Samba Ransomware
« on: May 02, 2019, 02:44:28 PM »
A new form of ransomware is out. It encrypts samba shares which are not password protected, and does so remotely. It avoids using local encryption which would be detected and blocked by a PC virus checker. 
So just a heads up if your player is on a lan with internet access.

It got my USB drive attached to my router.

Encrypted files have the extension

Emisofts Megalocker decrypter will decrypt them using USB mode and a PC.
