My free Panda antivirus displayed a message relating to Ransomware.
There was an option to "fix now" but it also stated that my present version
could not sort out the problem, that I needed an upgraded version.
I do not know if this was a message resulting from a genuine threat
or if it was simply a way to get me to pay for an upgrade.
Some clarification would be appreciated.

it wants you to upgrade to the full paid version...

free av's do this kind of advertising.

Thank you. I hope you are right as it has been playing on my mind, having read about the damage this can do.

Do you have R100/month? Get a real anti-virus like ESET NOD32 and also benefit from having them protect your cellphone
