Cerber Ransomware

Cerber Ransomware

Cerber Ransomware is a devious Windows infection that enters your operating system using clandestine methods. Whether this program slithers in via a corrupted spam email attachment or gets downloaded by a malicious installer, it will hide itself until all of your personal files are encrypted. If this malicious infection successfully encrypts your personal files, it can proceed to demand a ransom from you. According to our research, at the moment, this ransom is 1.24 BTC, which is around 507 USD or 463 EUR. Every user is given 7 days to make the payment, and, if the payment is not made, the ransom supposedly rises to 2.48 BTC (~1014 USD/925 EUR). Note that the Bitcoin currency is quite unstable and the currency ratios fluctuate frequently. All in all, the sums are high, and it is unlikely that many victims have this kind of money lying around. Unfortunately, at the moment, it is impossible to decrypt personal files in other ways, which means that paying the ransom might be the only way to regain control over your files. Of course, this does not change the fact that you must remove Cerber Ransomware. Read more »

Search.searchctp.com

Search.searchctp.com is presented as a powerful search tool for users, but we can assure you that it is not. Instead, it is another browser hijacker released by Polarity Technologies Ltd.

RegistryCleaner

RegistryCleaner (might also use the Pcobserver name) is an application that has fallen into the category of rogue registry cleaners. Our malware analysts have discovered it recently, so its infection rate is still quite small, but, of course, this might dramatically change soon because a page (registrycleaner.online/download-now) it can be downloaded from exists, and, on top of that, it might be distributed in software bundles, specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com say. No matter where users get RegistryCleaner from, they usually do not rush to remove this scanner from their computers because it, at first sight, looks quite decent. Evidently, it tries to convince users that it is a powerful registry scanner/cleaner because it imitates the system scan when users click on the blue Scan button they see. Needless to say, its scan results cannot be trusted – they are completely fake. Because of this, RegistryCleaner has been classified as a rogue registry cleaner. Delete it without consideration and replace it with a scanner that can be trusted. Read more »
