Copyright Violation Alert Themed Ransomware in the Wild

Copyright Violation Alert Themed Ransomware in the Wild

RE: Copyright Violation Alert Themed Ransomware in the Wild

Interesting...........  But who (especially among those that are illegally sharing files) would fall for that??  They would be the kind of people that already have the mind set "to heck with you, I'm going to steal movies/music and I don't care what you say until a lawyer shows up at my door with a cease and desist order.

I've talked to a Comcast customer that got one of those "stop file sharing letters" and he just ignored it and put in some type of block list on his file sharing program to avoid known industry snoopers.  The dude had like 100 (pirated) DVD movies and tons of music.
