Ransomware attack hitting Ukraine.

The researcher, who did not wish to be identified by name, said that in Ukraine XData already has an infection rate three times that of WannaCry. That number is merely an estimate, however, based on details submitted to the teamís ID Ransomware platform. MalwareHunterTeam has detected around 100 infections today so far.

...

Worse yet, itís not immediately clear how XData is being spread, though an attack by spam seems unlikely. ď[There are] too many victims in too short a time,Ē the researcher said.

...

Information isnít coming easy, but so far the MalwareHunterTeam has identified (among other victims) a Ukrainian factory, as well another company whose accounting department is apparently infected. The researcher has seen infections in Windows Server 2008 (including the R2 version), Windows 7, and Windows 10. ďBut there are others probably,Ē they added.
