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...

The Shlayer Trojan is a cyber-threat aimed at Mac users who might be interested in trying out application stores other than the official App Store by Apple. The Shlayer Trojan might be promoted to the users as an independent application delivery platform that offers discounts on premium software.

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...

Hackers Spreading Malware via Coronavirus Maps Online screenshot

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...

PlusAbout

The PlusAbout application is an adware program that targets Mac users. The PlusAbout utility is a tool that is likely delivered via low-quality software bundles or bogus application installers. This dodgy application may claim to enhance your browsing quality but will do none of the sorts. The purpose of the PlusAbout application is to hijack your Web browser. When the PlusAbout application is installed on your Mac, it will go behind your back to change your Web browser's settings.

'Server Notification' Email Scam

Email tactics have been around for, pretty much, as long as the Internet has been around. However, this remains to be one of the favorite distribution methods for online fraudsters and malware developers alike. One of the latest phishing campaigns that came to the attention of malware researchers is the 'Server Notification' email spam. It is likely that users of Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo Mail are all targeted by the 'Server Notification' email spam. The 'Server Notification' email spam attempts to trick users into launching a phishing page, which requires them to fill in the login credentials for their email account. The message of the 'Server Notification' email spam states that users need to provide their login credentials because otherwise, their inbox will be wiped out. To further urge users, the 'Server Notification' email spam...

flowEncryption Ransomware

Cybersecurity analysts have uncovered a new data-encrypting Trojan lurking on the Web. The name of this threat is flowEncryption Ransomware. The flowEncryption Ransomware is not a very complex project, and according to malware researchers, the threat is yet to claim any victims. This probably is due to the fact that this appears to be a data-locker created for testing and not for real campaigns. Despite the fact that the flowEncryption Ransomware has not yet been used to target users, it is capable of encrypting various filetypes. It is likely that this file-locker would target documents, images, audio files, videos, presentations, spreadsheets, archives, databases, etc. The files that the flowEncryption Ransomware encrypts would receive a new extension appended to their filenames –' .flowEncryption.' This means that a file named...

Wholocked Ransomware

The Wholocked Ransomware is yet another data-locker that is designed to prey on regular users online. The goal of this threat is to breach your system, use an encryption algorithm to lock your files, and then intimidate you into paying for a decryption tool. Propagation and Encryption The Wholocked Ransomware is designed to go after popular filetypes. This means that if the Wholocked Ransomware compromises your PC, it will target all your documents, audio files, images, videos, databases, presentations, archives, spreadsheets and other files. When the Wholocked Ransomware determines what files are present on your system, it will trigger the encryption process. All the compromised files will be marked with a new extension that the Wholocked Ransomware appends to their filenames – '.wholocked.' For example, if a file was named...

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. Despite not being a very high-end threat, the IT Ransomware is fully capable of causing significant damage to its targets. Unfortunately, the IT Ransomware does not appear to be decryptable for free. 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...

'.google File Extension' Ransomware

Many cyber crooks have been experimenting and trying to develop successful malware using Google's Go programming language. One of the newest examples of this is the '.google File Extension' Ransomware. This file-locker also is known as the GoGoogle Ransomware and the BossiTossi Ransomware. Just like most Go-based malware, the '.google File Extension' Ransomware is not very successful. This data-encrypting Trojan is decryptable for free that eliminates the need to contact the cyber crooks who created it entirely. Propagation and Encryption As soon as the '.google File Extension' Ransomware infects your computer, it will modify the Windows settings to eliminate the System Restore service, as well as wipe out the Shadow Volume Copies. File-lockers often take this approach to make data-recovery very difficult. The '.google File Extension'...

Aris Ransomware

The Aris Ransomware is a nasty Trojan, whose goal is to infiltrate your PC, encrypt your data, and demand a ransom to revert the damage done to your files. Malware analysts have come across the Aris Ransomware only recently. The Aris Ransomware does not appear to belong to any of the well-known ransomware families. Propagation and Encryption The purpose of the Aris Ransomware is to encrypt as many files as possible once it compromises your computer. This is why this Trojan will make sure to lock .png, .jpeg, .jpg, .gif, .svg, .pdf, .docx, .doc, .txt, .ppt, .pptx, .xls, .xlsx, .db, .zip, .rar, .mp3, .midi, .mid, .wav, .webm. .mp4, .mov, and a wide variety of other files that are present on your system.
