Abstract

Now this is all theoric. Everything changes when someone you know is hit by this kind of malware. This is what happened to one of us. One very close friend just got infected with a brand new piece of ransomware called BitCrypt and you know what? That nasty piece of malware encrypted all pictures of his lovely children from their birth to now. No backup, except for some pictures on Facebook. Now we feel very concerned, because one of us is the godfather of one of those adorable kids, a rock'n'roll boy called Keziah.
