Things that happen every four years: Olympic Games, Presidential elections, and now new Mac ransomware

Back in the early noughties we had an older mac in the lab which was a common computer and slow. I had cause to stick a zip drive in it and when I inserted said disc into my Tower I was told it was infected. Knowing where it had just been I took the Norton CD and had a look at the common computer. It was absolutely riddled with nvir, it was pretty much everywhere.

A good long clean later and it was running fairly quickly again. So it slowed computers down a bit. Big deal.
