CryptoLocker : What YOU Need to Know!

CryptoLocker : What YOU Need to Know!

CryptoLocker is a REAL threat to your data

CryptoLocker (a ransomware program) was released in September 2013. This software encrypts files on your server or PC rendering them useless. The software will prompt you to send money in order to decrypt the files affected. A time period is given to activate the encryption key and if you don’t comply your files will be gone forever. After paying with MoneyPak vouchers or Bitcoins your files will be restored to normal.

How to avoid being infected by CryptoLocker

CryptoLocker is spread through email attachments sent to you by legitimate looking company emails that include Fedex, UPS, DHS, IRS, etc. The email contains a zip attachment containing executable files disguised as PDF’s. They have a PDF icon and are typically named something like FORM_101513.exe or FORM_101513.pdf.exe. (notice the .exe = executable) Since they look like normal PDF files people tend to open them and this starts the infection. So please be very careful when you see an email that isn't expected by a sender no matter where it comes from.
