Widespread Ransomware Attack Targets Microsoft Office 365 Users – Infosecurity Magazine
A nasty ransomware is at the heart of a widespread attack on Microsoft 365 users.
The virus, called Cerber, is spread through email and, like other ransomware, encrypts users’ files and demands payment in order to unlock them. It plays an audio file informing the user that the computer’s files have been encrypted, while a warning message was displayed on screen. The ransom is set at 1.24 bitcoins or about $500.
