Incognito Start Button

Incognito Start Button

Have you downloaded Incognito Start Button after researching it and its services, or were you careless? Considering that this Google Chrome extension does not offer beneficial services – it simply adds a button to help access Incognito mode – it is unlikely that users would choose to install it. Instead, they are most likely to find this suspicious add-on offered along with other programs. If you are one who does not miss on freeware, you have to be cautious because many software bundles – even those offering seemingly legitimate and well-known programs – could be used to expose users to malware. Is the suspicious extension malicious as well? Unfortunately, that is not entirely clear, and that is why Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers are worried. Since there is no legal information supporting the add-on, there is a great possibility that it acts in highly undesirable ways. If you have no idea what we are talking about, you need to continue reading this report. If you do, you will also learn how to delete Incognito Start Button, and our research team strongly recommends getting rid of this strange PUP (short for “potentially unwanted program”). Read more »

Movie-Quest

Movie-Quest

Movie-Quest is described as a plugin that can provide a search tool with which the user could be able to look for movies and “all things Hollywood.” However, our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com tested the provided search engine themselves and did not find anything unique about it except annoying third-party advertising content that could be injected into the displayed results. To make matters worse, there is a chance some of the search engine’s advertising content might be malicious. Accordingly, the application was classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). If Movie-Quest does not work how you expected it to, we urge you not to waste any time with it and erase it before anything goes wrong. For manual deletion, you should have a look at the instructions located below this report, but if you wish to know other details about the PUP, we would recommend reading the rest of the text first.

Blackout Ransomware

Blackout Ransomware

If Blackout Ransomware enters your system, you might lose most of your personal data. The malicious application is a file-encrypting threat that locks photographs, images, videos, text documents, and other data created or placed by the user. The files should be enciphered with a secure cryptosystem, so to decrypt them you would need a decryption key and a decryptor. Unfortunately, these tools are available only to the cyber criminals who developed Blackout Ransomware. They may try to convince you to purchase them for a particular sum of Bitcoins, but you should keep in mind there are no guarantees they can or will keep up to their promises. Thus, we urge users not to trust the hackers and simply get rid of the malware. For this reason, our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com have prepared deletion instructions available at the end of the text, but before scrolling below, you should read more about the threat to learn how to avoid it next time.

CryptoMix ransomware

CryptoMix ransomware

CryptoMix Ransomware is a severe threat to your personal files if any of the variants of this vicious program manages to sneak onto your system. Our malware specialists say that this ransomware has become a growing family as several new variants have emerged on the web lately, such as Exte Ransomware, Zayka Ransomware, and Azer Ransomware. This ransomware can encrypt more than 850 file extensions, which means that you can lose most of your files in this malicious attack. Although some of the variants have already been hacked by malware hunters, and some free tools have appeared on the web to help victims restore their files, we cannot say this about the latest versions yet. Therefore, it is quite likely that you will have to say goodbye to your files unless you have a backup copy somewhere safe and preferably not connected to your PC. We would never advise you to pay the ransom fee to get the decryption key or tool because no one can guarantee that this will happen at all. What we can tell you out of experience is that cyber criminals rarely keep their promise. Even if they send you something for your money, it could be yet another malicious hit. Thus, we highly recommend that you remove CryptoMix Ransomware from your computer. Read more »

Only-news.org

Only-news.org

If you are redirected to advertisements hosted on Only-news.org, you have to think if it has happened once or several times. If it happened once, the chances are that you have clicked a malicious link or that a site you visited was corrupted, and you being redirected to the suspicious ad page is a one-time thing. On the other hand, if advertisements keep showing up in new tabs and windows whenever you are trying to browse the web, there is a great chance that some kind of a malicious infection is to blame for that. If you are not sure about this, you can always install a malware scanner to inspect your operating system. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team strongly recommends taking this step because you do not want to ignore potentially dangerous infections. If you do not remove Only-news.org-related infections right away, it is possible that you will get into more trouble. Because all kinds of malware could be linked to this threat, you might have to refer to more specific guides, which, hopefully, you can find on this site. If you cannot, do not hesitate to request them via the comments section. Read more »

RobinHood Ransomware

RobinHood Ransomware

RobinHood Ransomware is a malicious computer infection that wants to rip off computer users in Saudi Arabia. The reason it calls itself a “Robin Hood” ransomware is that the program makes it seem as though it embarks on a sacred mission to help the Yemeni people, and make Saudi Arabia pay for its supposed role in the war. However, such means of “retribution” are highly questionable, as it is obvious that the program has been created by cyber criminals. The criminals have been intercepted, and you need to remove RobinHood Ransomware from your system if you happen to have this infection on-board. Read more »
