    Rogue malware holding My Documents ransom...new XPAntivirus version

    Seems the latest variants of the rogue malware programs powered by Vundu/ZLob have turned to a pretty nasty method...it encrypts the contents of your My Documents folder...and holds it for ransom.

    ugg.. well at least there is a fix. I've not run into issues where I've not been able to remove the Antivirus 2009, 2010 or AV360 crap yet and be able to keep files intact but this is good to know. I hate to say it but this stuff is making me alot of money too on repairs after hours but is really keeping me busy during working hours.
