Find Your Packages Promos

Find Your Packages Promos seems to be a package-tracking tool. However, its description on Chrome Web Store starts with: “Receive relevant advertisements as you browse the internet. By monitoring your web browsing activity, we can make sure offers and promotions are tailored to you.” Thus, it looks like showing users targeted advertisements could be one of the main application’s features along with providing the package-tracking tool. Naturally, if you do not like seeing tailored ads while browsing, you should ask yourself whether you wish to keep a browser extension that might display such ads. If you need to learn more ...

Lokd Ransomware

If you open spam email attachments or download files set up by cybercriminals, you could invite Lokd Ransomware into your operating system without even meaning to. This malicious threat is very stealthy, and you are not supposed to recognize it during installation. So, if you think that you can definitely identify malicious threats, think again. If the threat is executed successfully, it instantly encrypts personal files. It does not wait because there is a risk that the victim could recognize and delete the launcher file. It encrypts personal files only because these are the files that people care about. If ...

Remk Ransomware

If you think that the entrance of Remk Ransomware is a complicated process, think again. The launcher of this malware can be camouflaged as a harmless document or photo, and it could be introduced to you via spam emails or using social engineering scams. The launcher could also be hidden or introduced to you as a legitimate and useful program via an unreliable software bundle. Trickery and stealth is involved, and if you are not cautious, the malicious ransomware can slither in within moments. It does not have a complex structure, and one single file can create chaos. If your ...

HistorySee

If learning new history facts is something that you like, you might come across a browser extension called HistorySee. It offers an “exciting historical-fact generator tool” that can provide users with “facts on wars, battles, inventions, discoveries & more.” However, users should also know that the application might change their browser preferences, such as their new tab page, and read their browsing histories. Such functionality might annoy some users, which is why the extension falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs. You can learn more about it if you read the rest of this article. Also, we can ...

Nppp Ransomware

Nppp Ransomware is a new variant of the infamous STOP Ransomware. The malware experts in our internal lab are so familiar with this family of threats that it takes one single look to recognize a new variant. A few other threats that belong to the same family include Righ Ransomware, Remk Ransomware, Lokd Ransomware, and Rezm Ransomware. Clearly, four-letter names are preferred. It is possible that these ...

Calix Ransomware

No one wants to deal with Calix Ransomware, but sometimes such programs reach their target systems. Such programs are extremely dangerous because it is often impossible to reverse whatever they have done on your computer. As far as we know, currently, there is no public decryption tool available for this infection. Therefore, when you remove Calix Ransomware from your computer, you might have to start building your data library anew. Do not let that discourage you. If you feel that you need help with file recovery, feel free to address a local professional who would guide you through a ...

Video-Browse

Among useless applications and extensions there are those who prove to be more useless than others, and Video-Browse takes the cake. This search tool promises to offer a “new search experience,” but all it can actually do is redirect you to a legitimate search engine to show you results corresponding to your queries. If that was not enough, the extension is also unreliable because the results it shows via a third-party search engine are modified. Hopefully, you have not downloaded or interacted with this potentially unwanted program (PUP) yet, but if you have, we suggest deleting it without delay. ...

Download Office Tools

Download Office Tools is an extension designed for Google Chrome users. It is meant to offer access to file converters, as well as news/weather/email/shopping websites. It is introduced to users via an official website, downloadofficetools.com, but can be installed from the Chrome web store only. However, the installer at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/download-office-tools/ldhoijljiabcmmekleglgmdkmpklkeio has been taken down. We are waiting to see if the creator (Eightpoint Technologies Ltd.) will try to set up a new installers, but for now, it looks like it cannot be installed from the platform that most Chrome users use to download extensions. This is great news. Of ...

Rxx Ransomware

You might have let Rxx Ransomware in by complete accident. The launcher of this infection can be introduced to Windows users as a document or application file that poses no threat. Cybercriminals can use misleading spam emails and also bundled downloaders to introduce the launcher file stealthily. Once the file is executed, the threat runs immediately, and its first task is to encrypt all personal files. If you have discovered that your files cannot be read and that the .id-*.[back_data@foxmail.com].rxx extension (* is random for every user) has been added to them, you can rest assured that you have ...

Ooss Ransomware

Ooss Ransomware is not a threat that you can erase and forget about if you do not back up files on your computer. This malicious application enters systems to encrypt private victims’ files to lock them or, in other words, make them unusable. Deleting the malware does not unlock files as the only way to do that is to decipher them with special decryption tools. The hackers behind the malware claim to have them and promise to send them to users who pay ransom, but there are no guarantees that they will bother to do so. Therefore, whatever you ...
