    In Year 2017, even Malware is Anime!

    Anyone affected by the new malware Rensenware, named after the anime-style game Touhou Seirensen (Undefined Fantastic Object), has to score over 200 million points on the game’s “lunatic” level or they won’t be able to access their computer files.

    You all have heard of the growing trend of 'ransonware', that locks down your PC forcing you to either cough up big bucks, or say goodbye to your Hard Drive data, and forcing you to reformat, and lose everything you have and in some cases even backups have been infected, but this new breed of 'malware' forces you instead to beat the lunatic high score of almost impossible 200 million points in the game!
    Lucky, in this case it was a 'bad joke' gone wrong, but that does not stop new malware authors in picking up on his 'lunatic' anime idea!
