Affected by Petya

#Petya ransomeware started to creep out on 27th June. Initial analysis by Symantec and McAfee seems to indicate that it is similar to the #WannaCry ransomware that hit about a month back, but Kaspersky says it is #NotPetya

Ransomware screen. Win 8 systems. Source


Also note that the email address that is mentioned in the ransomware screen is blocked. So, even if you pay the ransom ( and 35 people have paid ) , there is no way you are going to un-encrypt your system.

Do not pay Ransomware. The email id is blocked.
