GamingHub

GamingHub is a browser extension and a potentially unwanted program that may change user’s new tab page with a site of its own. Our researchers advise being careful with it as the application asks for a lot of permissions; not to mention, the search engine that might be loaded as the user’s new tab page could be unreliable. For those who do not want to take any chances by using a doubtful tool, we would recommend removing GamingHub before anything goes wrong. Users who wish to learn more about it first could continue reading our article. Further, we will ...

BlueMountain

If you use an ordinary web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome to surf the Internet, it could have picked up BlueMountain. You do not need to do anything if it turns out to be true because it is not malicious for sure. Specialists working at pcthreat.com say that it should not cause any security-related problems either. BlueMountain is not some kind of malicious application. Instead, specialists have categorized it as a tracking cookie. Generally speaking, these cookies are not dangerous unless they are employed to spy on users. Usually, users encounter cookies that spy on ...

HiddenBeer Ransomware

HiddenBeer Ransomware is another new threat based on the open-source ransomware known as Hidden Tear. It encrypts the user’s files with a secure encryption algorithm, which makes it impossible to open data without a particular decryption key. The malware’s creators seek getting paid as they ask for 100 US dollars in Bitcoins transferred into their account in exchange for the decryption key. What you should understand is while the hackers might promise to send it after you make the payment, in reality, there are no guarantees they will hold on to their word. Therefore, our researchers think it is ...

The definition says that tracking cookies are nothing more than pieces of information stored on users’ computers after visiting certain websites.

Cpm10.com

Cpm10.com may display various advertising material that could be both irritating and possibly dangerous. Our researchers say the website acts as a redirect as it takes the user to different web pages that could show the mentioned content. As a consequence, the application falls under the classification of the adware server. Needless to say, if you do not like being redirected to doubtful web pages, we would recommend getting rid of Cpm10.com at once. Our researchers tell a browser reset might be needed to remove the adware server from the browser. The task should not be difficult, but if ...

Power System Care

We have another useless system optimizer on our hands, and it is called “Power System Care.” It is identical to many other recently reported system optimizers that scan Windows systems and list “items” that, allegedly, are slowing down those systems. The goal is to convince users to pay for the licensed version of the tool. There are quite a few clones of the suspicious program, and a few of them include Power Speedup 2018, Power Cleaner 2018, and Win Speedup 2018. Since the year is almost at the end now, it is likely that we will start seeing new ...

Go.bonanzoro.com

You should not hesitate to remove Go.bonanzoro.com because although it looks like a harmless search engine, it is a browser hijacker. It can take over your Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Chrome browser, but it is unlikely to do that without your permission. The infection is most likely to be introduced to you as you download something else. Software bundles are often used for the distribution of malware and useless programs, which is why you need to be cautious whenever you face them. Unfortunately, the operators of bundled installers often put extremely attractive programs up front to push users into ...
