Interesting article at Arstechnica, about a malware that encrypts files and demands ransom, including bitcoins.
I'm not sure if this belongs in the Service discussion, moderator feel free to move it.

PS. Sorry, didn't notice someone posted it first.
And I don't know how to delete the topic, the site doesn't allow me to.

Sometimes, if it looks too bullish, it's actually bearish
It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

It was already posted about in the Press Section (which is much more suitable) so perhaps just lock/delete this topic (btw - you can move topics yourself - check down the bottom left when you are editing the OP).
