Beware of GermanWiper

This ransomeware is not actually ransomeware and the hackers have no intention of giving you your files back! That's because they are not encrypted but are permanently deleted!!!

Nasty stuff!
Never open attachments from unknown senders and be extra careful of files and attachments from people known to you. I also never follow links in an email from any source.

An easy way to tell if a link is valid is to hover your cursor over an email link. Look at the bottom left of your browser and you should see the actual link's URL. See if it matches what you're hovering over. ;)
