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 »

Marlboro Ransomware

Marlboro Ransomware

A simple XOR cipher is used by Marlboro Ransomware to encrypt your personal files, and it appears that a legitimate file decryptor was created that can help decrypt the files corrupted by this infection. Unfortunately, not all users know about this, and many still think that they need to pay a ransom fee to get their files unlocked. The problem is that no one knows if the files with the “.oops” extension would be decrypted after the ransom payment was issued, and this is the main reason why following the demands of cyber criminals is not a good idea. Even if you cannot find a working decryptor, paying the ransom is not something we recommend doing. Hopefully, you do not need to resort to that to save your personal photos, media files, and documents. In any case – whether your files are restored or they are lost – you have to delete Marlboro Ransomware from your operating system, and that is not always easy. The main task is to remove the malicious launcher, and that might be hard to do if you are unable to identify it. Read more »

Havoc Ransomware

Havoc Ransomware

Havoc Ransomware is a recently developed malicious application. It should not become a real threat to you because it has been created just to find out whether it is hard to develop a ransomware infection. The author of this threat says that Havoc Ransomware will not be spread publicly; however, it does not mean that this infection is harmless. Bad people might steal the source code of this threat and then start spreading this computer infection through the web, so we believe that it is important that you know what to expect from it. To be frank, it does not differ much from older ransomware infections developed some time ago because its main purpose is to obtain money from users too. Also, it encrypts files which are located on Desktop and its subfolders. Finally, Havoc Ransomware opens a window with a ransom note when it finishes encrypting files. As it is already known, this computer infection has been created just for fun, so it should not be widely distributed and affect many users. Of course, if it ever happens that you discover this malicious application on your computer, go to delete it from your computer as soon as possible and do not transfer the amount of money indicated in the ransom note. Never send money to cyber criminals if you encounter a ransomware infection because your money might be taken and you might not get anything in exchange. Also, users support cyber criminals by paying money to them. Read more »

CryptoSweetTooth Ransomware

CryptoSweetTooth Ransomware

CryptoSweetTooth Ransomware means a major threat to your personal files, including your images, videos, documents, and archives. This ransomware program can infiltrate your system silently and encrypt your files without you noticing it until it is too late. Obviously, the surprise factor is a vital element for such a malware infection. Unfortunately, once your files have been encrypted, there is not much you can do to unlock them. These criminals try to make you believe that your only chance at getting your files back is to pay them the ransom fee for which they promise to send you the decryption key. Since dealing with criminals is rarely about mutual trust, you should be very careful what you decide on. Experience shows that victims almost never get the key when it comes to ransomware attacks. On the other hand, why would you support criminals? While this could be a dilemma for you, we recommend that you act immediately and remove CryptoSweetTooth Ransomware from your computer.

Reg TuneUp

Reg TuneUp

Reg TuneUp might seem like a useful PC optimizer, but in reality, the benefits of this software are questionable. The program performs a system scan and afterward it may show a report with various computer issues. However, our researchers noticed that most of the detected errors are detections of empty folders or Windows Registry entries, which could have been left after uninstalling software and so on. Naturally, we doubt the deletion of such data could visibly increase computer’s speed or “Drastically improve overall PC performance” like the application’s official website claims. The free version of Reg TuneUp is rather annoying too since it might launch itself automatically and keep suggesting purchasing the full version. Because of its unwanted qualities, the tool was categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). If you do not want to keep it on your computer either, we can offer a manual removal guide placed below the text. Read more »
