New Computer Virus: Read Up...Makes you pay a ransom - November 15, 2013, 08:28 AM



Virus victim: I had no choice, I had to pay the ransom - WTOP.com



Long story short: Virus does not attack your computer but attacks your files. It encrypts all of you data files and makes you pay a ransom to receive the private key. Money has to be paid currently using BitCoins which at this current time 1 Bit Coin = $200 usd and they are making people pay 2 Bit coins. I believe you have 48 hours to pay before they destroy the private key.


SUCKSSS!!!!!!

Might just be scareware. I've used a program called Combofix on numerous rootkits that "locked" up the computer to the point where it was unuseable.

From my reading this is a real deal encryption.. IE. if you are infected, your data is toast. Haven't seen any real data on whether paying up will decrypt your files. Best bet it to have some backups and keep your stuff updated and have AntiVirus running.

Yeah this actually made WTOPs news desk. The person they interviewed actually contacted her IT desk and ended up paying the 400.00.

You would think the FBI or CIA would be all over this.

from what I understand is that it will encrypt your dropbox file upon sync...so unless you catch it before it syncs with your dropbox.

It'd be a royal PITA, but dropbox does actually version everything.

Our friend caught this Virus. The actual virus is easy enough to remove but the encryption is not easy to remove. As far as I know she still has an encrypted computer that is inaccessible.
