Uselessdisk Ransomware

Uselessdisk Ransomware

Uselessdisk Ransomware is a malicious application that displays a black window with a message claiming that files have been encrypted and, because of this, the victim must pay a ransom if he/she wishes to get those files back. We can assure you that this is a complete lie – your files have not been encrypted, but it does not mean that the entrance of this malicious application is not a serious problem. As has been observed during the analysis carried out by specialists at anti-spyware-101.com, instead of encrypting users’ personal files like a bunch of ransomware infections do, Uselessdisk Ransomware rewrites the MBR (Master Boot Record) and corrupts the partition table of the hard drive, making the recovery of the hard drive a hard task. Petya Ransomware is another example of ransomware infections modifying the MBR; however, in case of the entrance of this threat, users can undo the damage caused by the ransomware infection using the Windows repair tool that can be found on the OS installation disc. Unfortunately, Uselessdisk Ransomware is a harsher malicious application. Read more »

Mac Tweaker

Mac Tweaker is a new application that claims to make your Mac run smoothly, faster, and error free, too; however, we are not really convinced that this rather pricey tool is worth it. As a matter of fact, our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that this software is very similar to the questionable PC optimizers Windows users have been used to. This potentially unwanted program (PUP) has proven to be a rogue system optimizer for Mac OS X 10.7 and above to allegedly clean and tweak the system. Although this PUP claims "state of the art technology," we have found that it is very similar to other Mac optimizers like Mac Optimizer and MacKeeper. We do not claim that this program has malicious intentions and it does look all legitimate on the surface, but we do not believe that it is worth almost 40 EUR to do no visible or real change regarding performance. This is why we recommend that you remove Mac Tweaker from your computer as soon as possible. Read more »
