Nilla Weather

Nilla Weather

Recently our researchers have discovered another potentially unwanted program (PUP) almost identical to Check Weather or Always Weather; it is called Nilla Weather. Like its older versions, the application is targeted at Google Chrome users and is designed to show users weather forecasts based on their location. Nevertheless, our specialists at Anti-spyware-101.com discovered that the add-on might do more than provide the user with weather information. Apparently, the extension might place third-party advertisements while the user is surfing the Internet. The worst part is, there are no guarantees about such content's reliability and given it could be displayed by a PUP we would not be surprised if some of the ads may redirect the user to scam web pages, suggest installing various threats, etc. Because of this, we recommend not to waste any time with Nilla Weather and get rid of it with no hesitation.

Bancocrypt Ransomware

Bancocrypt Ransomware is another name of Jhash Ransomware. Its primary goal is to help cyber criminals to obtain money from users, so the first activity it performs on affected computers is the encryption of victims’ personal files (for instance, pictures, downloads, games, videos, and much more). The encryption of victims’ personal data is nothing new – the majority of ransomware infections created using the source code of Hidden-Tear, open-source ransomware, lock users’ data right after slithering onto their computers. We suspect that your files have already been locked too if you are reading this article. There are hundreds of crypto-threats that could have done that, but you can be sure that Bancocrypt Ransomware is the one responsible for encrypting your data if these files you can no longer open have a new extension appended to them. Specifically speaking, this infection uses the .locky extension to mark those locked files. You will not remove this extension easily. In fact, only a decryptor can do that. You will be offered to purchase it, but you should not do that because cyber criminals behind this threat might not even give it to you. There might be no other ways to decrypt data for free, but you can always restore it from a backup you have. You should not rush to delete these encrypted files from your system even if you have never backed up your data too because free decryption software might be developed someday. Read more »
