New Petya Ransomware Encrypts Whole Hard Drives

March 27, 2016

The different types of ransomware keep on continuing! Now there is a new one that infects a computer via a Trojan and when rebooting makes it look like you are doing a chkdsk on your computer where as it actually is encrypting the how disk! Lovely!  It is relatively easy to protect yourself, just don’t use a local Administrator account and it can’t infect you.

Still this seems worryingly easy to me
