WebDiscover Browser

WebDiscover Browser screenshot

WebDiscover Browser is an adware threat developed by a Canada-based company named WebDiscover Media. Once installed on a PC, the malicious app makes a series of unwanted changes to all browsers installed on the computer, leading to a deteriorating online surfing experience. WebDiscover replaces the default home pages and search engines of affected Internet browsers with its own WebDiscover Homepage and WebDiscover Search, respectively. Furthermore, the malicious app modifies the “new tab” settings so that the corrupted browsers launch the malware's own search portal page when the user opens a new tab. Chrome users may not even recognize WebDiscover as an unwanted program and think they...

Researchers managed to find two Rich Text Format (RTF) files that were targeting the Mongolian public sector during the outbreak.

WastedLocker Ransomware

Ransomware threats often target unsuspecting users at random, using different propagation tricks. However, this is not the case with the newly uncovered WastedLocker Ransomware. It would appear that the WastedLocker Ransomware only goes after businesses located in the United States.

Pykw Ransomware

The Pykw Ransomware is a brand-new file-locker that appears to go after users at random. Instead of selecting their victims carefully, the authors of the Pykw Ransomware are trying to propagate this threat as far and wide as possible. The more users it affects, the more likely it is for the Pykw Ransomware creators to generate significant revenue. This new file-locker is a variant of the infamous STOP Ransomware. Propagation and Encryption If you fall victim to the Pykw Ransomware, your system will be scanned and your data located. This is done right before the Pykw Ransomware triggers the encryption process.

IT Ransomware

IT Ransomware is a brand-new data-locking Trojan that appears to be a rather basic project. This file-locker is also known as the CobraLocker Ransomware.

Propagation and Encryption Threats like the IT Ransomware often go after a variety of filetypes that are likely to be present on the system of every regular user. This means that the IT Ransomware will not spare any images, documents, presentations, databases, spreadsheets, archives, audio files, videos and other filetypes that are common. As a result of an attack by the IT Ransomware, the majority of your data will be encrypted with a secure encryption algorithm. Every file that gets...

Win32 malware.gen

Win32 malware.gen screenshot

Win32 Malware.gen is a so-called generic threat - a suspicious file fetched by an anti-virus scan that appears to be malicious but does not match any of the definitions of known malware threats contained in the anti-virus software's database. Therefore, an alert from an anti-malware program for a Win32 Malware.gen detection indicates that there is a 32-bit file on a Windows operating system that should be flagged for further inspection. An infection generally described as Win32 Malware.gen is thus a heuristic detection designed to indicate the presence of some kind of a yet undetermined Trojan horse for Windows PCs. It is also possible that files reported as a Win32 Malware.gen infection...
