New PUBG Ransomware and Spartacus Ransomware Popping Up

Following Thanatos ransomware which was released in the last month, new ones like PUBG ransomware and Spartacus ransomware have been discovered recently. Like all ransomware, they encrypt the files and demand the victims to follow their rules or pay the ransom to decrypt the encrypted files. Here are the things you may want to know about those ransomware and the ways to prevent ransomware attacks.

Ridiculously, PUBG ransomware seems like a joke that it demands victims to play PUBG game for one hour to decrypt the files. It’s not funny at all. Though the attacker doesn’t demand the money from the victim, you won’t want to be fooled like this for any reason. So you’d better pay more attention to any suspicious actions on your computer when you are surfing online.

Spartacus ransomware encrypts files regardless of the extension and replaces the extension with .spartacus. Once the encryption finished, a note will ask you to pay the ransom with Bitcoins. Interestingly, the ransomware note tries to guarantee the decryption. But it’s highly advised not to trust any words from a cybercriminal. The most effective way to prevent ransomware attacks is to install a powerful anti-ransomware engine on the computer.
