uh-oh: EmsiSoft's ransomware detector [^] has identified the malware as Phobos, and says decryption is not possible.

I assume this "gift" happened when I went to an internet cafe to print a document; unfortunately, I had to try 3 usb sticks to find the file I wanted to print.

post-mortem: a file named: 1500628164282.jpg

becomes: 1500628164282.jpg.id[4AF3C99A-2275].[checkcheck07@qq.com with an extension ADAME

I guess I am lucky the usb sticks ... now plugged in ... have not unleashed the demon on my laptop.

Does it mean anything that Win Defender gives these sticks an ok ?

weirdness is ...
