A new piece of ransomware is spreading rapidly across China that has already infected more than 100,000 computers in the last four days as a result of a supply-chain attack… and the number of infected users is continuously increasing every hour.

What’s Interesting? Unlike almost every ransomware malware, the new virus doesn’t demand ransom payments in Bitcoin.

Instead, the attacker is asking victims to pay 110 yuan (nearly USD 16) in ransom through WeChat Pay—the payment feature offered by China’s most popular messaging app.
