First Ransomware

First Ransomware

If you find the ransom note of First Ransomware on your screen, you could be one of those lucky computer users who got infected with a version of malware infection that does not actually pose a threat. Our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have found that this variant could still be in development since it does not seem to encrypt any file on your system. As you may know, ransomware programs are usually considered to be major hits as they can encrypt your files and thus make them unusable until decrypted with the private key. Unfortunately, cyber criminals rarely send this key to their victims even after they transfer the demanded fee. In this case, you could not even send the rather high ransom fee as there is no Bitcoin address or e-mail given either. Therefore, you do not need to sink into a deep dilemma whether to support cyber crime and hopefully recover your files or lose them for good. In this case we definitely advise you to remove First Ransomware as soon as you see its ransom note screen. Please continue reading our article if you would like to find out how you can defend your system from similar infections. Read more »

2netvl.ru

2netvl.ru

2netvl.ru is usually classified as a browser hijacker even though it has an appearance of an ordinary news website. According to specialists, it belongs to this category because it is set on users’ browsers without their permission. Also, apart from changing a homepage on Google Chrome, it seems that it is capable of performing other activities too. Users report that their browsers are opened automatically every 5-10 minutes with the URL http://2netvl.ru/obsorvia at the top. Then, the redirection to another suspicious domain, e.g. containing surveys and asking to complete them immediately happens. The domain promoted might change, but it is not very likely that this browser hijacker will ever stop opening windows of your browser automatically. Also, 2netvl.ru will definitely not leave your Google Chrome browser itself unless you go to delete it. Keeping such suspicious websites set on browsers might result in serious security-related problems because websites promoted by browser hijackers are, usually, completely untrustworthy. Sadly, the same can be said about 2netvl.ru. Read more »
