All the ransomware/file-encryption programs can be very financially nasty, particularly if you don't have have up-to-date backups. The later are design to replicate and flourish by passing from one system to the other. If you have a decent ISS, configured correctly, regularly updated and scanning and use the Internet via a limited account, with care and suspicion, even view mail with links and/or attachments with suspicion (- contact your financial institution if not sure), it's likely that you'll be reasonably safe. These people would need to segregate/isolate their wild/less suspicious times – perhaps to another machine that can be rebuilt when it becomes unusable. Also if you want to take a risk, don't do it on your PC or Laptop you use for important things.
