New Fraudulent GarrantyDecrypt Ransomware Variant Illegally Using the SpyHunter 5 App Name
Variation of GarrantyDecrypt ransomware attempts to extort computer users and masquerade as the legitimate SpyHunter 5 anti-malware application.
The ransomware found to be the culprit in making a fraudulent version of EnigmaSoft's legitimate SpyHunter 5 application is a variant of GarrantyDecrypt which is a known ransomware that utilizes advanced methods to attack infected systems, ultimately making demands to the victimized computer user through a ransom note.
The many false claims made by the GarrantyDecrypt ransomware variant's ransom note are an indication of how outlandish hackers have become. Hackers have leveraged the use of legitimate companies and applications in the past, forcing companies to release clarifications to protect users and their apps. The coercion of malicious scams is a common practice among hackers who seek to leverage legitimate entities to peddle the hackers' malevolent agenda.
In its efforts to help PC users protect their computers from emerging malware and assist with the removal of malicious threats, EnigmaSoft will continue to call out all malware that makes a mockery of or illegally uses or leverages its legitimate SpyHunter 5 anti-malware application in any way.
