An aggressive new ransomware called TeslaCrypt is targeting Windows users, and it breaks new ground by expanding on a familiar yet successful formula.
As you may already know, ransomware is about the bluntest sort of malicious software you are likely to experience.
Ransomware shoves itself unavoidably right in your face.
It deliberately locks you out of your computer or your files, and then demands money to let you back in.
TeslaCrypt, first detected by SophosLabs in January 2015, goes for your files, much like CryptoLocker and CryptoWall, but it holds even more types of file to ransom.
