New Pacman Ransomware Spreading Via Dropbox Links
Although the first wave of this new Pacman ransomware virus is written in Danish and targeting Danish users, analysts expect this threat to spread.
If you use application whitelisting as a part of your network security protocols (and you should), you may want to add Dropbox to the not safe apps.
If you use Dropbox for business and don’t want to block it, be sure to inform your team to be on alert for suspicious Dropbox links.
Ransomware is particularly nasty and difficult to remove without losing files, so we recommend you make prevention a priority.
