help@badfail.info Ransomware

help@badfail.info Ransomware is a malicious application that has locked files on your computer if they have all received the V.0.0.0.1{help@badfail.info}.paradise filename extension. We consider this threat dangerous malicious software because it mercilessly encrypts almost all files it manages to find on the affected computer. Luckily, it does not encrypt any system files, so your Windows operating system will not be ruined. It does not lock users’ personal files just for fun. Instead, it seems that it also tries to obtain money from users like similar infections categorized as ransomware: “You have to pay for decryption in Bitcoins. The price depends on how fast you write to us.” We have to admit that there might be no other ways to get files back if files have already been locked by ransomware because they use strong ciphers to encrypt data, but it does not mean that you should send money to malicious software developers. There are no guarantees that you will get the decryption tool from them, so you should not transfer a cent. It does not mean that there are no ways to unlock files. Continue reading to find more.

Everbe 2.0 Ransomware

Everbe 2.0 Ransomware

It is easy to let Everbe 2.0 Ransomware in by making a simple mistake. This mistake could be opening a corrupted spam email attachment that is introduced to you using an incredibly believable message. You could also make the mistake of downloading the launcher of the ransomware by interacting with a malicious downloader/installer. These can be presented on unreliable file-sharing sites, as well as via pop-up scams. If you are fooled into letting the infection in, it wastes no time. First, it deletes shadow volume copies to make the recovery of files more complicated or even impossible. Some Windows users choose system-provided backups, but that is not what we recommend doing because cyber criminals have figured out how to affect internal backups. Instead, we recommend using online storage services or external drives. Hopefully, your personal files are already backed up externally, and the ransomware has no way of blackmailing you. Continue reading to learn more about this. We also show how to delete Everbe 2.0 Ransomware. Read more »

Scarab-Deep Ransomware

Scarab-Deep Ransomware

If you are not careful about the security of your operating system, Scarab-Deep Ransomware might attack in a very clandestine way. It appears that the infection could use spam emails to expose gullible and careless users to the malicious launcher. Unreliable installers and unguarded remote access connections could be used to drop malware too. Once installed, the infection can successfully encrypt files that you would call personal, including documents, media content, or photos. The “.deep” extension is added to all of the files that are corrupted. The sad thing is that you cannot restore files by removing the added extension or the infection itself. The only thing that can help is a decryptor, and it is in the hands of cyber criminals. In some cases, free decryptors exist, but Anti-Spyware-101.com research team informs that it does not exist for this malware.

ibrowsersearch.com

ibrowsersearch.com

You have to be careful about ibrowsersearch.com. It does not look like a malicious search engine, but, of course, it does not look like a truly beneficial one either. In fact, its interface is pretty damn boring as there is only a search field displayed. Next to it, you can find the “powered by Google” tag, which, undoubtedly, is meant to make you trust the service more. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, the search results are not modified – at least, at the time of research they were not – which means that it might be okay for you to use the search tool. Of course, we cannot say that with confidence because, after all, there’s still a possibility that the activity of this search tool is not as reliable as we might think right now. Due to this, it is recommended that all users take a good look at the search engine and consider its removal. Do you want to learn how to delete ibrowsersearch.com manually? Our researchers have created a guide that shows how to do it. Read more »
