PastaLeads Image
Read 27,625 times | Last updated on July 29, 2014

PastaLeads and PastaQuotes are adware programs that are commonly bundled with other free programs that you download off of the Internet. PastaLeads is an adware program that generates leads for companies under various search phrases. For example, if you search for health insurance it will display a form where you enter your information and then the program will send that lead to health insurance sales companies who will contact you. It will also deliver leads for other search terms that include tech support, car insurance, life insurance, lawn care, etc. Though this may sound like a useful service, the program can be intrusive and will display ads whether you want them to or not. Furthermore, any information you enter will be given to various 3rd party companies that may use that information for marketing purposes.

Read 24,850 times | Last updated on August 28, 2014

CTB Locker (Curve-Tor-Bitcoin Locker), otherwise known as Critroni, is a file-encrypting ransomware infection that was released in the middle of July 2014 that targets all versions of Windows including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Just like other file encrypting malware, the media continues to affiliate this infection with CryptoLocker when in fact this appears to have been developed by a different group using new technologies such as elliptical curve cryptography and the malware communicating with the Command and Control server over TOR. This malware also appears to be part of a kit that is being sold online for for $3,000 USD, which includes support in getting it up and running. With that said, expect to see other ransomware released using this kit, but possibly with different interfaces.
