Ransomeware Alert Cryptolocker

Another reason to make sure you have backed up your computer and even have an image backup. Cryptolocker is what is generally termed as ransomeware as it encrypts all your valuable files and asks you for a fee to release them. There is no other way to get your files back and there is no guarantee that you will even get them back if you pay the fee.

The ransomeware finds it’s way on to your computer from infected websites or attachments in emails and social media. It relies on some human interaction to infect so using common sense will reduce the risk of you getting stung.

My advice is to make sure you have a backup of your files and use care when opening emails and sufing the net. If it doesn’t look right, get away from it. more info here …
