Get Coupons Now Browser Hijacker

Get Coupons Now browser hijacker removal instructions

What is Get Coupons Now?

Get Coupons Now is a rogue application that supposedly helps users save time and money by providing discount coupons for various online shops. Judging on the appearance alone, Get Coupons Now actually seems appropriate and handy. In reality, however, Get Coupons Now is categorized as a potentially unwanted application (PUA) and a browser hijacker. The main reasons for these negative associations are: stealth installation without user's consent, promotion of a fake web search engine, and data tracking.

   
Basilisque Locker Ransomware

Basilisque Locker ransomware removal instructions

What is Basilisque Locker?

Basilisque Locker is a high-risk ransomware designed to encrypt data and make ransom demands. What's interesting is that Basilisque Locker typically targets server devices rather than home computers. While encrypting, Basilisque Locker renames each file to a random string, as well as appends ".basilisque@protonmail_com" extension. For instance, an encrypted "1.jpg" would be renamed to something like "bnVldm9zIGNvbG9yZXMgYWR1bHRvcy5wZGY=.basilisque@protonmail_com". Encrypted data instantly becomes unusable. Additionally, Basilisque Locker generates a text file ("HOW_TO_DECRYPT.txt") and drops it in every folder containing encrypted files.

   
ERIS Ransomware

ERIS ransomware removal instructions

What is ERIS?

Discovered by Michael Gillespie, ERIS is a ransomware-type malicious program. Cyber criminals who create malware of this type use it to encrypt other users' files and extort money by forcing them to pay a ransom. Like most programs of this type, ERIS renames all encrypted files and changes their extensions to ".ERIS". For example, "1.jpg" becomes "1.jpg.ERIS". It also creates a text tile called "@ READ ME TO RECOVER FILES @.txt" containing a ransom message with information about how to obtain a decryption tool.

   
Guesswho Ransomware

Guesswho ransomware removal instructions

What is Guesswho?

Discovered by GrujaRS, Guesswho is a high-risk ransomware infection (potentially, a new variant of Rapid ransomware) which stealthily infiltrates computers and encrypts most of stored data. While doing so, Guesswho renames each encrypted file to a random string and appends ".guesswho" extension. For instance, "1.jpg" would be renamed to something like "3STT6YHZTC.guesswho". Encrypted files instantly become unusable and indistinguishable. Additionally, Guesswho creates a text file ("How Recovery Files.txt") and as well as a shortcut ("grupposupp@protonmail.ch") which automatically opens the email application and creates a new letter with Guesswho's developers email address as recipient.

Once infiltrated, Cezor encrypts most of stored files and appends filenames with ".cezor" extension (e.g., "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.cezor"). Encrypted data instantly becomes unusable. Once encryption is over, Cezor generates a text file ("_readme.txt") and drops a copy in every existing folder.

Astaroth virus removal guide

"Outdated browser detected" removal instructions

What is "Outdated browser detected"?

"Outdated browser detected" is a scam that recommends to update a browser to the latest version. Such scam pages cannot be trusted, since scammers use them to trick people into downloading and installing various potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) or visiting questionable pages that may be designed to promote PUAs as well. Besides, quite often pages of this type get opened by already installed unwanted apps. One way or another, we strongly recommend not to trust this or other similar page, and more importantly, not to download applications that they promote.

   
Traveldealscenter.co Redirect

Traveldealscenter.co redirect removal instructions

What is traveldealscenter.co?

traveldealscenter.co is yet another fake web search engine that supposedly enhances web browsing experience by generating improved search results. Judging on the appearance alone, traveldealscenter.co actually seems like a legitimate and handy site. However, it is worth mentioning that developers promote it by using a browser-hijacking application called Travel Deals Center, which supposedly helps users find various traveling deals. Travel Deals Center typically infiltrates computers without user's consent and, aside from that, both traveldealscenter.co and Travel Deals Center are designed to monitor user's web browsing activity.
