New strain of ransomware spotted in Europe, is your data protected?

A new ransomware attack was spotted in Europe that is using Dropbox as a delivery tool. It only takes one click to infect a workstation and a victim has just 24 hours to pay the ransom in Bitcoin, which is very aggressive. It’s called the “Pacman” ransomware.

The ransomware strain is highly malicious. Besides containing a ransomware payload, the code includes a keylogger and has “kill process” capabilities that shut down Windows operating system functions like taskmgr, cmd, regedit and more which makes it very hard to remove this malware.
