New computer virus targets gamers

  • Gamers are being targeted by a deadly computer virus identified as ransomware. Once infected, gamers are unable to play their favorite game until they pay a ransom. The virus finds out other saved games on infected computers and encrypts them. A user has to pay $500 in Bitcoins to get a key to unlock the encrypted files. According to a researcher, a new cybercrime group is behind this attack.
