Search.nelrozplace.com Redirect (Mac)

What is search.nelrozplace.com?

Developers state that search.nelrozplace.com is a legitimate search engine that enhances the browsing experience by generating improved results. Judging on appearance alone, this site barely differs from Google, Bing, Yahoo, and other legitimate search engines, and thus many users believe that search.nelrozplace.com is also legitimate.

In fact, this site is promoted using browser-hijacking download/installation set-ups designed to modify browser options without consent. In addition, search.nelrozplace.com continually gathers information regarding users' Internet browsing activity.

   
MMM Ransomware

What is MMM?

MMM is a ransomware-type virus discovered by malware security researcher, Michael Gillespie. Following successful infiltration, MMM encrypts stored data using RSA, AES, and HMAC cryptographies. During encryption, the virus appends filenames with the ".0x009d8a" extension (a previous variant used ".0x004867") and creates a .info file for each encrypted file.

For example, "sample.jpg" would be renamed to "sample.jpg.0x009d8a", and an additional "sample.jpg.info" file would be created.

Once the files are encrypted, MMM creates an HTML file ("RESTORE_0x009d8a_FILES.html"), placing it in every existing folder. Updated variants of this ransomware add .MMM extension to encrypted files and stores it's ransom demanding message in GET_YOUR_FILES_BACK.html file.

8chan Ransomware

What is 8chan?

8chan is a ransomware-type virus recently discovered by malware security researcher, Michael Gillespie. Immediately after encryption, 8chan encrypts most stored files.

It also renames files using a specific pattern, however, since there are a number of 8chan's variants, the filename pattern also varies (e.g., "[random].supdec@8chan.co", "[random].recover@8chan.co", and similar). For instance, "sample.jpg" might be renamed to a filename such as "a87E5J=eeLi89Pf332Kna3rHlY.decrypts@8chan.co".

Encrypted files become unusable and indistinguishable. Once encryption is complete, 8chan creates a text file and places a copy in every existing folder. The name of the text file also depends on 8chan's variants (e.g., "HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES-supdec@8chan.co.TXT", "HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES-recover@8chan.co.TXT", and similar).

   
ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware

What is ANDRZEJ DUPA?

First discovered by MalwareHunterTeam, ANDRZEJ DUPA is a new variant of a ransomware-type virus called BansomQare Manna. Immediately after infiltration, ANDRZEJ DUPA encrypts most stored data and appends filenames with the ".ZaszyfrowanePliki" extension (e.g., "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.ZaszyfrowanePliki").

Once encrypted, data becomes impossible to use. After successfully compromising files, ANDRZEJ DUPA opens a pop-up window and creates a text file ("ZaszyfrowanePliki.txt"), placing a copy in every existing folder.

   
RandomLocker Ransomware

What is RandomLocker?

RandomLocker is another ransomware-type virus recently discovered by MalwareHunterTeam. Following infiltration, RandomLocker encrypts most stored files and appends filenames with the ".rand" extension (e.g., "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.rand").

Encrypted data becomes unusable. After successful encryption, RandomLocker changes the desktop wallpaper and opens a pop-up window containing a ransom-demand message.

   
Quick Searcher Adware

What is Quick Searcher?

Quick Searcher is a deceptive application that claims to enhance the browsing experience by enabling selection of text as a search query in Google simply by clicking Ctrl+Q.

This feature may seem legitimate and useful, however, Quick Searcher delivers intrusive advertisements, changes browser settings, gathers sensitive data, and misuses system resources to mine cryptocurrency.
