A new ransomware called Alpha Ransomware was discovered and analyzed this week by Katja HahnS!Ri, MalwareHunterTeam, and Michael Gillespie.  This ransomware encrypts your data with AES-256 encryption and then demands $400 USD in the iTunes Gift Cards in order to get your files back. Thankfully a decryptor for this infection was able to be created due to a discovered flaw.
