A few days ago, I warned you about a dangerous new ransomware attack that's holding people's iPhones, iPads and Macs hostage in Australia. This hacking attack takes over Apple mobile devices and Macs and locks them down until the owner pays a ransom to the hacker.
Now, the attack has hit American shores.
Victims of this ransomware hack will find out that their phone is completely locked. They'll see a message pop up on their phone informing them that the device has been hacked by someone named "Oleg Pliss." Before this obvious pseudonym will unlock the phone, you'll have to wire a sum between $50 and $100 to a PayPal account.
Take my advice: Don't pay up! Here's what you need to do.
