The SonicWall Capture Labs Threat Research Team have come across ransomware that goes by the name GlobeImposter. It is also known as Fake Globe. GlobeImposter is distributed via a malicious spam campaign and as with all ransomware encrypts the victims files making them irrevocable without payment. Most ransomware have a built in file extension filter that will leave executable files intact. This ransomware however, encrypts executable files and renders the system unbootable as a result.
