In May, security researchers warned of a ransomware entitled “Jaff.” It was transmitted to potential victims via the Necurs botnet, which was also responsible for Locky and Dridex ransomware infections. Jaff’s attack method occurs by spam emails that contain a Word macro hidden inside a PDF file, that if opened, will unleash the ransomware and lock your machine’s files. The hackers behind Jaff demanded 0.5 to 2 bitcoin to release the locked files.
