Securecheckapp.com POP-UP Scam (Mac)

How to remove redirects to securecheckapp[.]com from Mac?

What is securecheckapp[.]com?

Securecheckapp[.]com is an untrustworthy website designed to promote various scams. At the time of research, this page promoted a version of the "Your Apple iPhone is severely damaged" scheme. The scam primarily targets iPhone users, yet it might be accessed via other Apple devices. This fake alert claims that users' mobile devices have been infected and damaged by multiple viruses. It must be emphasized that no site can detect threats or issues present on visitors' systems; hence, any that make such claims - are scams. The goal of "Your Apple iPhone is severely damaged" and similar schemes is to endorse unreliable and possibly malicious software. Typically, these scams promote fake anti-virus tools, adware, browser hijackers, and other PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). It is noteworthy that schemes of this type have been used to proliferate malware (e.g., trojans, ransomware, etc.). Deceptive websites are seldom accessed intentionally; most users enter them via mistyped URLs, or redirects caused by intrusive advertisements or installed PUAs.

   
LegionLocker Ransomware

LegionLocker ransomware removal instructions

What is LegionLocker?

Ransomware is designed to encrypt files and demands a ransom payment. Ransomware victims cannot use encrypted files until they are decrypted with a specific decryption tool. Quite often, malware of this type not only encrypts but also renames files - it appends its extension to the filenames of all encrypted files. LegionLocker appends the ".Legion" extension. For instance, it renames a file named "1.jpg" to "1.jpg.Legion", "2.jpg" to "2.jpg.Legion", and so on. LegionLocker demands a ransom payment by displaying a ransom note in its pop-up window. This ransomware is another variant of the Cobra Locker ransomware. At the time of the research LegionLocker encrypted system files when other ransomware variants skip those files to avoid damaging the entire operating system. Therefore, it is likely that LegionLocker has flaws.

   
Charlie J0hnson Ransomware

Charlie J0hnson ransomware removal instructions

What is the Charlie J0hnson ransomware?

Belonging to the Maoloa ransomware family, Charlie J0hnson is a malicious program designed to encrypt data (render files inaccessible/unusable) and demand ransoms for the decryption (access/use recovery). This malware's discovery is credited to dnwls0719. As Charlie J0hnson ransomware encrypts, files are appended with the ".charlie.j0hnson" extension. To elaborate on how an affected file would appear, then one initially named something like "1.jpg" would be retitled as "1.jpg.charlie.j0hnson", "2.jpg" as "2.jpg.charlie.j0hnson", "3.jpg" as "3.jpg.charlie.j0hnson", and so forth. Once this process is complete, ransom-demanding messages - "HOW TO RETURN YOU FILES.exe" - are dropped into compromised folders.
