Jigsaw Ransomware: Deletes files

The Jigsaw crypto malware may be propagated online via corrupted archive files, text and PDF documents that are attached to spam mail. Emails may appear to come from an internal source or an outside vendor and you should be cautious when receiving invoices because they may be targeted with a spear phishing designed to bypass safe email practices.

The Jigsaw Trojan may disguise itself as an instance of Mozilla Firefox and display a program window that features an animated ransom note that is accompanied by a doll that you might have seen in the movie Saw from 2004. Jigsaw Ransomware prompts the victim to send a payment of 0.4 Bitcoins  to receive a decryption key
