Ransomware attacks are nothing new. A victim’s system gets infected, the virus finds sensitive data, and then the attacker uses that information to extort money. Well, it’s usually money!

Security team “MalwareHunter” reported the hack and shared the screenshot seen below. (Yes, that is Thomas the Tank, and yes, he’s been combined with a “F*** YOU!!!” caption.)
