A new ransomware called Fantom was discovered by AVG malware researcher Jakub Kroustek that is based on the open-source EDA2 ransomware project. The Fantom Ransomware uses an interesting feature of displaying a fake Windows Update screen that pretends Windows is installing a new critical update while its encrypting files.
