Data Doctor 2010 will make you sick

Our researcher Adam Thomas came across a new piece of ransomware today, an encryption trojan via our old "friends" iframedollars. It encrypts the files on your hard drive very rapidly if you’re unfortunate enough to be victimized by it.

It arrives through drive by downloads from malicious web sites. It’s also packaged with other malware.

1. The victim receives a message that the system is shutting down due to "Unrecognized disk driver command."
