PRLog - Oct. 17, 2012 - Today Australian PC users are also being massively attacked by a new ransomware program that has been prepared by hackers in order to steal money from unwary users by means of trickery, scaring and deception.  This is a special desktop (screen) locker that blocks the entire PC and doesn’t allow users to do anything with it. It then asks for a certain amount of funds to be paid in favor of the crooks that developed it. By the way, here is what the text of this ransomware says once it infects your system:
