I can confirm a friend's email reply to a car ad on www.gumtree.com.au when he emailed the seller for more detailed information on the car. The email reply had malware, as an attachment, and malware javascript, embedded in an email. My friend, then emailed the seller to inform him that his computer was infected with a virus. The seller just replied back, saying that all is okay and sent malware again.

A repository of all current knowledge regarding Cryptolocker is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this tutorial: CryptoLocker Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

There is also a lengthy ongoing discussion in this topic: Cryptolocker Hijack Program. Since this infection is so widespread, rather than have everyone start individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any questions, comments or requests for assistance in that topic discussion.

Thanks
