Wannacry Detected Scam

If you see a warning claiming that Wannacry, a nasty ransomware infection, is active on your PC, you must have encountered Wannacry Detected Scam. Its purpose is to scare you into believing that you have harmful malware “on your computer and network location.” Of course, it is a lie, we can assure you. You see this warning not because the ransomware infection has successfully slithered onto your computer. Instead, its appearance might be directly associated with the entrance of malicious software. Of course, you could have found this fake warning on some kind of dubious domain you have opened accidentally as well. In such a case, it will disappear from your screen and will never bother you again if you close your web browser and make sure you do not open that page ever again. Unfortunately, it is more likely that you have encountered Wannacry Detected Scam because there is malware installed on your computer if the fake warning is opened to you automatically from time to time no matter what you do. It might be any malicious application, so we cannot promise that its removal will be very easy. Read more »

Ranion 1.07 Ransomware

Ranion 1.07 Ransomware

Ranion 1.07 Ransomware is claimed to be an educational project but it appears to be a complete lie. Our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that this is indeed a RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) sold on the darknet. This also means unfortunately that more and more variants may surface with smaller or bigger differences according to the particular buyers' choices and configurations. If this ransomware, any of its variants, managed to infiltrate your system, you can be sure that your most important files will be encrypted. Causing irrevocable damage is not the main goal here; extorting money from the victims for the decryption key is why this ransomware really exists. Although you may believe that paying the ransom fee will free your files, we beg to differ. As a matter of fact, it is always very risky to pay due to the fact that cyber criminals would rather disappear than send you the decryption key. We recommend that you remove Ranion 1.07 Ransomware immediately after you realize that you have been hit. Read more »

WantMoney Ransomware

WantMoney Ransomware

WantMoney Ransomware is a malicious threat that replaces the victim’s desktop image with a picture of a skull made from dollar signs and placed on a red background. Besides the skull, the new wallpaper might show a ransom note written both in Chinese and English. In it, the malicious application’s creators should ask their victims to transfer a particular amount of money into their account. In exchange, they offer a decryption key with which it is said the user would be able to restore all malware’s affected files. As you see, the infection locks user’s data with a secure cryptosystem to make them unusable. However, we would advise you not to trust the hackers as they could trick you. Instead, we recommend looking for another way to decrypt encrypted files. Those who do not wish to risk their savings should simply get rid of WantMoney Ransomware. To learn how to remove it you could follow the instructions located below the text, but if you want to get to know this threat better too, you should read the article first. Read more »

Pc Opticlean

Pc Opticlean appears to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP), so if you thought it to be a reliable piece of software, you should read our report and get to know it better. Our researchers say it has both annoying and suspicious qualities. Moreover, from what we have learned about the application during our tests, we would not advise counting on it when it comes to detecting critical system errors or threats. In any case, even if it would identify issues your computer might need to be fixed, you could not do so because the free version can only scan the computer. Of course, we do not recommend buying it when you cannot even test how it works, and there is a possibility you might find it completely useless. Thus, if you do not want to waste any time or your money on a PUP, you could follow the deletion instructions available at the end of this text. Read more »

ABC Ransomware

ABC Ransomware

ABC Ransomware is a new variant of Globeimposter Ransomware. Yes, it slightly differs from the original threat, but it still acts as a typical ransomware infection. If it ever slithers onto your computer, you will soon find your files encrypted. This infection locks music, videos, pictures, and other valuable files not without reason. The only purpose ransomware infections are set to perform the encryption of files is to make it easier for crooks to obtain money from users. If you already see .astra at the end of the majority of your files, it means that your data has already been locked. Luckily, ABC Ransomware does not encrypt any system files, so your operating system will continue working normally after its successful entrance. Are you reading this article because you have already encountered ABC Ransomware? If the answer to this question is positive, your files must have been encrypted too. You will be asked to send money to be able to decrypt them, but you should not do that because the chances are high that you could still not unlock them. If you are not going to pay money to crooks, it does not mean you can let this ransomware infection stay active on your computer. If you do not remove its components from your system, you might launch this infection again, and, of course, it will not miss an opportunity to lock your new files when this happens. The last paragraph contains everything you need to know about the removal of this ransomware infection. On top of that, you will find the manual removal guide below this article, so we are sure you will manage to erase it from your computer. Read more »

Your Mac Is Heavily Damaged Alerts

The continuous flow of Your Mac Is Heavily Damaged Alerts does not necessarily mean that your MAC computer has been really damaged by harmful malicious software. It is more likely that these alerts you see are scam, so you should ignore them all completely. Some users manage to get rid of these fake alerts by closing their web browsers, i.e. by closing dubious domains opened; however, it usually turns out that there is some kind of untrustworthy software active on users’ computers if they see alerts claiming that their computers are “heavily damaged”. If closing the web browser does not work in your case, you will need to find malicious software on your computer and disable it to get rid of Your Mac Is Heavily Damaged Alerts. It might be any untrustworthy application (of course, it is very likely that you have encountered adware or a potentially unwanted application), so we cannot promise that it will be a piece of cake to remove it and thus eliminate disturbing fake warnings from the screen. Of course, we do not try to say here that you could not eliminate these fake notifications. Read more »

Hc7 Ransomware

Hc7 Ransomware is a new threat that can attack your computer and your whole network, and encrypt all important files causing severe devastation. Our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that this threat is not really as new as it seems because it is indeed a new variant of a previous ransomware program called Hc6 Ransomware. This new variant is also coded in the Python programming language and seems very similar to the previous version. However, while Hc6 can be decrypted now using a free tool, this ransomware is still not decryptable, which means that you can easily lose all your files in this malicious attack. Although these attackers offer you the decryption key for a rather high price, you have no guarantee at all that you will actually get it in return. We believe that the only legitimate way to recover your files until a free tool may surface is to use a backup that you may have stored on a removable drive or cloud. But before you would rush to update your encrypted files from a backup, we highly recommend that you remove Hc7 Ransomware from your computer. Read more »
