WebDiscover Browser screenshot

WebDiscover Browser is an adware threat developed by a Canada-based company named WebDiscover Media.

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.

CoronaVirus Ransomware

CoronaVirus Ransomware screenshot

The CoronaVirus Ransomware (also called CoronaVi2022 Ransomware) is a file-locker, which was released in the wild recently, and it seems that its author has opted to use the name of the Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19), which is a disease that is threatening users worldwide. Just like the disease it is named after, the CoronaVirus Ransomware also threatens users worldwide, but in a different way – it will try to encrypt their files, and also overwrite the contents of their drive's Master Boot Record (MBR). The latter operation may cause a lot of trouble, since the victims' computers will not load their operating system and, instead, they will display a copy of the CoronaVirus...
