Locky on the Rampage...
No, this isn't a post about a monster of the deep in Scotland, although that would be pretty exciting. This is far more sinister.
It's being widely reported across IT security sites that the latest Ransomware out of Russia is highly active, with around 3 million incidents already reported and no sign of it slowing down. At present, Australia hasn't been specifically targeted but it's only a matter of time before this happens.
(UPDATE: 15-03-16. Locky is now being distrubuted in Australia. It's attached to a faked email from Australia Post. Do not open any attachment in emails from Australia Post. Australia Post have stated they will never send an email asking the recipient to open attachments.)
