A new threat has been detected by Kaspersky and looks like it comes from the TeslaCrypt Ransomware Family. In version 2.0 of the notorious Trojan it is infecting gamers with a HTML page with an exact copy of Cryptowall 3.0's notorious ransomware program. After infecting the user it will demand a $500 ransom. If the user denies then the ransom will double.

Hi there,

It is best that you post anything related to TeslaCrypt in this thread:

New TeslaCrypt Ransomware sets its scope on video gamers

To avoid confusion I have asked a Moderator to close this topic.
