Those Pesky Hack Monkeys

New hack attack
So, you thought things were under control, that hackers were more or less being held in check. Not so, check out the newest hack in which an application gets into your system, grabs some files and locks them. The virus or trojan will encrypt them and then send you a ransom note to make an online payment to unlock the files.

Its clever and its underhanded and I would imagine that they will be successful enough to evolve it to the next level.
