Malware Is On The Rise. There are a few new viruses out there, but the latest threat is called, Bad Rabbit. It’s a nasty ransomware virus that forces you to pay “them” in bitcoin currency in order to unlock your system.

(Backup your files) Bad Rabbit ransomware attacks are quickly spreading throughout Europe as we speak. Another thing I heard, the Bad Rabbit Ransomware is disguising itself as Adobe Flash. Be VERY cautious when updating your Adobe Flash player. If you want to update your Adobe Flash player securely, go here.
