Re KeRanger:

According to a blog article from Bitdefender, KeRanger ‘looks virtually identical to version 4 of the Linux.Encoder Trojan that has been infecting thousands of Linux servers since the beginning of 2016.’ Commentary from John Leyden for The Register: First Mac OS X ransomware actually a rewrite of Linux file scrambler – Gatekeeper nutmegged using dodgy cert. Also commented on Mac Virus: KeRanger and Linux.Encoder

Re Locky:

An article from March 8th 2016 by Tim Ring for SC Magazine – Locky ransomware ‘on the rampage’ globally – is focused on Locky but also collates commentary from sources such as Fortinet and McAfee about how it relates to other major families, notably CryptoWall and TeslaCrypt.
