New week, new ransomware.
A new form of ransomware surfaced in Russia, Ukraine and elsewhere this week. Known as Bad Rabbit, it's employed a leaked NSA exploit to do some of its damage.
Ransomware works by freezing up a computer in an attempt to force the user to pay a fee if they want their machine to be normal again.
