EGGLocker Ransomware

EGGLocker Ransomware

EGGLocker Ransomware is the newest ransomware infection specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com have discovered. At the time of research, it did not lock files on users’ computers and did not drop a ransom note demanding money, so it is safe to say that this malicious application is still in development. Of course, it might be updated soon, so do not be so sure that this infection cannot slither onto your computer and cause problems. Ransomware infections do not need to get permission from users to enter their computers, so it might not be very easy to protect your system against this threat too. If it is already too late for prevention, i.e. you have already encountered EGGLocker Ransomware, you must delete this infection right away even if it has not locked any personal files belonging to you – it might get updates and lock them all one day in the future. As research conducted by our specialists has shown, this ransomware infection creates a folder named EGG on Desktop, a file EGG.txt, and kills several processes on victims’ computers, but it still cannot be called sophisticated malware because it does not make any major modifications on affected systems. As a consequence, we are sure you will delete it from the system yourself with a little help from us. No, you are not allowed to keep it active on your system. Read more »

Sorry HT Ransomware

Sorry HT Ransomware

If Sorry HT Ransomware has invaded your operating system and encrypted your personal files, most likely, there is nothing for you to delete because this threat has the capability of erasing itself once the attack is complete. The purpose of this infection is to make a request for a ransom, and since it can encrypt files, making this request is very easy. If the victims of this malicious infection do not have their personal files backed up online or on external drives, recovering files is not possible without a decryptor and/or decryption key, and the creator of this infection might offer it for a price. This infection works exactly like Mole66 Ransomware, Gedantar Ransomware, L0cked Ransomware, and all other similar infections that our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has reported quite recently. Unfortunately, ransomware is a group of malware that continues to grow. Although there are security measures that can be taken to protect files and operating systems against it, Windows users often fail to take care of their virtual security in time. We discuss this, as well as the removal of Sorry HT Ransomware, in this report. Read more »

Gamersuperstar

Gamersuperstar

Gamersuperstar is an annoying ad-supported browser extension that can drive you crazy soon enough after installation with its potentially unreliable third-party ads. This adware can use several different types of ads to promote affiliates and thus generate income by driving web traffic to their sites. This extension has been found affecting Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari (Mac OS) as well. It is related to an online gaming website but you can see all kinds of ads shown by this adware. Since it is quite possible that you did not install this tool knowingly, it is likely that you will find several other malware infections and potentially unwanted programs on board. If you do not wish to cause more harm to your system, we suggest that you remove Gamersuperstar from your PC immediately after reading our report. Read more »

Mole66 Ransomware

Mole66 Ransomware

A new variant of the Mole Ransomware has emerged, and it is called Mole66 Ransomware. The name coincides with the extension that is attached to the files that this infection encrypts. Unfortunately, it also encrypts the names of these files, which might make it impossible for you to figure out what was corrupted. Without a doubt, when you are faced with claims that your files were corrupted, the first thing you need to do is check if your files were in fact corrupted because there are so many infections that only pose as encryptors. Unfortunately, the threat we are discussing in this report definitely can corrupt your personal files, which might include photos and text documents. At the time of research, a free decryptor that could help you recover these files did not exist, but Anti-Spyware-101.com analysts are hopeful that it could be created in the future because other threats from the same group – including Mole03 Ransomware and Mole02 Ransomware – had decryptors. Unfortunately, right now, the only thing you can do is delete Mole66 Ransomware, and that is very important. Read more »

Unfortunately, it is impossible to say when – or if – this infection will be fully completed. Hopefully, it stays helpless forever, but we cannot count on that. Whether or not you have faced the threat, there are things you need to learn about it, including protection against it, and, of course, removal. We are hopeful that no one will need to worry about deleting Gedantar Ransomware from their Windows operating systems, but since we cannot predict that, removal instructions have been created to assist those in need.

Dont_worry Ransomware

Dont_worry Ransomware

Dont_worry Ransomware is a malicious application that was developed by cyber criminals. They create ransomware infections for only one purpose – they want to obtain money from people. This threat will not ask you kindly to send some money to its author. Instead, it tries to push users into sending money to cyber criminals by locking their pictures, music, and all other important files. Surprisingly, you will be told that you need to pay for the decryption service only after you write a message to the indicated email address. The majority of ransomware infections demand a ransom from users immediately after they lock files belonging to them. Since crypto-malware usually uses strong encryption algorithms to restrict access to users’ personal files, purchasing the decryptor from cyber criminals might be your only chance to unlock your data, but we still do not recommend sending money to the author of this threat. The reason why we say so is simple – we do not believe that you could unlock your files after paying the money required. Of course, you are the one who has to make the final decision in this case.

L0cked Ransomware

L0cked Ransomware

A malicious file-encrypting infection called L0cked Ransomware was discovered recently. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has investigated it, and it appears that the threat has not been fully completed yet. Of course, it is also a possibility that it is a failed attempt at creating a fully functional file encryptor. Our research has revealed that the current version of the infection does not corrupt files; however, the threat can introduce victims to the demands anyway. Without a doubt, following them is not advised under any circumstances, and even if the malicious ransomware ends up encrypting every single personal file on your computer, following the instructions and paying the ransom is a terrible idea. Why? That is because the cyber criminals behind this infection have one thing on their mind, and that is your money. They can promise you anything just to get the money, and, unfortunately, they are unlikely to keep their promises once they do get it. In this report, we discuss the removal L0cked Ransomware, as well as ways to protect personal data and the operating system against malware in the future. Read more »

Flash Player Premium Sms

Flash Player Premium Sms

Flash Player Premium SMS pop-up was created to extort money from unsuspecting users, as well as to trick them into installing an application that cannot be trusted.

After you do that, you also need to inspect your system to check if you need to delete Flash Player Premium SMS-associated malware that might have introduced you to the misleading pop-up.
