How to remove Search.chunckapp.com (Mac)

0
Search.chunckapp.com or Feed.chunckapp.com is another browser hijacker that ostensibly improves browsing by adding a new search engine. Such changes are usually supported by unwanted applications that can be installed via infected repacks and other shady downloads. After successful installation, the program will change browser settings and assign a new search.chunckapp.com search engine, alter the default homepage and add other "useful" features. The most dangerous about browser hijackers is that they are designed to gather browser-related information such as passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, history, and other data that cybercriminals tend to misuse. Thereafter, bank accounts/e-wallets can be hacked for revenue purposes. Besides that, settings manipulations can diminish your browsing by displaying malicious ads on each website you visit.

How to remove STOP Ransomware and decrypt .npsk or .opqz files

0
Being part of the Djvu family, STOP Ransomware is a file-encrypting virus that has been strolling around the web since 2017. In fact, developers distribute a plethora of versions that vary from each other by extensions, cybercriminals' e-mail, and other details. There are over 200 extensions that STOP Ransomware has used to attack the user's' data. In our case, STOP Ransomware appends .npsk extension to files so that they become encrypted. For instance, something like 1.mp4 will be retitled to 1.mp4.npsk and reset its default icon after infection. Sequentially, the program creates a note called _readme.txt that contains ransom information. Usually, the generated content looks very similar in all ransomware types. It only differs by insignificant details notifying users that their system has been infected and experienced data encryption with high-end algorithms like AES-256, RSA, or others. Thereafter, swindlers claim that you should spend about 980$ on purchasing a decryption key that will access your data. As a rule, the payment has to be made in cryptocurrency since it is the safest method to not get exposed and blocked by authorities.

Potentially Unwanted Programs are very annoying and cunning by terms of its operation. They secretly gather users' data such as passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations and sell it on platforms like the darknet. Also, the opened domain will attempt you to click on the allow button (to watch a video) which will result in a jet of ads appearing right on the desktop. Such ads may seem innocent and even useful, however, they usually contain malicious redirects to numerous websites aiming to spread other infections. Thus, to prevent seeing Private-show.live on the startup of a browser, you should follow free guide removal in the article below.

How to remove Dharma-Harma Ransomware and decrypt .harma files

0
Being part of the Dharma family, Dharma-Harma is a ransomware program based on AES-256 + RSA algorithms that are meant to encrypt user's data. After the virus gets settled on the system, it blocks multiple files by putting unbreakable ciphers. Once encrypted, files undergo a couple of significant changes. Firstly, the affected files are altered according to such pattern: original_filename.{random-8-digit-alphanumerical-sequence}.[e-mail-address].harma. Note that cybercriminal's e-mail may vary from person to person. Once the encryption is finished, Dharma-Harma generates a text file or image that contains ransom information. It says that your computer is unprotected and needs to be fixed. To restore the lost files, you have to contact them through the attached e-mail. After that, they will supposedly give further instructions and demand a payment in BTC. Unfortunately, those victims who decided to pay a ransom, often get fooled and do not get any decryption keys.

How to remove Ouroboros Ransomware and decrypt .odveta, .teslarvng, .rails or...

0
Ouroboros Ransomware (a.k.a. Zeropadypt Ransomware) is an extremely dangerous virus, that forcibly encrypts and blocks off the access to personal data. By doing so, Ransomware developers prompt users to pay a ransom (around 1000$) for getting a unique decrypting key. When infiltrating the device, it immediately starts rushing through files like images, videos, music, text documents and other valuable data that can be stored on your computer and encrypts it by using the AES-256 encryption algorithm. After that, ransomware assigns a unique .odveta extension to each file, therefore, making it impossible to open. For example, if sample.mp4 gets encrypted it will change the file name to sample.mp4.odveta. There are many other versions and variation of Ouroboros Ransomware, that change file extensions to .bitdefender, .harma, .rx99, .Lazarus, .Lazarus+, .James, .lol, .hiddenhelp, .angus, .limbo, or .KRONOS. Some of the recent extensions like .bitdefender, were created as mockery, because BitDefender released decryption tool, that, unfortunately, cannot decode latest Ouroboros Ransomware species.
