A new infection is making its rounds that makes it so you cannot boot your computer unless you pay a ransom of $100 USD. This malware will modify the Master Boot Record of your computer so that it displays a message stating that your computer's hard drives were encrypted and that unless you pay the ransom you will not be able to access your files.



The reality is that the infected hard drives are not actually encrypted, but just not being made available until you enter a password. When this infection is installed on your computer it will move the infected hard drives Master Boot Record, or MBR, to another location and install a new MBR that displays a message stating that the hard drives were encrypted and that you need to visit www.safe-data.ru in order to receive help. The message that you will see is:

Your PC is blocked.
All the hard drives were encrypted.
Browse www.safe-data.ru to get an access to your system and files.
Any attempt to restore the drives using other way will lead to inevitable data loss !!!
Please remember Your ID: , with its help your sign-on password will be generated.
Enter password:


When you visit www.safe-data.ru it will state that your hard drives are encrypted and unless you spend $100 USD, you will lose your data. It also states that any attempts at tampering may cause loss of data. I strongly suggest that noone manually visit the safe-data.ru site as it is run by malware distributors and cannot be trusted to exploit visitors in some manner.

The truth is that this infection can be fixed without spending any money, so for no reason should you purchase the code. Instead, if you are infected with this malware, please create a topic in the Am I Infected forum in order to receive help removing this infection.

Posted: By Lawrence Abrams on Dec 04 2010, 06:10 PM - 35 comments- hemmi here again //// this little thing is to take advantage of those who are naive in the ways of computing or navigating threw mess of crap that is the internet we know today.something tells me if we had appointed governing body threw vote from those who like to see the internet cleaned up at all most any cost. This sort of thing would at least slow way down. no one from the corporate world be allowed a vote of course i am for a ""open"" and ""free"" internet .as you can see it is a very vital instrument as we speak it is sparking revolutions across the the middle east for example. in a perfect world the NET would be trouble free place to learn/ play /and conduct mom & pop commerce. but that will never be. if big corporate commerce & jerks like the one that pulling this little stunt. are tolerated..or hackers/or crackers that do something stupid over some little pet peeve of there's they have bug up there butt about. the NET will always be a pain in the but for those who just want to come and enjoy it.or just conduct there daily affairs.
