Fully Functional Ransomware Targeting OS X Users

This was completely expected, but yet I am sure there are still many users out there that believe the OS X platform is impervious to virus and malware attacks.  Mac users have only slid under the radar because of a smaller, and therefore, less lucrative target environment for cyber criminals.  Ransomware is not as much about volume.  It is about users willing to pay for decryption keys.  These attacks will only increase over time.  Be prepared.
