Security researchers discover a new ransomware being distributed through the RIG exploit kit on Saturday. This ransomware has a strong resemblance to CTB-Locker, but does not appear to be related as it is programmed in Python.

Yesterday, Brad Duncan, a Threat Intelligence Analyst for Palo Alto Networks Unit 42, wrote a blog article discussing how the EITest Chrome Font Update campaign, which was previously discovered by Kafeine, is now distributing the Spora Ransomware instead.
