This virus spreads via Email, attached to PDF, DOC or XML file.
Then it spreads via Local network to ALL PC with shared folders with "Write" permissions granted.
After this it write file "C:\Windows\perfc.dat" and crashes PC by showing BSOD.

After restart it run Fake "Check Disk" in BIOS mode. While you looking at percentage it encrypting your "File Index"

Important information, as far as i know Avira is only Antivirus detecting this virus, not sure for how long it will save your PC, and when new version of virus come out.

This is how FAKE Check disk looks like

Every percent is how many files you LOST already!

That sucks. I was actually reading on a couple guards one could use against this, earlier today.

"One way of preventing a PC getting infected is by tricking the malware into thinking it’s already on the computer. This can be done by creating a file in the Windows directory folder (C:Windows) and create a file named perfc (it’ll end up look like this: %WINDIR%perfc) and set it to read only, according to Hacker House CEO Matthew Hickey. That’s because when it first run, NotPetya searches for that filename in that folder and if it’s found, it’ll kill itself, noted Cybereason.."
