After the recent Petya and Mischa ransomware virus attack forms a near variant called Bad Rabbit. It is currently targeting organizations and consumers, mostly in Russia and Ukraine, but is also evident in the United States. The virus is delivered via legitimate websites as an Adobe Flash executable file named “install_flash_player.exe”.  Apple iOS and Android operating systems are not affected by this virus.

  2. Protect yourself by using the latest version of Malwarebytes for Home or Business
