How to remove CoronaLock Ransomware and decrypt .pandemic, .corona-lock or .biglock...

0
Discovered in 2020, CoronaLock restricts access to users' data by encrypting it with ChaCha, AES and RSA algorithms. Files compromised by this ransomware, experience a change in extension to either .pandemic, .corona-lock or .biglock. For example, if 1.mp4 gets modified by the virus, it will migrate to 1.mp4.corona-lock or 1.mp4.biglock. After this, extortionists display ransom information in the note (!!!READ_ME!!!.TXT or README_LOCK.TXT) that is dropped on the desktop. Interestingly enough, people who get attacked with ".biglock" extension, do not have any contact information in the ransom note to connect with cybercriminals. It seems like its developers forgot to include it before the release. In the meantime, ".corona-lock" versions do not have that drawback and contain e-mail in the text file. If you want to take a test-decryption, you are free to send them one file.

To prevent leaks of passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, banking details, and other precious data, you should delete adware that causes Mol6.biz redirects.

How to remove Django Ransomware and decrypt .djang0unchain3d files

0
Being categorized as ransomware-infection, Django is not a virus to be trifle with. As soon as it drops on your PC, it causes havoc around personal data by encrypting with special algorithms that do not allow third-parties tools to have any argument in the future. During data encryption, your files get altered with the .djang0unchain3d extension. This means that a file like 1.mp4 will be changed to 1.mp4.djang0unchain3d and reset its original icon. It seems like developers inspired a Hollywood movie called "Django Unchained" and decided to borrow its name. Once the encryption gets to a close, victims are presented with ransom instructions in Readme.txt that explain how to decrypt your data. Cybercriminals say that in order to retrieve your files, you should contact them via the attached e-mail address and include your ID. If you do not get an answer within 24 hours, you should write to another e-mail mentioned in the note. After this, extortionists will ask you to purchase the decryption key via the BTC wallet which will help you restore access to blocked data eventually.

How to remove Yahoo Toolbar

0
Yahoo Toolbar is a legitimate add-on designed for popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. It is used to improve browser capabilities by adding quick-access links and widgets to enter Facebook, e-mail, news, and other resources without leaving the homepage. Having such a range of functions contained on a single page can save a lot of time and enhance browsing experience significantly. However, you should keep in mind that there are many fake applications that mimic Yahoo Toolbar in order to generate unwanted ads and redirects to malicious pages. The most obvious ring that could hint on the presence of unwanted software is when it appears on your system without consent. Trying to brawl with unwanted programs on your own can only lead to a stalemate. This is because they change certain values that prevent users from manual removal.

How to remove Dharma-2020 Ransomware and decrypt .2020 files

0
Discovered recently, Dharma-2020 is a ransomware program that uses strong cryptographic algorithms to block data and demand to pay a ransom. After the virus attacks your computer, it instantly ciphers the stored files by retitling them with a criminal's e-mail address and other symbols. For example, 1.mp4 will be renamed into something like 1.mp4.id-{random-8-digit-alphanumerical-sequence}.[btckeys@aol.com].2020. After successful encryption, the program shows a message window and creates a ransom note called FILES ENCRYPTED.txt. The malware locks any attempts to decrypt your files and to use certain security programs. Then, Dharma-2020 Ransomware does a pure classic asking users to pay a ransom in BTC (from $50 to $500) and send a paycheck to their e-mail after which, they will give you a decryption program.

How to remove Internet Download Manager

0
Owned by American company Tonec, Internet Download Manager (IDM) is a legitimate tool designed to improve the way you download files from the web. It increases download speed by using an in-built logic accelerator, resume, and schedule downloads. It might remind you of another desktop downloader called uTorrent that is used for similar purposes. Unfortunately, there are some programs that mimic such capabilities to hide unwanted activity. For example, if you have received Internet Download Manager without consent, chances are that your system is being exploited by Potentially Unwanted Software. Programs that duplicate functions of legitimate software tend to generate shady ads and spy on personal data to snatch it for revenue purposes.
