    NGRBot_spreading_through_Skype

      Hi,

       

      We have a write-up available on the NGRBot malware which spreads through Skype links that appear on Skype Chat window:

      The bot downloads Ransomware sample which uses McAfee logo and charges $200 from the victims.

       

      We have the following blogs on NGRBot:
