A new type of computer virus has been discovered that can wreak havoc on the computers of millions of people.
The virus, known as CPE-16, has been found on at least nine different computers, according to cybersecurity firm ESET.
The researchers discovered CPE in a sample of malware they downloaded from the Dark Web marketplace.
ESET researchers said that this is the first time the virus has shown up on a computer.
They say it was first spotted by a researcher who has used Dark Web vendors to sell his research.
“The malware is so advanced that it is probably the most sophisticated malware we have ever seen,” said one researcher.
ESet researchers said CPE is being used by malware makers to evade detection.
The ransomware virus is known as CryptoWall, or WannaCry, and it encrypts data on computers, including personal documents, photos, music, videos and other files.
It can be downloaded on computers using Windows XP or newer operating systems.CPE is a variant of a virus known as ECC.
It’s also called WannaCrypt and the ransomware virus was named after a German-based hacker who developed the virus.
The ECC variant of the virus is named “CPE.”
Researchers at ESET said the first known cases of CPE were reported by security researchers who used DarkWeb vendors to trade stolen data.
The researchers said the researchers were able to identify more than 2,500 computers infected with the malware and 1,300 infected with other forms of malware, including ransomware.
In a blog post, ESET warned that the spread of CTE-16 is increasing and that people should be prepared for it.
They added that the new variant of ransomware is more complicated and has multiple variants, including one that uses a new technique called “cryptoransom.”
Cryptoransom is an attack that locks the user out of a computer, forcing them to pay a ransom.
“Cryptorampiric” ransomware encrypts files on computers.
“We have found evidence that the ransomware has a new variant that we believe is designed to evade encryption,” said the ESET blog post.
It said that the virus encrypts documents on computers and “it has multiple different variants,” including one with “cryptonocker.”
“It can take a few minutes for the ransomware to complete encrypting files and then it will show a ransom note that the victim must pay in order to unlock the computer,” the blog post said.CME-16 also encrypts hard drives.
The ransomware virus has also been detected on computers that have been infected with ransomware by using a Windows XP firewall.
ESEC said it had identified the infection on two machines, one infected with Windows XP, the other with a newer version of Windows.
“The first detection of CME-15 on a Windows firewall was on a Dell Venue 810 with Windows 10,” ESEC’s research director said.
“It is not clear if the firewall is the same firewall that we were using on this particular machine or if we are being targeted by the same attack vector.”
“We have also found evidence of this attack on a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga laptop.
It is possible that this attack vector is targeting both systems, and the infection is also being deployed on Lenovo Thinkpads that are still being updated,” he added.
The first detected infection came from a Windows 10 firewall, ESEC told NBC News.
This firewall was not detected in any other firewall we have detected, the researchers said.
