Search.safensearch.com

Search.safensearch.com is a hijacker, and it was created by Pinwid Ltd. This hijacker could hijack the homepage of your browsers – including IE, Firefox, or Chrome – but it is unlikely to replace your regular search provider or modify the New Tab page.

Are you shocked to learn that this strange search tool deserves elimination? You must not be because you have landed on this page while researching this threat, right? ...

Search.rapidserach.com

Search.rapidserach.com is nothing more than yet another browser hijacker that must be avoided at all times and removed immediately if it is ever found up and running on your PC. Ignore any claims that you might come across stating that it could be used to enhance your online activities as it is nothing more than a marketing gimmick used to trick naive Internet users into downloading and installing a program that essentially does the opposite. What this hijacker does, in reality, is it makes undesirable changes to your web browser's default settings, which ultimately disrupt your online experience. Unfortunately, ...

MafiaWare Ransomware

Probably the worst piece of news you may hear today is that if MafiaWare Ransomware has infiltrated your system, you can say goodbye to your documents and images as this malicious program can take them all hostage. Supposedly, the only way for you to get your files back is to pay the demanded ransom fee. However, our experience in this field and user reports also indicate that there is hardly any chance for you to recover your files after this attack. Well, your only chance actually is that you have a backup copy saved on an external drive, such ...

MaskSearch.com

MaskSearch.com is a strange little thing. Although it appears to work as a regular search engine, in reality, it can be regarded as a hijacker, an advertising tool, or even a redirector. Although it uses its own search results page to introduce you to search results, they could be taken from a third-party search provider. Also, our research team does not dismiss the possibility that this hijacker will redirect your search queries to a more popular search engine (e.g., Google Search) to introduce you to its own results. Overall, it does not look like this search tool is capable of ...

Search.searchpackaget.com

Search.searchpackaget.com is a browser hijacker that appears after adding suspicious browser extensions or installing other unreliable applications through bundled setup files. Even though the fact that the threat might modify some of your browser's settings could seem to be quite annoying in itself, you should be more concerned about the fact the software introduces you to an unreliable search engine. As you search the Internet with Search.searchpackaget.com, this tool could display additional third-party advertisements. Such content might come from unknown sources, so interacting with it could be potentially dangerous. Under such circumstances, we recommend eliminating the hijacker with the instructions ...

Spora Ransomware

Spora Ransomware is a sophisticated infection that is in the same league as the infamous Locky Ransomware and Cerber Ransomware. While there are hundreds of ransomware threats that were clearly created by amateurs, this one was developed by someone who knew what they were doing. At this moment, it is impossible to decipher the encryption key used for the encryption of your files, and, according to our researchers, it is highly unlikely that this will become possible in the future. That means that once this infection is in, your files are really locked. At the time of research, this ...

Firecrypt Ransomware

Firecrypt Ransomware might cause users some trouble as the malicious application could damage their most valuable data. If you somehow infected your system with this threat, we advise you to consider its removal. The malware’s developers may try to convince users to purchase a decryption tool from them so you could restore damaged files, but despite what they say there are no reassurances they will send the decryptor. There are always reports from users who have been tricked in such situations, and if you do not want to risk losing your money, it might be best to simply get ...

PadLock Screenlocker

PadLock Screenlocker is a rather confusing computer infection that seems to be rather effective, but it does not provide any information on how the user is supposed to unlock their screen. As you can probably tell from the title, this infection is a screenlocker, so it means that the moment it infects your system, it locks you out of your desktop, virtually blocking you from accessing your files. However, you can climb over this malicious wall without any difficulties, and then all that is left to do is remove PadLock Screenlocker from your computer for good. Once you do ...

Newcityinworld.ru

Newcityinworld.ru has a very forgiving presence. Its interface is clean, and all we are provided with are the search dialog box and some links representing news articles. Is something missing? Right away, you should notice that the website is not supported by legal information (e.g., a Privacy Policy), and that is a red flag. This information is crucial, and if you do not have access to it, you cannot trust the services provided by the search tool. Unfortunately, those who do not pay attention to that kind of stuff become the victims of this browser hijacker. Some give it the ...

2netvl.ru

2netvl.ru is a browser hijacker that only Google Chrome users can encounter. Apparently, the application is not compatible with any other browser. After settling on the computer, the software might set itself as user’s default search provider, homepage, or new tab page. While testing the hijacker, we also noticed it could occasionally redirect users to unfamiliar websites, which might be malicious. Needless to say that if you do not want to endanger your system while using such an unreliable application, it would be best to simply get rid of it. You can slide below this text and delete 2netvl.ru ...
