A new ransomware cybersecurity attack has been discovered this week. The SyncCrypt ransomware email is disguised as a court order and is difficult to detect as it pulls components for the attacks from seemingly harmless images when the attachment is opened. Currently, the attackers are charging around $430 for the decryption key and there is no free way to decrypt infected computers. You should exercise caution when opening any email and/or attachment from anyone, especially so if the email is regarding court orders.
