Bitcoin Ransomware Attacks Britain, Warns National Frauld intelligence Bureau
The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) warns about spread of new bitcoin ransomware.
Virus is contained in official-looking emails either from government structures or from reliable companies.
Users got malicious emails from Ministry of Justice, UK Home Office and British Gas.
“Official” emails from Ministry and Home Office pretend to contain information about forthcoming law case in the form of link or attachment.
Some anti-virus vendors did detect the attacks and stopped the links to be opened.
