    Let's wait for an decryptor. Thanks for sharing, nice read.

    A nice read is also on Bleeping Computer.

    The PokemonGo Ransomware Targets Arabic Victims

    This ransomware targets Arabic victims based on the ransom notes and screensaver created by the program. When the ransomware has finished encrypting the files on a computer it will create a ransom note on the Windows Desktop called هام جدا.txt. This translates to Very important.txt.
    The content of this ransom note is:
    (: لقد تم تشفير ملفاتكم، لفك الشفرة فلكسي موبيليس للعنوان التالي me.blackhat20152015@mt2015.com وشكرا على كرمكم مسبقا
    The English translation is:

    ( : Your files have been encrypted , decoding Falaksa Mobilis following address me.blackhat20152015@mt2015.com and thank you in advance for your generosity
