Beware of a new cryptolocker scam!


I’m sure most of you have heard of cryptolocker scams. For those who have not: cryptolocker is a type of Ransomware Trojan. It is a malware which encrypts data on the infected computer and forces users to pay a ransom in order to get their data back.

A new cryptolocker scam is doing the rounds, spreading via an email which looks like coming from the Australian Federal Police. The email looks like an infringement notice and tricks users to go to a web site and download a zip file.

Be warned not to open such emails and not to click on any links in such emails!
