BEWARE of a new ransomware that is “crowdfunding” bitcoins, claiming to be a charity.
The The so-called “Global Poverty Aid Agency” is a group of theives masquerading as a non-profit and encrypting computer files thinly disguised as a non-profit trying to save children.
In typical extortion campaigns, if you pay the ransom you get the key to unlock your computer.
However, the GPAA refuses to provide the key until their mock goal of 1,000 Bitcoins is reached.
Taking nasty scams to a new level, this one wins a prize – hopefully jail time.
