WebDiscover Browser screenshot

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

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.

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...
