A Closer Look at the Locky Poser, PyLocky Ransomware

To keep this blog moving, I want to talk about this article entitled: A Closer Look at the Locky Poser, PyLocky Ransomware and this article is quite interesting. Not only is this piece of ransomware going after some files we might have seen, but this particular article has gotten my interest because there are tons of file extensions I’ve not even seen in this list and a lot in which I’ve not even heard of. This is absolutely crazy!

Some of them are of concern, especially our audio files such as mp3, m3u, m4a, and other associated movie and video files. This practically makes a computer useless to get anything done unless you pay these folks. In the disability community, I don’t remember ever having an issue that takes a computer out except for the issues we discussed way back in 2006 on our third podcast.

I don’t think they will go after the biggest executable file ever, the exe extension. The reason for this is simple, they want a working computer so they can extort you for the rest. Thats what ransomware is.

Do you have thoughts? Lets hear about them.
