Adonis Ransomware

We have recently come across a ransomware-type computer infection called Adonis Ransomware that was supposedly set to encrypt your files but does not really do that. Therefore, you can remove it without hesitation because you will not have to deal with any consequences. The word Adonis is a Greek borrowing from the Canaanite language meaning “lord.” The choice of name is probably accidental but is unique, nevertheless. Its creators want you to pay a ransom to recover your files, never mind ...

Aleta Ransomware

The malicious Aleta Ransomware can slither into your operating system without any warning. When it does, it is quick to encrypt files with such extensions as .bat, .bin, .bmp, .cab, .dat, .dll, .exe, .GRL, .ini, .lnk, .log, .msi, .png, .rbs, .sdb, .tmp, .vsch, .xml, and .zip. Besides encrypting these files, the infection also changes their names by adding the “.[darkwaiderr@cock.li].aleta” extension at the end. In fact, that is a good thing because that makes it easier to see which files were encrypted. Unfortunately, once the files are encrypted, there is not much that can be done, even if you ...
