This Ransomware Demands Nudes Instead of Bitcoin

Now, someone has added a new, perverse twist to this tried and tested scheme: demanding naked photographs instead of Bitcoin. Researchers at MalwareHunterTeam, a research group focused on ransomware, spotted the software, called nRansomware on Thursday. The group posted a screenshot of the message that’s displayed when a victim gets infected: “Your computer has been locked,” reads the message, which then asks the victim to email the hackers. “After we reply, you must send at least 10 nude pictures of you. After that we will have to verify that the nudes belong to you.”
