This one locks up files on a computer then demands payment to unlock them!


Another nasty to look out for so keep your AV up-to-date and firewall running.

Needless to say, it's another known vulnerability in Internet Explorer. TC.

Thanks TC. More goodies from the morons eh?

...it is only a medium threat and is classed as easy to remove. If your AV is up to date there will be no problems. click here From my understanding it is not as a result of a 'flaw' in IE but from hapless people opening the file attachment.

You're only open if you are unpatched. One of the vulnerabilities was disclosed 2 years ago.


Patch, Patch, Patch, Patch, Patch, Patch, Patch
