ComboJack Cryptojacking

No doubt cyber criminals have not stopped developing Trojan infections hijacking clipboards because ComboJack Cryptojacking has been detected recently by researchers. This malicious application is very similar to CryptoShuffler – it monitors clipboards on affected computers so that it could replace the copied wallet address with the one belonging to cyber criminals behind it. Since ComboJack Cryptojacking is a Trojan infection, it tends to slither onto users’ computers unnoticed. Once it is inside the system, it starts working immediately, but it does not mean that you will see a program’s window opened on your screen. Most probably, it will take some time for you to find out about the successful entrance of this malicious application because it tries hard to stay unnoticed and performs activities completely in the background. This explains why it manages to steal users’ money in a short time. Even though this threat tries to stay unnoticed, it does not mean that there are no symptoms indicating its presence. You should find a new suspicious process in Task Manager if ComboJack Cryptojacking is active on your computer, and, on top of that, it should be possible to locate the executable file under the name NVDisplay.Container.exe in %TEMP%. If it has turned out that you have encountered ComboJack Cryptojacking, you must remove it from your system as soon as possible. Do not be naïve – it will not disable itself in the near future.

We say so because this infection locks victims’ personal files without mercy. This might sound like something new, but we can assure you – there is nothing new about this.

There is a huge possibility that you will not get anything from cyber criminals, so, please, keep your Bitcoins to yourself.

24stream

24stream

24stream could sound tempting as it promises the user will be able to find TV content right from his browser. However, the truth is you can locate such material just the same without even adding the extension in question. All you have to do is pick a trustworthy search engine and type in the right keywords in the search box. As you see, this add-on provides merely a search engine and to make matters worse; it might not be a reliable tool since our researchers report the software could be showing third-party advertising content among the results it may display. Under such circumstances, it is no wonder 24stream falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs).

Hpe Ilo Ransomware

Hpe Ilo Ransomware is a malicious file-encrypting application. What is unique about it is that it only attacks hard drives accessed via HPE iLO 4 (HPE Integrated Lights-Out) server system. This is why our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com doubt the application is widely spread. It is more likely the malicious program could be encountered only by some carefully picked victims and their work computers. We suspect this could be true as the malware might display a ransom note mentioning the user would have to pay 2 BTC for decryption. Currently, it is a bit less than thirteen thousand US dollars if you convert the sum. It is a considerable price, especially when often cybercriminals ask users to pay smaller amounts of money. After all, not everyone can afford spending thousands of dollars just for decrypting a few encrypted photos or other files alike. Usually, we advise users not to put up with any demands because there is always a possibility the hackers do not have the promised tools or may not bother delivering them. Thus, it seems smarter to ignore the ransom note and delete the threat. For more information about Hpe Ilo Ransomware we encourage you to read the rest of this article. Read more »

The extension is free, and so you might see no harm in installing it. If you install the first tool that offers something beneficial without doing any research, you are likely to run into big problems.
