Fake Windows updates hold your files hostage and demand money for their return — avoid this ransomware


In case you missed it, McAfee published a report on Monday (opens in new tab) about a new ransomware called Magniber. Not only does it sound evil, but it’s actually quite nefarious and vicious in how it executes its attacks.

This ransomware often masquerades as faux Windows 10 updates, and once an unwitting victim clicks on the malicious link thinking they’re installing a legit version of Windows, a file-encrypting malware is downloaded onto the target’s PC.

How does Magniber ransomware behave?
