HiddenBeer Ransomware

HiddenBeer Ransomware is another new threat based on the open-source ransomware known as Hidden Tear. It encrypts the user’s files with a secure encryption algorithm, which makes it impossible to open data without a particular decryption key. The malware’s creators seek getting paid as they ask for 100 US dollars in Bitcoins transferred into their account in exchange for the decryption key.
