It's affected the Cadbury factory in Hobart. I've stopped buying Cadbury's chocolate now to avoid being infected. No-one would pay a ransom to release me.

A big threat to everybody and the chance to lose all your data!

Main infections via E-MAIL and attachments.

AVOID OPENING ANY ATTACHMENTS OR CLICKING ON SHORT CUTS!

Malwarebytes Pro provides a defence, too, even if you''re still running XP.
