I am not sure when or how it was downloaded but 2 days ago (Monday) my laptop started acting funny, so I restarted it...Then the real deal showed itself.  Every file ecrypted with a RSA-2048 crypto and how to pay instructions in 3 or 4 different forms.  They want $700 then $1400 after 7 days is up and wipe my drive if no payment is sent in 30 days.


So I came here seeking advice and I may have some things to offer up about the malware.


Let's talk!
