The Globe3 Ransomware only infects Windows computers. It will encrypt a victim’s files and then display a ransom note. If the computer owner doesn’t pay, the files are locked up forever, unless that owner has backup copies of the files made before the computer was infected with Globe3.
Comment: Why doesn’t EVERYONE make frequent backups? It is so easy to do. Many of today’s backup products will make periodic backup copies all the time with no human interaction. Oh well, that is a discussion for a different time…
Victims of the latest strain of Globe ransomware can now unlock their files without paying out money to cybercriminal extortionists, thanks to a newly released and free-to-use decryption tool. Details may be found in an article by Danny Palmer in the ZDNet web site at: https://goo.gl/KRo67v
