Razy 5.0 Ransomware

Razy 5.0 Ransomware

Razy 5.0 Ransomware was discovered some time ago by specialists focusing on the detection, research, and analysis of malware. This infection might seem to be slightly different if compared to other ransomware infections, including CryptoCat Ransomware, DevNightmare Ransomware, and Locklock Ransomware; however, it is not very true. Yes, Razy 5.0 Ransomware might have distinctive features, for example, it does not store the encryption key anywhere, but it also seeks to extort money like all the aforementioned threats. At the time of writing, it is impossible to pay money for cyber criminals who have developed Razy 5.0 Ransomware, so they will not be able to obtain money from users unless they fix the ransomware infection they have released. Researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com do not recommend transferring money cyber criminals require because users often do not get anything from cyber criminals. In other words, cyber criminals take money from them but do not give the decryption tool in exchange. Of course, purchasing the decryptor from cyber crooks might be the only way to decrypt files, but researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com still do not think that paying money for them is a good idea.

Currentexplore.com

Currentexplore.com is one of the most suspicious and mysterious search tools out there.

If you have not removed Currentexplore.com yet, you might be interested in the information provided within this report. Read more »

Fabiansomware

Fabiansomware

Fabiansomware is a new variant in the so-called Apocalypse Ransomware family that has been giving birth to at least half a dozen offspring since May, 2016, when it first emerged. If you find out that your computer has been hit by this ransomware, we may have good news for you. As a matter of fact, this is the kind of ransomware threat that can be hacked quite easily and malware hunters come out with the latest decryption tools soon after a new variant hits the web. This must have upset the authors of this malicious threat, who named their new variant after a Twitter user who shares system security advice and decryption tools through his account. Although this threat may not be the most dangerous ransomware there is, because of the number of variants and new ones emerging, it could be a bit difficult to identify exactly what you have been attacked by, which is essential when it comes to using the right decryption software. Failing to do so can result in your files staying encrypted and inaccessible until you find the right tool. Read more »

It is very likely that it locks all these files to be able to get easy money from users. Even though FSociety Ransomware does not differ much from other ransomware infections the way it acts, e.g. BlackFeather Ransomware, HDD Encrypt Ransomware, and Petya Ransomware, it is still different in a sense that it does not work very well. For example, it has been found that it does not leave any message for the user. The only thing you will notice if this infection really enters your PC is that it is impossible to access the most important files. Also, they will have a different filename extension. As FSociety Ransomware does not create any message explaining what to do and what cyber criminals behind FSociety Ransomware expect from you, you will not be offered to buy the decryption tool either.
