Ransomware is an imitation of a well-known ransomware-type infection Petya Ransomware that used to be actively spread some time ago. It also shows up on users’ PCs without permission and then opens three different windows, the last of which contains a ransom note in full screen, one after the other. It slightly differs from typical ransomware infections, research conducted by malware researchers at pcthreat.com has shown – it does not encrypt a single file. Instead, it only tries to scare users into believing that it is not a joke by showing the ASCII skull and a ransom note ...
