J Ransomware

J Ransomware is a computer infection that seemingly has not been developed to the fullest yet. Although it can encrypt your files, the program does not come with the features that would allow it to collect the ransom payment from you. Hence, you need to deal with the consequences of this infection, without the chance of restoring your files with the decryption key from these criminals. As a public decryption tool is not available either, you should focus entirely on removing J Ransomware from your computer. You might be able to restore your files using other means, but first, you need to make sure that your computer is safe and clean again. Read more »

Aleta Ransomware

Aleta Ransomware

If your personal files were encrypted by the malicious Aleta Ransomware, the chances are that these files are lost for good. That is because there is no way of recovering the files without the decryption key and because cyber criminals are unlikely to give this key to you even if you follow the instructions presented by them. Although the developer of the ransomware promises you a key and a decryptor as soon as the ransom is transferred, the promises of cyber criminals are usually empty. If you decide to follow the demands, you might end up losing your money along with your files. Remember about this risk. Unfortunately, some users feel forced to fulfill the demands because they need their files back, and the only option they have is to do as told. If that is the situation you are in, think very carefully if the files that were encrypted are worth the risk of exposing yourself to cyber criminals and losing your savings. Whether or not you pay the ransom and whether or not your files are decrypted, deleting Aleta Ransomware is the most important task, and that is what we focus on in this report. Read more »

YourDailyTrailer

YourDailyTrailer

Have you downloaded YourDailyTrailer because it is promoted as the must-have extension for movie fans? If you have been tricked by that promise, you must have realized by now that this suspicious extension is useless. The best thing it can do is offer easy-access links to movie-related websites, and this feature is not that beneficial. The add-on also promises to help you watch trailers online, which you, obviously, can do without some suspicious piece of software. To show trailers, the PUP provides a link to www.traileraddict.com. It also presents links to rottentomatoes.com, hollywoodreporter.com, screenrant.com, variety.com/e/contenders, and a bunch of links to sites that are not movie-related. That is all that the PUP (potentially unwanted program) is good for, and so our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team believes that it serves a different purpose. Maybe that purpose is to expose Google Chrome users to a suspicious hijacker. We advise deleting YourDailyTrailer and the hijacker it comes bundled with, and if you do not know how to achieve that, use our tips. Read more »

Gansta Ransomware

Gansta Ransomware

If you find out the Gansta Ransomware has attacked your computer, you should not start panicking because this version seems to be an innocent and semi-working sample of a ransomware program. Our malware researchers at anti-spyware-101.com say that this ransomware may still be under development but it is also possible that its server has been shut down because it fails to encrypt your files. But this is not the only strange thing about this malware because we have seen lately a couple of ransomware infections that did not actually encrypt anything even though they claimed so. This vicious-wanna-be program does not even ask for a ransom fee. The authors claim that you can get the decryption key for free; not that you need it anyway. Of course, we have to mention that this may easily change soon and a working copy may hit the web or the server could be switched back on. So you should not really take even this threat too lightly. In fact, we advise you to take action and remove Gansta Ransomware from your system right away. Please read on to find out how you can prevent similar infections from happening. Read more »
