GamingCandy Adware

The GamingCandy app claims to allow users to play various addictive flash games - "The GamingCandy Application (the "Application) allows you to play special free games that are not available unless the application is installed." These claims often trick users into believing that GamingCandy is a legitimate and useful application. In fact, it is categorized as adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). The main reason for these negative associations is stealth installation - GamingCandy usually installs on systems without users' permission. After infiltrating the system, this PUP displays intrusive online advertisements and collects various Internet browsing-related information. GamingCandy employs a virtual layer to display intrusive online advertisements on any website visited. Some of these ads are opened in new browser tabs or windows. The virtual layer allows placement of content that does not ...

Your Browser Has Been Blocked Virus

"Your browser has been blocked," "All activities on this computer have been recorded", and "All your files are encrypted" are messages that can appear whilst browsing the Internet. Note that these messages are not legitimate. Browser blocking pop-ups, demanding payment of $300, 200 GBP, or 200 Euro fines (using Ukash, PaySafeCard or GreenDot MoneyPak) to unlock computers, are not associated with any legitimate authorities. The messages are created by cyber criminals with the intention of stealing money from unsuspecting Internet users. Paying fines demanded by these browser-blocking messages is equivalent to sending money directly to cyber criminals. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari blocking messages are called ransomware viruses. Commonly, cyber criminals responsible for creating these scams, exploit the names of various authorities worldwide (For example, the FBI, EUR...

Stealthy Malware Hides in Image Files

As PC users become increasingly vigilant when it comes to protecting themselves from a constant onslaught of malware threats, hackers keep coming up with clever new ways to sneak past antivirus solutions and install malware on PCs around the world. In addition to creating new ways of distributing malware, hackers have also become increasingly adept at preventing security researchers from reverse engineering many new strains of malware by using a series of basic checks on an infected system to ensure it isn’t a sandbox analysis environment. A new form of malware, known as Stegoloader, combines a new way to deliver its malicious payload with anti-detection tools that have made it difficult for security researchers to figure out exactly how it works. Although Stegoloader is only becoming a serious threat to PC users at this time, the malware was actually first discovered in 2013. This is in part due to how well t...
