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...

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...

The ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus is now disrupting business across the world, but apparently cybercriminals have no days off, since they're just as active as they were before the beginning of the outbreak. It appears they are now capitalizing on the fears of the people regarding the pandemic. It was back in January that the hackers started using the coronavirus threat as a focus of an email campaign that infected users with malware, and now they are expanding their operations to coronavirus outbreak maps that follow the number of infections and deaths across the world. Many organizations are feeling the pressure from these attacks, such as John Hopkins University who created...

APT Attack Spreads Malware Using Coronavirus Theme screenshot

The APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) group was spotted sending out spear-phishing emails that allegedly have detailed information about COVID-19, a.k.a. Coronavirus, but instead, they infect the victims with a custom remote access Trojan (RAT). The group is using the coronavirus pandemic to infect unsuspecting victims with a previously unseen malware. The malware is dubbed 'Vicious Panda' by researchers, with the attackers using it in a campaign at the moment. Researchers managed to find two Rich Text Format (RTF) files that were targeting the Mongolian public sector during the outbreak. Once the files are open, a unique and custom-made remote access Trojan is executed. It develops a list...

AntiMalware

A typical deceptive campaign is disguising harmful threats as legitimate security programs in order to steal money from inexperienced victims. AntiMalware is a particularly short-named version of this campaign, with clones with names such as Active Security and Total Security. AntiMalware uses an interface that is very similar to the Windows Defender and legitimate Microsoft security programs, to make the victim believe that AntiMalware is a legitimate anti-malware application. Observing AntiMalware's design, you will quickly spot authentic-looking Windows and Microsoft Security Essentials logos as well as a layout that may seem familiar to most users of legitimate Microsoft Security...

EmailCheckNow

The EmailCheckNow Web browser extension is not an application that will make a lot of positive impact on your browsing quality.

CollectorGoomba

CollectorGoomba is the name of a hacking tool that is offered as a malware-as-a-commodity on various underground forums infested with cybercriminals. The CollectorGoomba threat serves as a tool that will enable its operators to obtain sensitive information from their victims. The fact that the CollectorGoomba malware is available for purchase online makes it far more dangerous, as it is likely that multiple threat actors would be distributing it using a variety of infection vectors. This will likely increase the infection rate dramatically compared to having only one threat actor propagating it. More and more cybercriminals who develop threats opt to sell them online, instead of using them themselves. This makes a lot of sense since it allows the developers of the threat to generate revenue from it without risking to face the negative...
