I've heard this as well, but am seeing that the news was retracted... Looks like no one is quite sure on this yet.

The feed was from a reliable source, I cannot share the link due to contract reasons, and they are reporting that it has morphed and now does not require the unregistered URL asa trigger to encrypt. The report yesterday said there was lots of down load activity, to threat actors, but no sign of it being used in the wild.
