Most of the time we became excited when we hear a Facebook notification about the new message. Our friend was excited on Sunday as well before he realized that the message was suspicious. He received a .svg picture without any explanation, and it smelled a bit fishy. His friend is not one of those users who sends lots of pictures just for fun. Besides, Facebook always shows a full or a part of the pictures. This time it looked like a link. He thought it’s just another version of the Facebook virus. Curiosity killed the cat, and he clicked on received picture. He ended up on the website that looked identical to YouTube where he was asked to install a necessary extension to watch the video. This seems suspicious, right?
The realization that Locky can reach computer users even in such a small European countries like Lithuania gives us a feeling that it’s impossible to hide from ransomware. The developers are still working hard and looking for various ways to infect computer users worldwide. Therefore, you should be careful and backup your files!
