BTCWare/Nuclear – don’t pay up!

Bleeping Computer: New Nuclear BTCWare Ransomware Released (Updated)

Lawrence Abrams notes: “Michael Gillespie discovered that the developers of this variant messed up on the encryption of files greater than 10MB in file size and will not be able to decrypt them. It was also discovered that this same behavior was seen with other files of random sizes. Therefore, it is advised that you do not pay the ransom as there is a good chance many of your files not be able to be decrypted.”
