Send $200 in unmarked e-cash...

This story is a little light on technical details, but interesting nonetheless. Short form: an attacker encrypts important business documents, then leaves a $200 ransom note for the encryption keys. I'm sure this sort of thing happens all the time, but it rarely makes the mainstream media (especially not for a measly $200 ransom).

Have you backed up your files lately?
