There's a new piece of crypto-ransomware out there, but unlike most malware of this particular type, this one is mainly directed at web servers running on Linux.
Cryptowall 4 (although the number is not mentioned in the new, changed ransom note) is not drastically different from version 3.
Ransomware comes in various forms, and not all ransomware encrypts files - some just block computers until the ransom is paid.
A new piece of crypto-ransomware is targeting German companies: it's called Chimera, and the criminals behind the scheme are threatening to release sensitive corporate data on the Internet if the targets don't pay the ransom.
Kaspersky Lab has added an additional 14,031 decryption keys to their free repository, enabling all those who have fallen victim to CoinVault and Bitcryptor ransomware to retrieve their encrypted data without having to pay a ransom to cybercriminals.
