Kaspersky Labs describe a new crypto ransomware ZeroLocker. It has some specific features such as encryption of all files on the computer instead of encryption of pre-defined file types as is the case with other similar malware. ZeroLocker skips only large files and specific system and own folders. Most interestingly, Kaspersky Labs note that the faulty implementation at the C&C server may cause that the victim would mot receive the decryption keys even if he/she pays the ransom.
