Exobuilder Ransomware

Exobuilder Ransomware

No doubt your files have been affected by Exobuilder Ransomware if they have the .exo extension appended and you see a black window claiming that you can no longer access your files because they have been encrypted on your Desktop. This window can be closed by killing the malicious process via Task Manager, but, unfortunately, it will not be so easy to unlock files encrypted by this ransomware infection. Yes, you will be told that you can unlock them by sending the indicated amount of money to the Bitcoin address provided, but you should not do that because you do not know whether those files will really be unlocked for you after you make a payment. Also, Exobuilder Ransomware will become a prevalent infection if all victims pay money to crooks behind it. It should be noted that the amount of money it asks from users might differ with every new version released. Most probably, there are many versions of this threat because it can be created with the Exo builder by any people having bad intentions. No matter which version of this ransomware infection you encounter, delete this threat from your system as soon as possible because it might encrypt even more files on your computer if you keep it active. Exobuilder Ransomware is not one of those sophisticated ransomware infections, but you will still need to put some effort into its removal if you decide to erase it manually, so we highly recommend reading this report till the end. If the manual method is not for you, you can eliminate the ransomware infection automatically right away. Read more »

Napoleon Ransomware

Napoleon Ransomware

Are you aware that spam emails can be used to spread malware? Napoleon Ransomware is one of the many infections that could slither into your operating system using this security backdoor. The bad thing is that this malware can enter your operating system in a clandestine manner, and you are unlikely to notice it at all. If you do not notice it, it can start acting in a malicious way without your intervention either. The main task for this dangerous threat is to encrypt your files, and it does that successfully using a complex algorithm. Although the infection does not encrypt system files, it can encrypt photos, media files, documents, and other kinds of personal data. The algorithm used by the ransomware cannot be cracked manually, and if your files are encrypted, they are likely to stay that way for good. That means that if your files are corrupted, they are corrupted, and there is nothing you can do to reverse that. That being said, you must delete Napoleon Ransomware, and that, luckily, is very easy to achieve. Read more »

The celebrated Christmas personage Santa Claus is not forgotten by the black hat hackers, which can be judged by Santa Encryptor Ransomware, a PC infection that appears to be still in development.

Globe2 Ransomware

Globe2 Ransomware, as its name may suggest, is the new version of Globe Ransomware that first appeared last year, in 2016. Although this ransomware program can encrypt hundreds of file extensions and cause severe devastation on your system, just like in the case of the first version, you can actually decrypt your files using a free tool. But this should not mislead you to think that you can take this threat lightly; it is still a dangerous ransomware threat that needs to be taken care of immediately. On the other hand, if you are not an experienced or advanced computer user, we do not even recommend that you yourself try to find this free decryption tool or use it, either. It is best to find a computer savvy friend or even a professional to help you with that. In any case, our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that you should remove Globe2 Ransomware as soon as possible. Read more »

Ransommine Ransomware

Ransommine Ransomware

Ransommine Ransomware is probably one of the strangest ransomware infections as this new threat does not try to swindle you and demand a ransom fee in exchange for the decryption tool or key. Our malware experts say that this dangerous program appears to come from "playful" cyber gangsters who instruct you to play a certain game for an hour to get your files decrypted. What's more, if you have this game installed, it may well save your files from encryption altogether. No matter how funny or playful this may sound, we are still talking about a dangerous threat since your files may actually remain encrypted and thus inaccessible for you. Hopefully, you have a backup in cloud or on a portable device so that you can use your clean files to restore them in case your gaming would not eventually result in the decryption of your files. We suggest that you do not hesitate to remove Ransommine Ransomware from your computer after noticing it. Read more »

Crypt888 Ransomware

Crypt888 Ransomware, also known as Mircop Ransomware, first surfaced in the middle of 2016 and our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com saw it again in March, 2017. We cannot say that it is still attacking users; however, we have found that this threat is available as an open-source program on the dark net. This simply means that it is only a matter of time when new versions start to appear spreading on the web. Although this ransomware used to be able to cause proper devastation encrypting your most important files, not long after it emerged, malware hunters also came out a free decryption tool. This means that if you have infected your computer with this older version, chances are you can still decrypt your files. However, if new variants hit the web, we cannot guarantee this. This is why it is always a good idea to save a backup of your more important files. But before you start decrypting your files or transferring your clean backup, we advise you to remove Crypt888 Ransomware from your PC. If you would like to learn more about this once dangerous malware infection that may be revived, please continue reading. Read more »

Ranion 1.07 Ransomware

Ranion 1.07 Ransomware

Ranion 1.07 Ransomware is claimed to be an educational project but it appears to be a complete lie. Our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that this is indeed a RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) sold on the darknet. This also means unfortunately that more and more variants may surface with smaller or bigger differences according to the particular buyers' choices and configurations. If this ransomware, any of its variants, managed to infiltrate your system, you can be sure that your most important files will be encrypted. Causing irrevocable damage is not the main goal here; extorting money from the victims for the decryption key is why this ransomware really exists. Although you may believe that paying the ransom fee will free your files, we beg to differ. As a matter of fact, it is always very risky to pay due to the fact that cyber criminals would rather disappear than send you the decryption key. We recommend that you remove Ranion 1.07 Ransomware immediately after you realize that you have been hit. Read more »

WantMoney Ransomware

WantMoney Ransomware

WantMoney Ransomware is a malicious threat that replaces the victim’s desktop image with a picture of a skull made from dollar signs and placed on a red background. Besides the skull, the new wallpaper might show a ransom note written both in Chinese and English. In it, the malicious application’s creators should ask their victims to transfer a particular amount of money into their account. In exchange, they offer a decryption key with which it is said the user would be able to restore all malware’s affected files. As you see, the infection locks user’s data with a secure cryptosystem to make them unusable. However, we would advise you not to trust the hackers as they could trick you.

ABC Ransomware

ABC Ransomware

ABC Ransomware is a new variant of Globeimposter Ransomware. Yes, it slightly differs from the original threat, but it still acts as a typical ransomware infection. If it ever slithers onto your computer, you will soon find your files encrypted. This infection locks music, videos, pictures, and other valuable files not without reason. The only purpose ransomware infections are set to perform the encryption of files is to make it easier for crooks to obtain money from users. If you already see .astra at the end of the majority of your files, it means that your data has already been locked.

If you do not remove its components from your system, you might launch this infection again, and, of course, it will not miss an opportunity to lock your new files when this happens. The last paragraph contains everything you need to know about the removal of this ransomware infection.
