Ransomware scares victims with child sex abuse images
SophosLabs has received a number of disturbing reports from German computer users about a ransomware malware attack that is locking computer screens, and demanding payment of a fine.
Like other ransomware attacks, a message appears claiming to come from the police that says that evidence gathered proves that the computer has been used to view pornography involving minors.
Unlike most attacks, however, the warning message also includes images of the purported sexual abuse of children, along with the minors' names, dates of birth and location.
