At my office we've been awaiting a fedex shipment for backordered supplies we've badly needed.
An email from "Fedex" hit the email account yesterday morning and three different people opened it to see when our stuff will arrive, and, well....
Three of my five office PC's are now infected with Locky.Osiris.
We're backed up and no data is lost. it's just a pain in the ass.
I tried to boot the infected machines to USB and CD with DBAN ready to go and they won't boot.
They boot fine to the infected drives, but to nothing else.
I've taken the infected drives and installed them as data drives in backup PC's.
It's weird, none of those PC's will boot with the infected drives installed. Can't boot to C, and can't boot to USB or CD with DBAN media.
Locky killed my data and seems to have also killed the hardware.
This is my first experience with Ransomware. Is it normal for HDD's to become unbootable?
I'd love to get my hands on the pissant coward loser jackholes who have done this to me.
