Mywebtopic.com Redirect

Mywebtopic.com is a fake Internet search engine that falsely claims to enhance user's Internet browsing experience by generating improved search results, as well as providing shortcuts to various popular websites. Judging on the appearance only, mywebtopic.com seems completely appropriate and handy. Yet it is noteworthy that developers promote it via deceptive download/installation setups that alter Internet browsers' settings without user's permission. Moreover, mywebtopic.com continually tracks user's web browsing activity. Research reveals that rogue setups hijack web browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) and assign new tab URL, homepage, and default search engine options to mywebtopic.com. After doing so, setups append targets of browsers' shortcuts with this same URL. Thus, each time users open a browser/new browsing tab, or either attempt to search t...

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. Commonly, ransomware viruses exploit the names of authorities including the FBI, USA Cyber Crime Investigations, and The ICE Cyber Crime Center - making fake claims that users must pay an amount of money (for supposed law violations such as watching pornography, using copyrighted files, etc.) in order to unblock their devices. 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 ...

Notorious Carbank Hackers Embed Visual Basic Code in RTF and Exploit Google Services

A group of hackers known as Carbank, who in 2015 stole an incredible $1 billion USD from banks, have been again using RTF documents with embedded OLE objects to plant malware on computers. They send these documents in emails using phishing attacks. Then they use Google services on the machine to plant further instructions.   OLE is an object (Object Linking and Embedding) in old Microsoft technology, still in use, that lets programmers create objects with relative ease, like push buttons, drop box lists, or to execute code that they wrote themselves in Visual Basic. Visual Basic has been in Microsoft Windows and DOS since Bill Gates and some other people wrote that when Gates was in Harvard. Visual Basic is one of the easiest languages to code.  But it is dangerous, since it can access low level functions, like copying files. VB in a spreadsheet is similar to a Macro, except VB is a full programmi...
