A new ransomware that has been dubbed CTB-Faker has been discovered that impersonates the CTB-Locker Ransomware.  When infected, the CTB-Faker will move all of the files that match the following extensions into the password-protected C:\Users.zip ZIP archive using WinRAR.
.exe,  .msi,  .dll,  .jpg,  .jpeg,  .bmp,  .gif,  .png,  .psd,  .mp3,  .wav,  .mp4,  .avi,  .zip,  .rar,  .iso,  .7z,  .cab,  .dat,  .data


It will then create ransom notes at  C:\ProgramData\index.html, C:\ProgramData\your personal files are encrypted.txt, and C:\your personal files are encrypted.txt
If you are affected by this ransomware, do not pay the ransom. Helpers may be able to recover your files for free if you still have the original installer you downloaded.
