Researchers from PandaLabs have spotted a Microsoft themed ransomware variant. Spreading over email and P2P, the ransomware locks down the infected victim's PC and demands a 100 EURO payment to Microsoft Corporation for unlocking it as Microsoft cannot verify the authenticity of the Windows installation.

Unless the victim pays within 48 hours, the ransomware threatens to send their IP to the district attorney’s office citing piracy violations.

The unlock key for the ransomware currently detected as Ransom.AN is QRT5T5FJQE53BGXT9HHJW53YT
