VirLock Ransomware

VirLock Ransomware

VirLock Ransomware is a new computer infection that has started spreading on the web recently. The main goal of this threat is also to extort money from users; however, it differs from other ransomware infections that are popular these days, e.g. CryptoFinancial Ransomware, SATANA Ransomware, and CryptoRoger Ransomware in a sense that it uses different tactics to scare users into paying the money it requires. Even though the message it locks screens with is very convincing, you should not believe any word written in it because it is completely fake and is shown for users because cyber criminals who have developed VirLock Ransomware seek to get easy money. Even though we have convinced you to ignore the message you see on your screen, it is still a must to delete the ransomware from the system to be able to use the computer normally again. As it blocks system files and makes other modifications in the system registry, users will not be allowed to access the Start menu, Task Manager, and the Run command, which makes it extremely hard to delete VirLock Ransomware from the system. Do not worry; specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com will tell you in the article what you need to do to erase it fast. Read more »

Sport Score

Sport Score

Sport Score is a suspicious program that you are most likely to download bundled with other programs. We assume this because it is unlikely that many users will seek out this program purposefully and view it as a beneficial tool. The official download page, getsportscore.com, is useful only because of the links to the “Terms” and “Privacy” documents represented via it. In fact, even the download link redirects to chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/sports-score/flgldhokbahffkebmfldneocfccfceka. The information on this Chrome web store page is not exactly helpful either. Sure, the download link works, but it is still unclear how this program works. If you click the “Add to Chrome” button, you are greeted with a pop-up asking to confirm the addition, and this pop-up warns that the program can read and change both your browsing history and your data on the sites you visit. On top of that, the pop-up warns that your search settings will be changed to feed.getsportscore.com. Needless to say, we recommend removing Sport Score due to this activity, and we discuss this in the report. Read more »
