Bitcoin Now a Ransom Currency

A Ransomware is on the loose; CTB-Locker may be paying you an unwanted visit via email, containing attachment that is going to encrypt files on your computer, and then make a wild demand as ransom.

Victims are given 96 hours to submit a payment, otherwise all their files will be permanently and irreversibly locked. While victims’ files are in the lock-up, they are still able to view their files’ paths and names, and can even “test decrypt” some of the files chosen at random, a final tactic to convince the helpless victims that there is still hope to recover their precious data.

This Crypto virus demands 8 bitcoins in exchange for the decryption key. With today’s currency, that is about 2176 USD, the highest ransom demand seen yet so far.

360 Total Security can save you bunch of dollars by offering the antivirus protection that prevents execution of ransomware and other harmful attachments.
