How to remove Thewowfeed.com

0
Thewowfeed.com is a suspicious page aimed to promote various ads. It does so by displaying a push-notification window asking to click on the "Allow" button. Originally, push-notifications is a great feature alleviating user experience. It helps you track news and other information published on websites. For example, if you subscribe to push-notifications on the New York Times, you will receive its news and articles right on the desktop. Unfortunately, because of the growing popularity of such a feature, some malefactors started abusing it to promote low-quality content for earning money. Displayed banners and ads delivered by Thewowfeed.com and similar domains, can be extremely annoying and dangerous since they might lead to fishing pages, adult websites, and other types of resources spreading viral content. Software with such capabilities is often categorized as adware. Sometimes, it can be hard to remove it due to certain values installed in your system.

How to remove SifreCikis Ransomware and decrypt your files

0
Developed by a group of Turkish extortionists, SifreCikis is a ransomware infection encrypting personal data and demanding a fee for recovery. It creates a strong cipher on sensitive data using AES and RSA algorithms. As a result, the decryption of files becomes hard to pull off, even with third-party tools. All data encrypted by SifreCikis obtains a new extension based on these patterns: .{random-alphanumerical-sequence}. For example, a file like 1.txt will change to something like this 1.txt.E02F4934FC5A. Then, after the encryption is done, users encounter a note called ***NA*** that contains ransom instructions. Unfortunately, the content of the note is hard to conceive for non-native speakers, however, a group of researchers translated it and outlined some key information. It claims that you should contact cyber criminals via e-mail and attach your personal ID in the message topic. Then, you will receive further instructions to purchase the decryption software (500$ in BTC). If there is no response from the extortionists, you should read the information through the link in the Tor browser. Malware researchers spotted the domain name starting with sifrecikx, which is consonant with sifre cikis (meaning "cipher/password + exit" in Turkish). Also, during the investigation researchers defined that SifreCikis could be a brother of SifreCozucu, as it looks very similar having minor differences.

How to remove Lisp Ransomware and decrypt .lisp files

0
Lisp Ransomware (a.k.a. STOP Ransomware or Djvu Ransomware) is extremely dangerous virus that encrypts files using AES-256 encryption algorithm and adds .lisp extensions to affected files. The infection mostly involves important and valuable files, like photos, documents, databases, e-mails, videos, etc. Lisp Ransomware does not touch system files to allow Windows to operate, so users will be able to pay the ransom. If the malware server is unavailable (the computer is not connected to the Internet, remote hackers's server does not work), then the encryption tool uses the key and identifier that is hard-coded in it and performs offline encryption. In this case, it will be possible to decrypt the files without paying the ransom. Lisp Ransomware creates _readme.txt file, that contains ransom message and contact details, on the desktop and in the folders with encrypted files. Developers can be contacted via e-mail: helpmanager@mail.ch and restoremanager@airmail.cc.
