Virus and Spyware Removal Guides, uninstall instructions
Bestonclock[.]com is a rogue website, sharing many common traits with nmuandwishto.biz, ponugraduatio.biz, arrowhurt.xyz, and thousands of others. This page is designed to present visitors with questionable content and/or redirect them to different untrustworthy or malicious sites. Users rarely intentionally enter websites of this kind; most get redirected to them by intrusive ads or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). This software can be installed onto systems without express user permission. PUAs operate by causing redirects, delivering intrusive advert campaigns, and gathering browsing-related information.
GoodMorning is a piece of malicious software, which is categorized as ransomware. It operates by encrypting data to demand payment for the decryption. In other words, the affected files are rendered inaccessible and unusable, and victims are asked to pay - to restore their data. During the encryption process, files are renamed according to this pattern: original filename, "Id" followed by the ID assigned to the victim in brackets, the words "Send Email", cyber criminals' email address in brackets, and the ".GoodMorning" extension. For example, a file initially titled "1.jpg" would appear as something similar to "1.jpg.Id(045AEBC75) Send Email(Goood.Morning@mailfence.com).GoodMorning" - following encryption. After this process is complete, ransom-demanding messages - "GoodMorning.txt" - are dropped into compromised folders.
Ransomware is a type of malicious software that encrypts files, appends its extension (in most cases) and creates or displays (or both) a ransom note. MANSORY changes the filename of each encrypted file by appending ".MANSORY" as the extension. For example, it renames a file named "1.jpg" to "1.jpg.MANSORY", "2.jpg" to "2.jpg.MANSORY", and so on. As its ransom note, MANSORY creates the "MANSORY-MESSAGE.txt" text file in all folders containing encrypted data.
Nmuandwishto[.]biz is an untrustworthy webpage designed to load dubious content and/or redirect visitors to other rogue or possibly malicious sites. Users usually access such websites inadvertently. Most enter them via redirects caused by intrusive adverts or PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications) already installed onto the systems. These apps can infiltrate devices without express user permission. PUAs operate by causing redirects, delivering intrusive advertisement campaigns, and gathering browsing-related information. The Internet is full of sites like nmuandwishto[.]biz; lenglishiam.biz, helthtop.space, alfabet.fun, and bestdream.space are but a few examples.
Poteston is the name of a malicious program classified as ransomware. It operates by encrypting the data stored on infected systems to make ransom demands for the decryption tools/software. To elaborate, victims cannot access/use the files affected by Poteston, and they are asked to pay - to restore their data. During the encryption process, the compromised files are appended with the ".Poteston" extension. For example, a file originally titled something like "1.jpg" would appear as "1.jpg.Poteston", "2.jpg" as "2.jpg.Poteston", and so on. Once this process is complete, this ransomware creates ransom notes named "readme.txt".
There are lots of websites designed to trick users into installing some potentially unwanted application (PUA) by using one or another scare tactic. "Your Chrome is severely damaged by 13 Malware!" is one of many examples. One of the most popular scare tactics is to display a fake virus notification claiming that a computer is infected and needs to be scanned for malware with a certain application immediately. This page uses the same tactic for a different reason - its purpose is to trick visitors into allowing it to show notifications. However, it is very likely that its notifications are used to advertise PUAs, untrustworthy pages, etc. It is worth mentioning that it is uncommon for websites like this one to be visited intentionally. Usually, they get opened through deceptive ads, other websites of this kind, or PUAs that users have unknowingly installed on their browsers/computers.
Ponugraduatio[.]biz is a rogue website sharing many similarities with lenglishiam.biz, arrowhurt.xyz, helthtop.space, and thousands of others. This page is designed to load dubious material and/or redirect its visitors to different untrustworthy or possibly malicious sites. Users typically access such webpages inadvertently; most get redirected to them by intrusive adverts or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). This software can infiltrate systems without user permission. PUAs can have harmful functionalities, including - force-opening websites, running intrusive advertisement campaigns, and collecting browsing-related information.
Nhom10 is a piece of malicious software categorized as ransomware. It operates by encrypting data (rendering files inaccessible) and demands payment for the decryption (access recovery). Typically, ransomware renames files as it encrypts them. However, this is not the case with Nhom10; the filenames of files affected by it - remain unchanged. After the encryption process is complete, this malware displays a pop-up window containing a ransom note in Vietnamese.
Sspq ransomware removal instructions
What is Sspq?
In most cases, ransomware encrypts and renames files, and generates a ransom demanding message (e.g., displays a pop-up window, creates a text file, changes desktop wallpaper).

As its ransom note, Sspq creates a text file named "_readme.txt". It is common that different ransomware variants are part of one or another ransomware family. Sspq belongs to the Djvu family.
"Your device might have security issues" pop-up scam removal instructions
What is the "Your device might have security issues" scam?
"Your device might have security issues" is a scam run on various deceptive websites. Much as its name implies, this scheme claims that users' systems may be at risk and offer to prepare a list of recommended applications, which will supposedly secure the device. This scam aims to promote a phishing website targeting financial data. Additionally, it tricks users into enabling the rogue site's browser notifications, which are used to run intrusive advertisement campaigns. Untrustworthy websites are seldom accessed intentionally; most users get redirected to them by intrusive ads or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). These apps do not need explicit permission to infiltrate systems, so users may be unaware of their presence.
