Popcorn Time ransomware: Infect your friends, get decryption keys

Think ransomware is already vicious and cruel? A new variant raise the ante on nasty. Ransomware is growing at an alarming rate. From your basic file encryption to entire hard drive encryption, coders of this malware are getting more creative as time goes on. Up until this point, however, the only moral quandary presented to ransomware victims was deciding to pay the hackers or not. Now, it seems that the black hats are upping the stakes. What if I told you that there is a new strain of ransomware that allows you to decrypt your files for free? The only catch is that you must infect others to obtain the decryption key.

Always there was something fishy about Popcorn Time. The service is pretty cool, but always there has to be some sort of malware there :)
