Beware of Ransomeware

crypto4_13102675LINK: How to Avoid CryptoLocker Ransomeware

I’ve written before about Ransome Ware, espicially they one that looks like it is from the FBI, saying that they have detected illegal files on your computer and you need to pay a fine to FREE your computer.  You can search this blog to find that article.

However, this weekend I had an associate to become a victim of a new variation of Ransome Ware called CRYPTOLOCKER

The Crypto Locker virus is passed around in emails that have innocent enough looking senders, such as UPS or FedEx, but they’re not really from these corporations, of course.  Instead, when you open the attachment, your computer becomes infected and the virus locks all your files until you pay a ransom.

There are lots of articles out there on how to remove it..however remeber the basics

DON’t CLICK on Suspicous E-mail or Social Media links,.  Keep your virus protection and Malware software UP-TO-DATE!
