Prison Locker Ransomware – 2014

Prison Locker Ransomware

Prison Locker Ransomware

Previously I’ve written about Ransomware and how real the devastating effects can be for someone who hasn’t kept their data backed up and their machines as secure as possible with security updates, antivirus and antimalware programs. Of course, also knowing how the web works, how to browse the web and how to keep yourself safe is hugely important as well. Now we have a whole new set of ransomware coming out and it looks to be even worse. However, there is one thing new about this one: We know all about it, who is creating it, and how it’s being built (including the source code and some other cool info, like the hacker’s email, Skype, ICQ and other contact info).

 

While this article is long and includes several links to sources, it is well worth your time to read the article, click the links and read into those as well. You’ll be very surprised at the depth of information available.  If you’re an IT person responsible for networks, and you don’t read this and understand what’s coming down the pike, then you’re company will be calling mine to help save you.
