.crypted000007 File Extension Ransomware

.crypted000007 File Extension Ransomware encrypts files, which is why they become unrecognizable, and victims become unable to open them. The malware's developers may have decryption tools that could restore all data to normal. However, we are almost one hundred percent sure the hackers will want to receive a ransom in return. That is because most of such threats are developed solely for money extortion. Of course, no matter how much you want your files back, we recommend considering paying a ransom carefully. As you can imagine, people who make a living by extorting money from others are not people you ...

Rsalive Ransomware

Rsalive Ransomware is not a unique infection. Besides the fact that it does not have unique traits, it is not unique overall, and that is because it is just a new version of the infamous Scarab Ransomware. Other infections that work just the same include Scarab-Apple Ransomware, Scarab-Good Ransomware, .crypted034 Ransomware, online24files@airmail.cc Ransomware, and many others. It is most likely that different parties stand behind these infections, and, unfortunately, we do not know anything about them. The attackers are stealthy, and they use special tricks to ensure their anonymity. For example, when it comes to distribution, the ransomware is usually ...

SystemBC

It is always hard to fight an enemy when it doesn’t have a face. SystemBC is a malware infection that is tricky to pinpoint or explain to a regular user. We are probably used to malicious infections that we can see, to something that has at least a semblance of a graphic user’s interface. This infection has none of that, and it can take a while before you even find out that this program has entered your computer. What’s more, manual removal can be quite complicated, so it would be for the best to remove SystemBC from your system ...

VBShower

According to researchers, the malware was created to attack government institutions or other organizations, for example, religious organizations, which is why it is unlikely regular home users could encounter it. It is reported that the campaign during which the malicious application is being spread is called Cloud Atlas. It seems it is mostly targeted at users in Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, India, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Portugal, and some other countries. Further, in the text, we ...

Mogranos Ransomware

Receiving threats like Mogranos Ransomware is something that users who keep valuable data on their computers are trying to avoid. That is because the malicious application enciphers files on a system and makes them unusable. As a consequence, hackers behind the malware have a reason to demand their victims to pay a ransom. In exchange, they may offer to send a victim his unique decryption key and decryption software. Unfortunately, even if the threat’s creators promise to provide with necessary decryption tools, it does not mean they will do so in reality. Meaning, there is a possibility that some users ...

BS2005

BS2005 is not a new infection. In fact, it was first discovered back in 2012, but because it is still active, and the creator (Operation Ke3chang) still continues to create new malware tools, we need to talk about it. This malware is identified as a Trojan, which means that it uses disguises to slither into an operating system and remain silent until the time to strike comes. In fact, this Trojan can remain silent forever because it does not have an interface, and its malicious processes can be performed silently. Needless to say, that makes it harder to identify and ...
