How to remove Cyber_Puffin Ransowmare and decrypt .Cyber_Puffin files

0
Cyber_Puffin is almost identical to another ransomware infection called Exploit6. Thus, it is very likely these two infections are promoted by the same group of developers. Likewise, Cyber_Puffin encrypts personal files and blackmails victims into paying money for their return. While restricting access to data, the virus assigns the custom .Cyber_Puffin extension to all affected files. For instance, a file previously named 1.pdf will experience a change to 1.pdf.Cyber_Puffin and become no longer accessible. Alike to Exploit6 Ransomware, the Cyber_Puffin variant creates a text file that displays decryption guidelines after successfully completing encryption. In addition, desktop wallpapers get replaced as well.

How to remove Exploit6 Ransomware and decrypt .exploit6 files

0
Exploit6 is a ransomware infection that encrypts personal files and blackmails victims into paying money for their return. During the encryption process, the file-encryptor changes the file appearance by adding the custom .exploit6 extension. To illustrate, a file previously titled 1.pdf will turn into 1.pdf.exploit6 and become no longer accessible. Alike in other malware of this kind, developers create a text file (READMI.txt) to explain decryption instructions. As said in this note, victims have to establish contact with cybercriminals by sending a message to their Telegram account (@root_exploit6). Although there is no further information about decryption inside the note, developers will more likely give it after reaching out to them. As a rule, collaborating with swindlers and paying money to them is not recommended - this is because there is a chance they will fool you and not give any decryption tool/codes even after completing the payment.

How to remove Mol16.biz

Mol16.biz is a scam website, that uses so-called "social engineering" to subscribe users to push-notifications in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge on Windows, Mac or Android. This is a browser feature, that allows websites to display their content updates directly on the desktop of the computers (usually in the bottom-right corner). This is widely used on blogs, news portals, YouTube and social networks to inform users about new posts, videos, news articles, friends updates. Mol16.biz exploits this possibility to show advertising. Wondering how this is possible? On the picture below, you can see the typical page, that may trick users into subscribing to notifications. The page shows up when users navigate shady websites and try to access certain content. This can be a video, article, file download, music or picture file. Mol16.biz offers users to click the "Allow" button using various phrases on the page, and at the same time calls a standard browser dialog window, asking to allow notifications. Technically, this in no way can block access to the desired content and this is just a gimmick.

How to remove Showmelinks.com

Users are usually entitled to seeing the Showmelinks.com redirect because their system is influenced by some unwanted program. This program could be installed without consent and now run in the background causing browser changes. Apart from Showmelinks.com, an unwanted application may also redirect users to other compromising websites that promote dubious or even malicious content. The unwanted content may consist of various ads, pop-ups, surveys, coupons, and fake alerts that claim your system needs to be updated or protected. Note that some webpages may also be able to execute special scripts that install infections independently of users' participation. Furthermore, if your system is infected with potentially unwanted software that causes undesirable redirects like Showmelinks.com, it may also be capable of gathering browser-related information (e.g., passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc.) and selling it to third-party figures. Although some of this information may seem insignificant, it can be enough to deplete users' privacy and cause other problems as well. We strongly advise you to take the necessary measures and remove the software that causes such changes. Follow our guide below to do it fast and without traces.

How to remove Ofww Ransomware and decrypt .ofww files

0
Developed by the Djvu family, Ofww Ransomware is a malicious program that runs extensive encryption of personal data. It uses popular, yet strong algorithms to put the stored files under severe lock. This, therefore, prevents users from succeeding in manual decryption. Knowing that users will not be able to recover files on their own, cybercriminals offer to decrypt data using their tools for a certain amount of money. The details that are presented inside a text note called _readme.txt, which is created after Ofww assigns new extensions to data. Specifically, it adds the .ofww extension so that encrypted files would look something like this 1.pdf.ofww. As soon as such changes are done, users will be no longer eligible to access their data.

How to remove Safe-web.tk

0
Safe-web.tk is considered an unwanted browser domain that claims to provide advanced search features for a better user experience. As a rule, the reason why users start facing such domains in their browsers is that they accidentally installed a browser hijacker program. This program is unwanted and usually installed in the form of a browser extension/add-on. Unfortunately, their functionality is under serious question and oftentimes brings only additional inconvenience to regular users. It is usually the case that browser hijackers generate sponsored ads and cause redirects to dubious pages that users had no interest visiting. Furthermore, software that assigns its changes within browser settings may also be able to track and gather personal information (e.g, saved passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc.) to earn revenue from it afterwards. Unfortunately, many struggle to delete an unwanted extension that led to such alterations. This is because an extension may be backed by a desktop application that works in the background and reassigns its changes in case manual attempts to reset them get made. Software that promote new tab URLs, homepages, and replaces default search engines targets popular browsers, such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and others as well. We advise you to use our guide below in order to perform the browser hijacker removal correctly and without traces.
