Wannacry666 Ransomware

Wannacry666 Ransomware is a harmful application that encrypts files so that the malware’s creators could keep them as hostages. After the encryption process, the malware should open a pop-up and drop text documents with the message from hackers behind the threat. Both of the messages ought to ask users to pay a ransom in exchange for receiving decryption tools. As you see, decrypting enciphered files is the only way to make them readable again. Even though the malware’s creators might be the only ones who have the required decryptions tools, we still do not recommend putting up with their ...

ApocalypseClipper Malware

Regular cryptocurrency transfers/payments can be hijacked, and ApocalypseClipper Malware is one of the threats capable of doing that. This Windows infection deploys vulnerabilities and security backdoors to invade unguarded operating systems, and if it is successful, it can run in the background without much notice. In fact, according to our research team, identifying this malware can be extremely difficult, and if one does not know what they are looking for, they are likely to overlook this threat completely. It was discovered that it can conceal itself as a system process, and it is set to run automatically. That being ...

ConverterSearchHD

ConverterSearchHD is a PUP (potentially unwanted program), and so if you expected it to work in a beneficial way, we have to disappoint you. This PUP is not only not useful but also pretty mysterious and unpredictable, and that is never a good sign. According to our researchers, this extension can collect data about its users and pass it on to parties that we know nothing about. Clearly, it is not transparent. Perhaps some users would be willing to put up with that if the services provided by the extension were useful. However, they are not useful in any ...

IStreamSearch

IStreamSearch wants to come across as a useful tool that can improve your web browsing experience. You must’ve heard this line multiple times before, and that wouldn’t be a lie because Chrome extensions like IStreamSearch get released every other day. What’s more, this extension comes from a well-known group of similar apps that look like useful tools, but in reality, they just want to generate financial profit for their developers, and they do that by displaying third-party advertisements. While that is not illegal, it could expose users to a variety of cybersecurity threats. Hence, you should consider removing IStreamSearch today. You ...

Eknkfwovyzb Ransomware

Eknkfwovyzb Ransomware is as basic as they come. It slithers in. It encrypts files. It makes demands. There are no frills with this particular infection, and that is why we do not believe that it will become a major threat. That being said, if it invades Windows operating systems, it can cause irreversible damage to the files that are found on them. While this malware does not affect the system itself, it silently corrupts every single file that is identified as unique. That means that this infection is after photos, videos, documents, and similar kinds of files. Needless to ...

Tabe Ransomware

Your inability to protect your Windows operating system can cost you your files, and Tabe Ransomware is here to make sure of that. Unguarded operating systems have various security backdoors and cracks that cybercriminals can use to drop and execute malware files. Of course, in most cases, the victim is involved as well. Spam emails seem to be preferred by cybercriminals, who can create a misleading message and pin a malicious file to it. If the recipient of such an email is gullible enough, and if their system is not protected appropriately, malware can be executed silently. That is how ...

Copa Ransomware

What is Copa Ransomware? It is a file-encrypting infection that employs a unique encryption algorithm to scramble the data of your files. This is how the attackers behind the infection ensure that you cannot read your files. What is the point of that? The attackers hope that that could help them extort money from you. They are meant to offer you a decryptor that, supposedly, can restore all files, but you must know better than to trust cybercriminals. Our research team warns that you are unlikely to get anything from them, even if you fulfill their demands, which we ...

MyDocsHere

What are your hopes for MyDocsHere? Do you hope that this extension will help you create documents, presentations, and spreadsheets directly from your browser? If that is the case, perhaps you might find this PUP (potentially unwanted program) relatively useful. Our research team, however, warns that it does not work in an extremely beneficial way, and, on top of that, it can completely change the way you browse the web. This extension falls into the same category of PUPs as WatchMyTVShows Toolbar, Get Speed Test Fast, Local Weather Alerts, Quick Radio Search, and Screen Dream Toolbar, and while they are ...
