New Ransomware attacks rising !..

In the last months an increase have been seen in ransomware attacks. All of the attacks are targeting some European country, so it looks like that all of them are related and the same cibercriminal gang could be behind them.

The last one has appeared a couple of days ago, this time it is targeting Spain. The file is using as icon the following Internet meme.

The worst thing for the user is that it actually blocks the computer, so it is not easy to remove. To do it, restart the computer in safe mode and run a scan with an antivirus solution that is able to detect it.
