LockedByte Ransomware

LockedByte Ransomware is a modified version of Deos Ransomware, which specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com analyzed some time ago (you can find their report on this threat on our website). Although specialists have detected and analyzed it recently, it could have affected a number of computers already. Most probably, you are one of its victims if you are reading this article. What you need to do if it is true is to remove LockedByte Ransomware fully from the system. Do not pay attention to its ransom note, and do not send money to get your files decrypted because they might stay the way they are even if you make a payment to cyber criminals behind this ransomware infection. It is nothing new that this threat demands money because all ransomware infections act the same – they try to obtain money from users. Do not give the author of this nasty infection a cent and better go to remove it as soon as possible. Keeping malware active might result in hundreds of security-related problems. Also, your screen will stay locked if you already see a window opened by LockedByte Ransomware, meaning that you could not freely use your computer. Last but not least, the ransomware-type infection might strike again and encrypt more files. Read more »

OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar

OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar is an application/extension that was developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. If you are not familiar with this company, we can inform you that it has released hundreds of identical-looking toolbars that simply promote links to different websites. Some of these toolbars include DirectionsOnline Toolbar, LiveRadioSweeper Toolbar, and OnlineMapSearch Toolbar. You can guess what kinds of links these apps promote just by looking at their names. This new toolbar is a little different because it does not use a toolbar per se. Instead, it showcases different tools by ZOHO in the middle of its interface. The toolbar is represented via the New Tab, and you might acquire it via the official website (onlineworksuite.com), the Chrome web store (nibodimenmckijbclhebhjempfbfaphm is the app ID), or a third-party source. Whatever the case might be, you should consider deleting it. If you are not sure if that is what you should do as well, you need to read this report. Once you know all the facts, you can decide for yourself if you want to remove OnlineWorkSuite Toolbar. Read more »

ScreenUp

ScreenUp is a suspicious program that is meant to help you capture screenshots. Although it works, that does not mean that trusting this program is a good idea. On the contrary, it is far too unpredictable and suspicious to trust, and Anti-Spyware-101.com research team strongly recommends considering its elimination. At the time of research, the official installer that should be represented at screenup.ru did not work; however, the program was spreading. What does that mean? That means that it is quite likely to be spread by third-party software distributors. Is that dangerous? It sure is, and you have to note that malicious distributors are often using attractive programs like this one to conceal or push users into installing much more unreliable and malicious infections. Though we advise removing ScreenUp, much more malicious threats might be active, and that is an important thing to consider. To learn more about why the app is classified as a PUP, and why you should delete it, please continue reading the report. Read more »

BlackSheep Ransomware

BlackSheep Ransomware shows fake system message to confuse the victim and stop him from interrupting the malicious application’s installation. According to our researchers, this infection should show fake Windows updates screen that user may receive after launching a suspicious file. The notification might look rather realistic, but some details show that it could be fictitious, e.g. a misplaced loading sign. If you fail to notice anything strange and do not interrupt the process, the malware should lock your screen and encrypt all valuable data located on the computer. The good news is deleting BlackSheep Ransomware can unlock the screen, and the bad news is erasing the infection does not undo the damage it already made. However, paying the ransom does not guarantee you will be able to decrypt enciphered files either, so instead of risking your money, we advise to use the instructions located below and regain the control of the device.

Oled Ransomware

Oled Ransomware is a highly dangerous file-encrypting threat as it can continuously lock new data added on the computer as long as it remains on the user’s system. Thus, in order not to receive any more damage the user should remove this malicious application at once.
