Hello.

 

A new ransomware named AVCrypt has been discovered that tries to uninstall existing security software before it encrypts a computer.  Furthermore, as it removes numerous services, including Windows Update, and provides no contact information, this ransomware may be a wiper.

 

More detailed and recommended information about this new threat can be found here (thanks and credits to the Bleeping Computer Team).
