Pipeline Supplies & Services CO.WLL Email Virus

What is "Pipeline Supplies & Services CO.WLL Email Virus"?

Pipeline Supplies & Services CO.WLL is the name of a legitimate company, however, scammers use it within a scam to trick people into opening a file attached to email messages. In many cases, scammers use names of legitimate companies to make their emails seem official, important, and so on.

In this case, they use this scam to proliferate the HawkEye keystroke logger. We strongly advise against opening the attached file, since it can lead to installation of software that is used to steal personal details.

   
Carbamylife.info Ads

What is carbamylife[.]info?

carbamylife[.]info functions like many other websites of this type including, for example, track.nuxues[.]com, talkreply[.]com, and news-jupiter[.]com.

These websites present dubious content or redirect visitors to a number of other untrustworthy web pages. In most cases, people are forced to visit these websites due to potentially unwanted apps (PUAs) installed on their systems and/or browsers. Additionally, PUAs display unwanted, intrusive ads and collect details relating to browsing activity.

   
Zfirst-news.com Ads

What is zfirst-news[.]com?

Zfirst-news[.]com is a rogue website, practically identical to redtext.bizjoophesh.comdancewithlittleredpony.com and many others. It is designed to feed users unreliable content and generate redirects to untrustworthy and possibly malicious sites.

Most visitors to this website access it unwillingly, as they get redirected by intrusive adverts or by PUAs (potentially unwanted applications). It is pertinent to know, that these undesirable apps do not need explicit user permission to invade their devices. Once successfully infiltrated, PUAs cause redirects, deliver invasive advertisement campaigns and track data.

   
Search.remakovell.com Redirect (Mac)

What is search.remakovell.com?

Similar to search.bannabell.comsearch.pardessov.comsearch.globalsearch.pw, and many others, search.remakovell.com is a fake search engine. At first glance, it may seem similar to Google, Bing, Yahoo and other legitimate search engines. Therefore, many users are tricked into believing that this site is also legitimate and useful.

In fact, developers promote it via the download/installation set-ups of browser hijacking applications. These rogue apps change browser settings and most have data tracking abilities. Note that search.remakovell.com records information relating to users' browsing habits.

   
Genieonews.com Redirect (Mac)

What is genieonews.com?

genieonews.com is the address of a fake search engine that should not be trusted or used. Like most search engines of this type, genieonews.com is promoted through a browser hijacker, in this case, a potentially unwanted application (PUA) called Genieo News.

Generally, browser hijackers promote fake search engines by changing browser settings. Furthermore, PUAs are used to collect user information. People do not generally download and install browser hijackers intentionally and are, therefore, categorized as PUAs.

   
Track.nuxues.com Ads

What is track.nuxues[.]com?

track.nuxues[.]com is designed to redirect visitors to other untrustworthy, potentially malicious sites or display dubious content. It is very similar to other websites of this type such as talkreply[.]com, news-jupiter[.]com, and videommm[.]pro. In most cases, browsers open these websites when potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) are installed.

Therefore, people do not generally visit them intentionally. Note that PUAs collect information relating to users' browsing habits and/or display intrusive ads. Furthermore, people usually download and install PUAs accidentally.

   
M3gac0rtx Ransomware

What is M3gac0rtx?

M3gac0rtx ransomware is a new variant of another ransomware infection called Megac0rtx. This variant was discovered by Raby.

Ransomware is software that encrypts files so that victims cannot access them without making payment. Like most programs of this type, M3gac0rtx adds an extension (".m3gac0rtx") to each encrypted file. For example, it renames "1.jpg" to "1.jpg.m3gac0rtx". It also places a ransom message on the desktop within a text file named "!-!_README_!-!.rtf".

   
Li (Scarab) Ransomware

What is Li?

Li is a piece of malicious software, belonging to the Scarab ransomware family. Once infiltrated, it encrypts data and demands a ransom for the decryption (i.e. payment for providing decryption software/tool). During the encryption process, it renames files with a random string of characters and adds the ".li" extension.

For example, "1.jpg" could be renamed to something like "07CaGB9Cq2nXlXb8.li" and so on. Additionally, while this process is active, the malicious program prevents Task Manager from being opened. After the encryption, Li creates a text file, titled "DECRYPT YOUR FILES.TXT" and drops it into all folders.
