AdBlock Now Adware

What is AdBlock Now?

AdBlock Now is a rogue browser extension promoted as an advertisement-blocking tool (adblocker). However, instead of operating as promised, AdBlock Now runs intrusive ad campaigns (i.e., delivers various adverts). Furthermore, this software spies on users' browsing activity.

Since most users download/install adware products inadvertently, they are also classified as PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). Hence, AdBlock Now and similar PUAs can infiltrate systems without express user permission and/or knowledge.

   
Gru Ransomware

What is Gru ransomware?

Gru ransomware is designed to encrypt files, change the extension of every encrypted file to ".gru" (for example, it renames "1.jpg" to "1.jpg.gru", "2.jpg" to "2.jpg.gru", and so on), and create the "read_it.txt" text file as its ransom note. Like most ransomware variants, Gru blocks access to files and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them.

   
Pause Ransomware

What is Pause ransomware?

Belonging to the Dharma ransomware family, Pause is a malicious program designed to encrypt data and demand payment for the decryption. In other words, the affected files are rendered unusable, and victims are asked to pay - to recover access to their data.

During the encryption process, files are renamed following this pattern: original filename, unique ID assigned to the victim, cyber criminals' email address, and ".pause" extension. For example, a file initially titled "1.jpg" would appear as something similar to "1.jpg.id-C279F237.[python100@tutanota.com].pause" - after encryption.

Once this process is complete, ransom-demanding messages are created/displayed in a pop-up window and "FILES ENCRYPTED.txt" text file.

   
Fewergkit.com Ads

What is fewergkit[.]com?

Fewergkit[.]com is a rogue website similar to loloclicks.biz, leefmylife.info, hisurnhuh.com, substandid.space, and countless others. This page is designed to load dubious material and/or redirect visitors to various sites (likely unreliable and malicious ones).

These webpages are rarely accessed inadvertently; most get redirected to them by untrustworthy websites, intrusive ads, or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). This software can infiltrate systems without explicit consent; hence, users may be unaware of its presence.

Movie Bar Browser Hijacker

What is Movie Bar browser hijacker?

Movie Bar hijacks a web browser by changing some of its settings. The main purpose of this application is to promote the quicknewtab.com address (a fake search engine).

Zoom Conference Invitation Email Virus

What is "Zoom Conference Invitation email virus"?

"Zoom Conference Invitation email virus" refers to a malware-proliferating spam campaign. The term "spam campaign" defines a large-scale operation during which deceptive/scam emails are sent by the thousand.

Ufwj Ransomware

What is Ufwj ransomware?

Ufwj is part of the Djvu ransomware family. This ransomware variant encrypts files and appends the ".ufwj" extension to their filenames (for example, it renames "1.jpg" to "1.jpg.ufwj", "2.jpg" to "2.jpg.ufwj"). Also, Ufwj creates the "_readme.txt" file - a ransom note containing contact and payment information.

What is "The BMW Lottery email scam"?

"The BMW Lottery email scam" refers to a spam campaign - a large-scale operation during which thousands of deceptive emails are sent. These letters claim that recipients have won a new BMW 7 automobile and 1,5 million in US dollars.

What is loloclicks[.]biz?

Loloclicks[.]biz is quite similar to leefmylife[.]info, hisurnhuh[.]com, substandid[.]space and other pages designed to display deceptive content and open questionasble websites (it depends on the IP address of their visitors).
