Patagonia92@tutanota.com Ransomware

Patagonia92@tutanota.com Ransomware might appear to be a somewhat problematic malicious application. Our researchers say the infection does not append any extension to its encrypted files, which means its victims could not realize what has happened for quite some time. Apparently, even the ransom note cannot be opened right away since it does not have any extension and the user has to edit its title first. If you have encountered this threat, we encourage you to keep reading our report. Further, in it, we will explain the malicious application’s working manner, tell you how to open the ransom note it ...

ibrowsersearch.com

ibrowsersearch.com is a search provider that you might find set as your new default search provider on all your web browsers.

As long as you keep it set, you will be forced to perform web searches using it – it will load ...

Searchdims.network

Searchdims.network appears to be a simple search engine that should allow the user to surf the Internet. So far, it does not look like the application could be potentially dangerous and still our researchers do not think it can be trusted. It was noticed the tool employs google.com to gather and display the results, which instantly raises a question why should anyone use it when they can go straight to google.com? We believe the search engine’s creators might have designed it to collect user information and generate revenue from advertising. Even though we did not notice any ads while ...

ThePresidentSays Toolbar

AnimusLocker Ransomware

AnimusLocker Ransomware is no doubt a vicious threat as it may damage the files located on the computer it infects and demand a ransom to pay in exchange for unlocking such data. Our researchers say the tone of the ransom note left behind by the malware might sound somewhat friendly, but users should not forget their files were locked illegally and in reality, there are no guarantees the hackers who wrote it would do as they say. In other words, if you decide to trust the malicious application’s developers, you might get scammed and lose not only your files ...
