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 ...

Its initiators were targeting popular Israeli websites that after being affected were supposed to show fake messages asking to update a particular plugin, but instead of downloading it, the infected site was supposed to install the malware. Luckily, there was a severe flaw in the hackers’ code, and the plan failed. Further, ...

Scarab-dy8wud Ransomware

Scarab-dy8wud Ransomware is that annoying headache that comes seemingly out of nowhere and debilitates you. We are very familiar with this threat because it is identical to a bunch of others we have discussed and deleted already (e.g., Scarab-Good Ransomware, Scarab-Glutton Ransomware, Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware). These infections usually use spam emails to spread, but other methods of proliferation could be employed by the attackers. Once the launcher file is in, it is meant to create a copy file in the %APPDATA% directory, and so even if you remove Scarab-dy8wud Ransomware launcher right away, you are unlikely to stop the attack. ...

skynet45@tutanota.com Ransomware

New versions of the Crysis/Dharma Ransomware keep emerging, and our research team is now warning about skynet45@tutanota.com Ransomware. This infection is a regular file-encryptor that demands a ransom once all personal files are encrypted. Unfortunately, this infection is not one of those that are capable of faking encryption or that are weak and whose encryptors can be decoded. Once the files are encrypted, they are locked and sealed. The seal is the ".id-[8 character ID].[skynet45@cock.li].combo" extension that is added at the end of the files’ names. Note that the 8 character ID is unique for every victim. All Crysis/Dharma Ransomware ...

LockerGoga Ransomware

The list of malware you need to look out for keeps getting longer and longer, and we are sad to inform that LockerGoga Ransomware is the latest threat to be added to it. As you probably know already, this kind of malware is all about forcing victims to pay money, and since Windows users would not randomly give their savings to cyber attackers, the files are taken hostage. This is why file encryption occurs. When the threat finds a way into an operating system, it scans it to find personal files, and then the data is ciphered to render them ...

Bestdecoding@cock.li Ransomware

Bestdecoding@cock.li Ransomware is a new Crysis/Dharma Ransomware version. Same as with the previous variant its goal is to encrypt user’s data and show a message with demands for a ransom. Files that get enciphered become useless without decryption tools, but we would not recommend purchasing them from the malware’s developers. They may promise you anything, but in reality, you cannot know if they will do the right thing. In other words, there is a chance they might not deliver the needed tools or try to ask for even more money. For those who do not want to take any ...

FilesLocker Ransomware

FilesLocker Ransomware shows a warning written in English and Chinese that urge reading specific a text document. The note’s text instructs the user to pay a ransom to receive a decryption key which ought to decrypt the files affected by this threat. It encrypts user’s personal data with a strong cryptosystem, and so the files become unusable. Even if the data that got locked is irreplaceable, we would advise you not to make any rash decisions. The hackers ask for quite a considerable sum, and even though they promise to hold on to their end of the deal, in reality, ...
