VegaLocker Ransomware

VegaLocker Ransomware is most likely targeted at users who speak Russian, as the messages it displays, seem to be written only in the mentioned language. It is a file-encrypting threat that locks files to extort money from the infected machine’s owner. Usually, users who come across such malicious applications launch their installers accidentally and so infect the system without even realizing it. Nonetheless, further in the article, we will explain how such infections can be spread and what you should do to avoid it in the future. Also, our report will talk about the threat’s working manner and its ...

One Click Booster

One Click Booster is a PC optimizer that is said was designed “to keep your PCs running smooth, fast and error free.” Instead of trusting the software’s descriptions, it is wiser to test it and see it for yourself what it is capable of. Unfortunately, the application’s trial version does not allow fixing issues for free after it scans the system, so it is difficult to say how beneficial it might be. Another thing you should know is that the tool falls under the category of potentially unwanted programs also called PUPs. It does not mean it is malicious, ...

Severe Weather Check

Severe Weather Check is supposed to be helpful, but, instead, it is mysterious, suspicious, and, most likely, unreliable. According to our researchers, this potentially unwanted program (PUP) is introduced to Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox users at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/severe-weather-check/heddedcjpankenbhoccbjdhkadmaagnn and severeweathercheck.com. The installer, needless to say, is free, and the information offered by developers suggests that the extension can present trustworthy weather-related information and a web search tool. Basically, the program sounds pretty harmless and even beneficial, which is why it is no surprise that many Chrome and Firefox users have downloaded it already. If you are thinking about doing the ...

Jupstb Ransomware

Jupstb Ransomware is a vicious file-encrypting infection that targets users’ personal files. The reason the malware is after the user’s private data is that it could be irreplaceable or in other words valuable to the victim. Consequently, the user might be willing to pay a ransom for a chance to get it back. The ransom note displayed by this malicious application does not say anything about paying the ransom and getting decryption tools in return. Nonetheless, it explains how to contact the threat’s developers, and we are almost entirely sure they should state their demands soon after the victim ...

CommentsPlus

CommentsPlus is meant to offer you this unique and interesting service, but, according to our research team, it is just another PUP (potentially unwanted program) that does not deserve your attention at all. At the time of research, it was compatible with Google Chrome only, and it is likely to stay that way. Nonetheless, if you find it installed on a different web browser, we are ready to assist you with removal. Just post a comment below with your questions or concerns. In general, deleting CommentsPlus is not a problematic task, and you should be able to get rid ...

CrazyCrypt Ransomware

If CrazyCrypt Ransomware invades your Windows system and encrypts your personal files (e.g., photos and documents), it instructs you to pay a ransom within 72 hours. Although cyber attackers want you to believe that this is the only option you’ve got, our research team warns that it is very unlikely that you would get a decryptor if you fulfilled the attackers’ demands. Unfortunately, at the time of research, it was not possible to decrypt ...

.PC-FunHACKED!-Hello Ransomware

There are ransomware programs that can be easily decrypted and programs that make you lose any hope of getting your files back. .PC-FunHACKED!-Hello Ransomware is the former, but even if we can get the public decryption tool for this infection, it doesn’t mean that it is okay to postpone the task of removing .PC-FunHACKED!-Hello Ransomware from your system for later. This program is quite obnoxious and intrusive, so the sooner you delete it from your computer, the better. To find out more about this program and how to protect yourself from a ransomware infection, please continue reading this entry. Perhaps ...

W1F1SN1FF3R Ransomware

There are many ransomware infections that can harm and damage the files, but the mysterious W1F1SN1FF3R Ransomware is not one of those infections; at least, not yet. This threat attacks the system and launches a window that tries to convince the victim to send money to appropriate Bitcoin and Ether wallets. The thing is, however, that your files are fine, and the infection’s claims that they are deleted are completely bogus. Without a doubt, this infection is used to scam you, and you do not want to fall for it. That is why whenever you face a threat that ...

Jigsaw Ransomware (.fun extension)

The malicious Jigsaw Ransomware (.fun extension) is a new variant of a well known infection that goes by the same name. While we have seen the “.fun” extension attached to the files corrupted by this malware before, according to our research, the ransom note has been overhauled. Most likely, you will learn that this malicious infection got into your operating system only after the ransom note (shown via a window) is displayed. Before that, the threat is stealthy and silent, and you are not supposed to uncover it. The worst part is that you are likely to be included ...
