Combotab.com Redirect

Developers present combotab.com as an search engine that generates improved results and, therefore, enhances the Internet browsing experience. Judging on appearance alone, combotab.com may seem legitimate and useful, however, this site gathers various information relating to Internet browsing activity. Furthermore, developers promote it by employing deceptive download/installation set-ups that hijack web browser settings and modify various options. Following infiltration, set-ups hijack Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, stealthily assigning the new tab URL, default search engine, and homepage options to combotab.com. They then stealthily install a number of "helper objects" (third party applications and/or browser plug-ins). Users are unable to revert these changes, since helper objects automatically reassign browser settings when attempts are made to change...

How to remove “Your device has been blocked” ransomware virus from Android tablet or phone?

Cyber criminals have been spreading ransomware viruses on Windows-based computers for some time. These types of infections became popular in mid-2006 and continue to infect personal computers and extort money from their victims. Recently, security research began showing a rise in Android-based mobile ransomware infections.

In most cases, cyber criminals employ the Green Dot MoneyPak, Ukash, or PaySafeCard pre-paid card services to collect fake fines from unsuspecting mobile device users. Tablet and mobile phone users should be aware that paying these fines as ordered by these messages ...

Hackers Steal Money from ATM using Power Drill, Cable, and Laptop

Last year hackers were caught on camera using their smartphones to empty ATMs. The thieves stole $2.2 million USD before they fled the country. Nixdorf, the ATM maker, said three different strains of malware were found on the devices. Software on the smartphone enabled the malware. Security researchers speculated how the hackers were able to load the malware. Some said that networking devices on the device have well-known default passwords. Another said all you needed to do was attach a USB device and boot from that. Now hackers have done some variation of both by drilling an 8 cm hole into the front and then passing a cable inside and connecting that to a 10-pin connector. They then connect the cable to a computer and send instructions that causes the machine to dispense cash. Security researchers showed how the hackers probably figured out how to decrypt the network protocol used on the device. The researc...
