SVG, JS and HTA injection with Locky Ransomware

According Hacker News reported that a Facebook spam campaign as spreading "Locky" ransomewhere through image files in the SVG format and is being dubbed "ImageGate" by popular media.

Basically, just know that if you click an image on social media and it automatically downloads you shouldn't open it. Meaning don't double click on it once downloaded.Files affected are those that can contain Javascript code, popular infected files are SVG, JS and HTA file exentsions.

SO don't open a downloaded image file with .SVG extension!
