cyberwars@qq.com Ransomware

It looks like there is no end to file-encrypting threats from the Crysis/Dharma Ransomware family as we came across yet another new version called cyberwars@qq.com Ransomware. Same as other variants before it, the malware encrypts user’s files and marks them with a unique second extension created from three parts, e.g., .id-[A4875963].[cyberwars@qq.com].war. Also, it should display a message claiming the user has to email the hackers behind the threat and pay for decryption if they want to get their data back. The bad news is that there are no guarantees cyberwars@qq.com Ransomware’s developers will hold on to their end of the ...

DNSMessenger

If you do not want to fall victim to DNSMessenger, DO NOT open spam emails and the files attached to them. This fileless bot is spread using a misleading message with a file that is, allegedly, protected by McAfee, a well-known security tool. While nothing happens if the user opens the email message, if they enable the file as instructed, malware can be executed. A fileless bot is dropped, and it can use DNS records from encoded domains to execute malicious commands. Virtually any command could be executed, and that makes the attackers pretty much unpredictable. At the time of ...

BROOM PC Cleaner

BROOM PC Cleaner might seem like a legitimate and even beneficial program, but our research team warns that it is not so great. On the contrary, one of the files downloaded and used by this potentially unwanted program (PUP) can be recognized as a Trojan. Since this file runs along with other files of the PUP, you might consider it to be an integral part of the suspicious system optimizer; however, in reality, it contains functions that do not affect the functionality of the PUP. Even if you decide to put that aside, the program itself is neither helpful nor ...

Critical Warning 888-412-7389

So, you cannot access your Windows operating system, and Critical Warning 888-412-7389 window showed up. What does that mean? That certainly does NOT mean that your operating system was blocked due to suspicious activity, which is the claim made using the message inside the screen-locking window. That means that your operating system was affected by malware that, most likely, slithered in without any warning. According to our research team, it might be impossible to remove Critical Warning 888-412-7389 malware in normal mode, but it is possible to get rid of it. If you continue reading, you will learn more ...

WannaOof Ransomware

You can identify the malicious WannaOof Ransomware by the “.oof” extension attached to your personal files. If this extension is attached, the files cannot be opened because they are encrypted. The extension itself does not have an important role, and it is created only to mark the affected files. The real problem lies within the data of the files because it is changed in a way so that it could be read only using a special decryptor. This technology was created to help people protect ...

.Nano Ransomware File Extension

If you find the .Nano Ransomware File Extension attached to your personal files, your Windows operating system was hit by dangerous malware. This malware encrypts files and then delivers a message from cyber criminals, who want you to pay a ransom. Although that is not revealed initially, if the victim of the infection contacted the criminals as instructed, they would be asked to pay a ransom. Contacting attackers and paying money to get the files decrypted is very risky. By emailing the attackers, you would be disclosing your personal email address, and they could use it to flood you ...

microsoftxyber@hackindex.com Screen Locker

microsoftxyber@hackindex.com Screen Locker displays a blue borderless window that accuses of using a pirated Windows copy. We believe the hackers behind the threat might try to trick users into paying for a license they do not need or revealing their product key to them. Fortunately, the warning contains grammar mistakes, which should suggest that the notification could be fake. Needless to say, the answer is yes, the alert is fake, as it does not come from your operating system. Therefore, if you see the window displayed by microsoftxyber@hackindex.com Screen Locker, you should not believe any word it says. Instead, we ...

yoursalvations@protonmail.ch Ransomware

Malware comes in all forms and sizes, and if we had to evaluate yoursalvations@protonmail.ch Ransomware, we would say that this threat is pretty massive if you think about the scale of the attack. When this malware slithers in, it goes after personal files, and if your Windows operating system is full of photos and documents, the implications can be very serious. Once files are encrypted – which means that their data is changed to ensure that they can be read only using a decryptor – they cannot be opened using any program. A free decryptor that would decode the ...
