Alert: Ransomware 2.0 Spora

This newest version of Ransomware hides itself inside a fake invoice attached to an email. 
 
This version of Spora -- distributed during a 48-hour campaign that began on August 20 -- is spread by a phishing campaign that sends email with an attached Word document claiming to be an invoice.  
 
In order to see the contents of the file, the user is asked to enable a Windows Script File, which allows the document to drop its malicious payload. It's the first time Spora has been embedded in a document, rather than pulled from a web site/server.
 
If your computer displays signs of Ransomware infection.  Turn it off - disconnect it from the Network/Internet.  Call Tech Support.
