Quick Weather Search Browser Hijacker

What is Quick Weather Search?

Quick Weather Search is a deceptive application that, according to the developers, allows users to easily check weather forecasts.

Judging on appearance alone, this app may seem legitimate and useful, however, it is categorized as a potentially unwanted application (PUA) and a browser hijacker. The main reasons for these negative associations are stealth installation without users' consent, promotion of a fake search engine (search.quickweathersearch.com), and information tracking.

What is check-out-this[.]site?

check-out-this[.]site is a deceptive website that shares similarities with edchargina.pro, forryortitwas.info, chainthorn.com and dozens of other rogue sites. The purpose of check-out-this[.]site is to feed visitors with dubious content and redirect them to other rogue sites.

Many visitors end up visiting this site inadvertently, since they are redirected by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) and intrusive advertisements delivered by untrustworthy websites.

Rodentia Ransomware

What is Rodentia?

First discovered by MalwareHunterTeam, Rodentia is a ransomware-type infection that belongs to the Jigsaw ransomware family.

The purpose of this malware is to stealthily infiltrate computers, encrypt data, and make ransom demands. This behavior is very common to ransomware-type infections. Note, however, that Rodentia is poorly-programmed and does not actually encrypt files. It simply displays a pop-up window that contains a ransom-demand message.

   
Forryortitwas.info Ads

What is forryortitwas[.]info?

forryortitwas[.]info is yet another rogue website that shares similarities with edchargina.pro, pushsroutg.com, and dozens of other deceptive sites. The purpose of forryortitwas[.]info is to feed visitors with dubious content and redirect them to rogue websites.

Research shows that users typically visit forryortitwas[.]info inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) or intrusive advertisements delivered by other rogue sites. PUAs infiltrate computers without permission, cause unwanted redirects, deliver intrusive advertisements, and record information relating to browsing activity.

   
Searchbaron.com Redirect (Mac)

What is searchbaron.com?

searchbaron.com is a deceptive website that supposedly enhances the browsing experience by generating improved search results.

Login To My Emails Pro Browser Hijacker

What is Login To My Email?

Login To My Email (also known as Login To My Emails Pro) is presented as a legitimate application that supposedly allows users to access their email accounts.

The appearance of the associated website (search.hlogintomyemailpro.com) suggests that this application is legitimate and useful, however, Login To My Email is likely to infiltrate computers without users' consent. Furthermore, it promotes a fake search engine (search.hlogintomyemailpro.com) and gathers information relating to browsing activity.

   
YOUR_LAST_CHANCE Ransomware

What is YOUR_LAST_CHANCE?

First discovered by malware researcher, GrujaRS, YOUR_LAST_CHANCE is an updated variant of high-risk ransomware called Nemesis. As with its predecessor, YOUR_LAST_CHANCE encrypts most stored files and renames them. This variant appends filenames with the victim's unique ID and ".YOUR_LAST_CHANCE" extension (hence the ransomware's name).

For example, "sample.jpg" might be renamed to a filename such as "sample.jpg.id_3057868259_.YOUR_LAST_CHANCE". Additionally, YOUR_LAST_CHANCE automatically opens a temporary text file ("temp000000.txt") and generates another text file called "_RESTORE FILES_.txt" and stores a copy in every existing folder.

   
CROWN Ransomware

What is CROWN?

CROWN is yet another high-risk ransomware discovered by Petrovic. As with most of these infections, CROWN stealthily infiltrates computers and encrypts stored files. In doing so, CROWN adds the ".CROWN" extension (hence its name) to each filename.

Encrypted data immediately becomes unusable. Furthermore, CROWN changes the desktop wallpaper and stores two files on the desktop: "Decrypter.exe" (which displays a pop-up window) and "HOW TO DECRYPT FILES.txt".

   
Qulab Stealer

What is Qulab?

Qulab is high-risk malware written in the AutoIt scripting language. The purpose of this malware is to steal various personal details. Note that the presence of Qulab can cause a number of problems including serious privacy issues, financial loss, etc.
