Beware: New CryptoLocker Virus - Bad Rabbit

Overnight there was a new release of a Cryptolocker Virus that appears while web browsing as an Adobe Flash update.  The virus is being distributed by compromised news and media websites.  Since it is new and we do not know the extent, it is possible that the virus could pop up on any website. 

Please be aware and do not click on any Adobe update(s) that pop up on your screen.   If you have already clicked on the link, you need to disconnect your computer from the network and shut it down immediately. 

Below is a link that will tell you more about the virus and explains how it is being deployed:
