Hi Guys,

We are receiving reports from users worldwide about a new version of Magniber Ransomware that is being spread via fake Windows 11 updates. Many people are being fooled into thinking they are downloading security updates, but instead, they are infecting themselves with very powerful ransomware. Please only download Microsoft updates or upgrades from the official Windows upgrade system alerts. You cannot trust any other source. If you are not sure, check with us first.

If you are not already aware, ransomware is a form of malware that encrypts the entire contents of your computer using unbreakable encryption, which essentially renders your computer useless and your files inaccessible. The only way to gain access to your files is by paying a hefty ransom demand to unlock your digital life. Once paid, the attacker remotely lifts (most of the time) the encryption. The ransom is usually very high, starting at several hundred euros, and in some cases can run into millions of euros depending on what information is on the system.

Let me know if you need any more information on this or help with anything else.

All the best,

Max Roberts,
