New Deadly Ransomware

Hey Guys

A new deadly ransomware has been found by Emsisoft (link below): Trojan-Ransom.Win32.Linkup

I would not call it a deadly ransomware. It does not encrypt data. It sounds like it should not be too hard to disinfect it.

I would say any Ransomware was deadly. Especially one that turns you’re PC in to a botnet. Some people may not know how to quickly remove such infections, that said it also blocks the internet etc., if you only have one PC/Laptop you cannot easily remove it.

If the virus doesn’t actually kill anyone, it isn’t “deadly”.
