** Ransomware warning – “Bad Rabbit” masquerades as Adobe Flash update

Early reports of a new RansomWare that is spreading across the globe at the moment codenamed “Bad Rabbit”

The RansomWare masquerades as an “Adobe Flash” update/upgrade.

If you are asked to update your Adobe on any websites, please refrain from doing so, or, if an icon appears next to your time on bottom right, please refrain from updating.

The “Bad Rabbit” ransomware encrypts your files and requests half a Bitcoin (approximately US$400) to decrypt.

This is on a per PC basis and can be very damaging to organisations with large numbers of PC’S/laptops.

If you have been affected already, shutdown your PC and remove it from the network then contact PROCEED Tech immediately on 6424 8385.
