Bad Rabbit Ransomeware: Get Your Holy Hand Grenade!

On October 24th, ransomware known as Bad Rabbit infected devices primarily in Russia and Ukraine. According to Kaspersky Lab, almost 200 targets have been hit. Those infected include the Russian media outlet Interfax, the Kiev metro system and the Odessa airport. One of the ways the attack spread was through a fake Adobe Flash Player update. Bad Rabbit is similar to Petya that spread earlier this year which encrypts files and demands a ransom to get them back. At the moment, things seem to have calmed down as the hacker's servers are now offline.
