The destructive infection in recent years is a computer which is called Ransomware WannaCry.

Where did WannaCry?

Where he did not know exactly, but we know it was built on the stage of spyware tools subtracted from NSA (SRI Americans) that the NSA used them for espionage. The tools were based on some vulnerabilities in Windows that NSA has not reported to Microsoft, were stolen and put on the Dark Web, where some ideas put them to work.

How does a Ransomware?

1. get infected
2. The files are encrypted ICI
3. You have to pay if you want to decrypt them
If you have two individual and three mooring selfiuri via PC, no big problem, but if you're a big company and across your database is encrypted, then ... .Oops - it's WannaCry.

What says the message displayed WannaCry?

In short, says 300 dollars to pay if we want to decrypt files unless ... .adio.
There was even a time limit, 7 days, then you can not decrypt the files.
After three days the redemption amount is increased from the 300 600 dollars as moneylenders.
Below is the message in Romanian!

        Happened with another version of Ransomware - encrypted files in Dropbox. After synchronizing the affected computer were encrypted and the Dropbox.
        Only 100% secure solution for now is to save data periodically.

    Virus "Police" does not change the extensions can hide files and appear on the desktop picture virus "Police", so you could not get into Windows. At that virus could enter the "Safe Mode" and can disinfect.
    But do not compare to this new virus, type "Ransomware" that is quite dangerous.
    Cristi Thanks for this information - it is important how to protect !!!
