Citypage.today

Citypage.today

Citypage.today is both a browser hijacker and a potentially unwanted program that is introduced to Google Chrome users as an extension. The name of the extension is “City Page Today Home Page,” and it does not have an official webpage representing it. Instead, the developer, KDS Media, has chosen to introduce it via the Chrome web store at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/city-page-today-home-page/omjifaanlgiocfonnjlengeomjfhgklg. That being said it is unlikely that all users will acquire this extension from this source. In fact, it is more likely that you have let it in by interacting with an installer carrying a bunch of programs bundled together. Are you absolutely sure that other pieces of software installed along with the PUP are reliable? Instead of guessing or assuming, install a legitimate malware scanner, and let it decide if you have anything to worry about. Obviously, all pieces identified as threats must be deleted, and, hopefully, you will be able to find the guides you need here, on Anti-Spyware-101.com. Right now, let’s focus on the removal of Citypage.today and City Page Today Home Page. Read more »

Coperanking999.today

Coperanking999.today

Coperanking999.today is a fake alert website that can scam you and push you to purchase an unnecessary security tool or service. This webpage pretends to be a Windows error page that claims that your operating system got corrupted and tells you to immediately call the provided toll-free telephone number. We have seen in the past year very similar threats emerging that are also considered as technical support scams, including "Your Computer Has Been Locked To Prevent Damage fake alert," "Your Computer Is In Blocked State fake alert," and "Ransomware Detected." All of these fake alerts have but one goal: To trick you into buying something that you do not even need. What is worse, these schemers may also ask you to share your personal details or grant remote access to your PC so that an alleged fixing could take place. We do not advise you to do any of those because you could lose more than just the money you would pay for a useless piece of software. Our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com recommend that you remove Coperanking999.today and any possibly related threats right away and follow it by eliminating all other potentially harmful programs from your computer.

Hand of God Ransomware

Hand of God Ransomware

Hand of God Ransomware is a type of ransomware infection we have not seen in quite a while. It seems that someone remembered the workings of the old Ukash Ransomware and now tries to apply to the new wave of ransomware infections. The way this infection functions reminds us of the screen-locking programs we dealt with several years ago, but the ransom note and the money transfer method is similar to those of the encrypting infections. You can find the removal instructions on Hand of God Ransomware right below this description, and the most important thing to notice here is that you should not panic. Read more »

Cloud Packager

Cloud Packager

Cloud Packager is a malicious program that disguises itself as Creative Cloud Packager. Thus, while the user believes he is downloading a legitimate application made by Adobe, he actually receives a Trojan. Since this threat could travel with malicious installers available on questionable download web pages, the malware should be targeted at less careful users who tend to risk their computer’s safety. Soon after the installation, the user should notice how his device got slower. For instance, it could be difficult to open or close programs, browse the Internet, play computer games, and so on. Indeed, leaving such a threat unattended is not a good idea, and if you discovered it on your device, you should remove it as quickly as possible. To assist you in this matter, our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com have prepared steps for manual Cloud Packager’s deletion; you can use them if you side below the text. Read more »

Search.searchlfff.com

Search.searchlfff.com

Search.searchlfff.com is one of the newest Polarity Technologies Ltd. search tools. It has been developed on the same template as Search.yourpackagesnow.com, Searchyouremailnow.com, and Search.yourinterestscenter.com, and, just like these search engines, it does look like a legitimate search provider. Unfortunately, the appearance is not everything, so it would be dumb to keep this search tool and use it to perform web searches just because it looks reputable. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com are sure that Search.searchlfff.com is not exactly what it seems to be. In other words, it is not a legitimate search tool users should use for web searches, they say. They have put this search engine under the browser hijacker category instead because it makes specific modifications on users’ computers resulting in the altered settings of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome without their consent. It is not the only problem with this search tool. The next paragraph of this article will tell you more about it. The knowledge you acquire should help you to decide whether to delete it or let it stay. Read more »

Jhash Ransomware

Jhash Ransomware

Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have come across a new HiddenTear-based ransomware infection Jhash Ransomware recently. It is a nasty threat that has been developed by cyber criminals to obtain money from users more easily, so it will not miss a chance to encrypt your files and demand a ransom if it ever manages to slither onto your computer. The chances are high that this infection has already infiltrated your computer if you find it impossible to open your pictures, documents, videos, and other valuable files in a bunch of different directories. The majority of crypto-threats encrypt users’ personal files, but you can be sure that Jhash Ransomware is the one you have encountered if those files you can no longer access have .locky, the filename extension, appended. What should be your next move? You must delete the ransomware infection from your computer right away after discovering this threat. Your files will stay as they are, i.e. encrypted, but you should still not send a cent to malicious software developers because you will just encourage them to release more threats by doing that.

Teamo Ransomware

Teamo Ransomware

Teamo Ransomware is a new danger to your files if this malicious program manages to sneak onto your computer. This ransomware program mainly targets your default media directories to encrypt your personal files. This also means that if you keep your personal files in other folders, you could be saved this time. Still, it is always good to have a backup of your files stored on a portable drive or in cloud storage. Usually, such a backup is your only chance to recover your files after having been hit by such a dangerous ransomware program. This new threat seems to target mainly Spanish speakers; at least, its ransom note being in Spanish leads us to this assumption. Our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that it is important that you remove Teamo Ransomware immediately if you want to restore your computer. Please note that this does not mean that your encrypted files will be recovered. It is quite possible that you will lose those if you do not have a backup that you could use now to transfer back onto your hard disk. Read more »

Incognito Searches

Incognito Searches

Incognito Searches is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) available for Google Chrome users. It is advertised as an application that does not track the user while he searches for content he is interested in on the Internet. Nevertheless, our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com think the add-on not only fails to deliver what it promises but also is completely unnecessary. Google Chrome users can browse via the browser’s incognito window that does not save user’s browsing history, cookies, site data, or information entered on forums. It means you do not have to download any additional tools if you do not want to be tracked. If you wish to learn more of what we have discovered while researching Incognito Searches, we invite you to have a look at the rest of the article. However, if you came here just to learn how to delete this annoying PUP, we would recommend sliding below the text where you can see our prepared removal steps. Read more »

Snitou.com Redirect

Snitou.com Redirect is classified as a browser hijacker, which means that this application changes your browser’s settings without your permission. However, at a closer look, we can see that this intruder is directly associated with a Chrome extension, so it is possible to say that Snitou.com Redirect would not enter your computer if it were not for the extension it is associated with. Thus, if you want to remove this intruder, you need to delete the extension that brings in the potential threat. While you are at it, you should also consider running a full system scan with a licensed antispyware tool because you are bound to have more potential threats on-board. Read more »
