    What is Enter A Product Key:

    Threat Classification: Ransomware/Rogueware

    Enter A Product Key is a nasty, deceptive and bogus and phishing pop-up, which first goal is to deceive computer users, that their Microsoft Windows copy has not been properly activated and to re-activate this edition of Windows, they need a product key. The Product Key is usually located either on the original Windows DVD box, or in the e-mail message, that was received together with the receipt, after you bought  Windows. The user is than asked to enter the genuine windows activation key or to call the Microsoft Technician Helpline 1-888-414-4284. Now is the time to make one thing clear1-888-414-4284 help line number is in no way affiliated with/or to the Microsoft Corporation, the rightful owner of the Microsoft Windows Operating System. Upon a closer inspection, on the malicious “Enter A Product Key” Lock Screen, you will notice, on the top-right is located an inscription Microsoft Technician Helpline +1-888-414-4284“!!! However, the “Microsoft Technician Helpline” has nothing to do with the Microsoft Corporation, the rightful owner of the Microsoft Windows Operating Systems. If your computer starts showing the most annoying and extremely strange “Enter a product key” Lock Screen pop-up message:

    Enter a product key
    Your product key should be on the box that the Windows DVD came in or
    Pin an email that shows you bought Windows.

    The product key looks similar to this:

    Usually means your system is compromised, hijacked and infected by organized cyber criminals or hackers. If you want to get your system back, quick and easy – our malware researchers & security experts recommend you to do a full system malware scan using the latest, award-winning anti-malware product SpyHunter 4. Now, your system is compromised and all your secrets are now in the hands of someone related to the organized crime – you should assume, that everything you’ve recently done from/on this computer is already seen by these highly organized cyber criminals. All these “Enter A Product Key” Lock Screen warnings were primarily generated by malicious browser extensions, brough on the user’s computer via some questionable bundle, that supposedly should install some popular freeware products, installed on your system by using a questionable, shady and suspicious software bundle, that supposedly should deliver some free, popular software. Furthermore, our security consultants uncovered, that these rogue browser extensions/add-ons are capable of infiltrating systems and taking over browsers without owner’s permission or other consent. Once activated the malware infection starts monitoring and collecting various private data, related to future marketing analytics and ads targeting, which includes usernames, email addresses, browsing history, browsing locations, SSNs, Real Names, Postal Addresses, Birthdays, passwords, Credit Card Information and/or other financial data or online bank account information. Finally, the whole batch of private data will be sold to some 3rd party company, which will use it for its own marketing purposes of course. Our security researchers issued a warning , regarding the “Enter A Product Key” Lock Screen, which  resembles very much a ransomware  this is currently one of the worst malware infections on the net, however it is not a cryptovirus, which is a must for all of the first class ransomware infections! Usually this type of infections are distributed via infected software bundles, however this is not the only option – a dangerous P2P network download, infected SPAM email, hijacked browser, malicious Adobe Flash ad or some infected torrent download could be the reason for this mess! The latest test results did show that when first activated, the malware infection will modify your browser & system settings, which actually makes the recovery even harder! Enter A Product Key is a deceitful, malicious website, used only by cyber criminals, black hat hackers and cyber crooks. The infection is compatible with all the well-known web browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Edge and Google Chrome. [Read More…]

    How to remove Cerber Ransomware

    What is Cerber:

    Threat Classification: Ransomware

    Cerber is a ransomware type infection, that infiltrates systems and uses strong encryption chippers to encrypt various files including .jpg, .doc, .xml, .avi etc. Cerber Ransomware uses AES and RSA encryption (AES for files and RSA for the private key) to make the decryption of files impossible without paying the ransom. Cerber changes the file extension to .cerber on every encrypted file. After successful infiltration the Cerber demands a ransom to be paid within the specific timeframe – usually, 7 days, failing to pay in the given timeframe will make the amount to double.

    During the encryption process, the Cerber ransomware creates 3 type of files – #DECRYPT MY FILES#.txt, #DECRYPT MY FILES#.html, and #DECRYPT MY FILES#.vbs. These files are containing step-by-step instructions on how the payment should proceed. Every folder, which contains encrypted files will have these 3 files. Basically, these files are explaining that the encrypted files could be decrypted only with a software, developed by these cyber criminals and they call it – Cerber Decryptor. The Cerber Decryptor will costs you about 1.24 Bitcoins, which on the current exchange rate is about – 1.24 x $650 ~ $810this is the price when the payment is made within 7 days if you are late – this will become about $1600.

    The malware researchers found something interesting – it appears that the Cerber Ransomware seems to be a danger to everyone except those living in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. This list is stored in a configuration file that also contains information regarding the files that must be encrypted or ignored.

    The ransom should be paid using the Bitcoin system, which makes the transaction virtually untraceable. Similar to Cryptorbit, HowDecrypt, and CryptoLocker, the Cerber will target computers running Windows operating systems. It was released by the developers of CryptoDefense in the end of May 2016. Unfortunately, as of now, there is no chance of decrypting the files encrypted by Cerber and the only reasonable solution is to restore your system from BACKUP. [Read More…]

    How to remove FileCoder (FileCoder.CR) Ransomware


    What is FileCoder:

    Threat Classification: Rogueware

    FileCoder is classified as a ransomware infection (or a trojan horse ransomware), and just like the Cryptolocker, Cryptorbit or Cryptowall, it will try to extort money from its victims, because it holds their private data hostage (encrypted). Filecoder overwrites your system settings so it could run in the background and will conduct series of tasks that would result in serious system damage or even data loss. The general idea is that cyber criminals will hold your private data hostage and would release it for ransom, which should be paid within a pre-defined time frame. Usually, these types of infection (ransomware) have gotten on victims computers thru some other malware infection, which initially had infected the computer and had installed some back-door program, which later will be used to infect the machine with the FileCoder.CR ransomware. The ransomware uses very strong encryption and once your data is encrypted, the only way to decrypt it is to use the initially generated private keys, which are held by the cyber criminals on their hidden command & control servers.
