Hackers threaten Danvers firm, seeking ransom

“A local business received a strange, threatening message every time someone tried to open a file Wednesday, police said.

Hackers claimed to have hijacked the firm’s files through the use of encryption, though it is not clear if they were actually able to do this. If the company did not pay a ransom, the hackers threatened to send child pornography and spam purportedly from the business to police, on top of the loss of the company’s files.”
