Most PUPs infiltrate systems without permission and, as well as causing redirects, deliver intrusive advertisements and gather sensitive information.

   
Finddirections.co Redirect

What is finddirections.co?

Directions Finder is a deceptive application that supposedly provides users with GPS functionality. On initial inspection, finddirections.co may seem legitimate and useful, however, this app is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and a browser hijacker.

There are three main reasons for these negative associations: 1) stealth installation without users' consent; 2) promotion of a fake search engine, and; 3) tracking of browsing activity.

Matrix Ransomware

What kind of malware is Matrix?

Matrix is a ransomware-type virus that encrypts various data stored on victims' computers. Despite this threat, Matrix has some flaws - it does not encrypt all files. Therefore, we assume that Matrix ransomware is still in development.

This malware appends: ".FDFK", ".TGMN", ".ABAT", ".DECP", ".YDHM", ".MDRL", ".[Kromber@tutanota.com]", ".QH24", ".NGSC", ".SDEN", ".MDEN", ".SCR", ".SBLOCK", ".GBLOCK", ".PEDANT", ".PLANT", ".CHRB", ".GMBN", ".SPCT", ".GRHAN", ".PRCP", ".FASTA", ".GMPF", ".THDA", ".NOBAD", ".GMAN", ".EMAN", ".CHE08", ".ITLOCK", ".KOK08", ".FASTBOB", ".NEWRAR", ".KOK8", ".CORE", ".ANN", ".[RestorFile@tutanota.com]", "_[LINERSMIK@NAVER.COM][JINNYG@TUTANOTA", ".matrix", ".b10cked", ".AG88G", ".TMS5", ".[MarkEvans333@criptext.com].[random-string].MKES", ".EG83", ".AL8P". ".BNFD", ".AL8G", ".DECC", ".MH24", ".TG33" or ".[RestoreFile@qq.com].MTXLOCK" extensions to the name of every encrypted file.

For instance, "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.matrix". Following successful encryption, Matrix creates a text file "matrix-readme.rtf" (newer variants create "#What_Wrong_With_Files#.rtf", "!ReadMe_To_Decrypt_Files!.rtf", "#_#WhatWrongWithMyFiles#_#.rtf", "Readme-Matrix.rtf", "WhatHappenedWithMyFiles.rtf", or "WhatHappenedWithFiles.rtf") and places it in every folder. The file contains a ransom demand message.

   
CryptoConsole Ransomware

What is CryptoConsole?

Discovered by security researcher xXToffeeXx, CryptoConsole is a ransomware-type virus that impersonates Purge (Globe) malware.

Be aware, however, that CryptoConsole only mimics file encryption - the virus simply renames files using the "unCrypte/decipher_ne@outlook.com_[NAME_OF_FILE]" pattern. An HTA file ("How decrypt files.hta") is then created containing a ransom demand message.

   
Datsadstrack.com POP-UP Redirect

What is datsadstrack.com?

datsadstrack.com is a rogue website virtually identical to ecoencomputer.com, comproliverton.pro, rakbler.ru, and many others of this type.

Most users visit datsadstrack.com inadvertently - they are redirected to it by potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that are usually installed without users' knowledge/inadvertently. PUPs such as this cause redirects to various other untrustworthy websites, collect data, deploy intrusive advertisements, and affect computer performance.
