Helponyon.info Ransomware

Helponyon.info Ransomware is a malicious application which illegally slithers onto computers and then encrypts files by adding a new filename extension .[help@onyon.info].master to all encrypted files. It is a version of Master Ransomware, and it does not differ much from the previous version of this ransomware infection – it only appends a new extension to those files it encrypts. Since this infection changes an email address daily, we are sure we will write about versions using other emails in the future. No matter which version of this nasty infection you encounter, you must remove it from your computer as ...

News1free.org

News1free.org is a questionable news and search website that mainly targets Russian-speaking countries. Although it is a relatively new search page that emerged at the beginning of May, 2017, we cannot say it is really new in the sense that it is indeed the clone of about two dozen previous malware infections, including 2infoblog.com/news/, 3bloginfo.com/news/, and browser-net.net/news/. These all belong to the category of browser hijackers because they can modify your browser settings to come up as your home page and new tab page. This infection can sneak onto your computer without your knowledge and expose you to potentially ...

ScreenUp

ScreenUp is an application you can take screenshots with, but despite the fact it works as it is supposed to our researchers find it rather suspicious. In fact, after testing the software, it was decided to classify it as a potentially unwanted program. What raises a suspicion is the way the application works on the system. Apparently, the tool does not install itself but merely runs after its launcher is opened. Also, while it is running, it may collect various anonymous information about the user’s browsing habits, the device he is using, and so on. Unfortunately, there are reasons ...
