Nasty Virus Beware
Last month, antivirus companies discovered a new ransomware known as Cryptolocker. This ransomware is nasty because infected users are in danger of losing their personal files forever. Spread through infected websites, this ransomware has been targeting companies through phishing attacks. The bad news is decryption is impossible unless a user has the private key stored on the cybercriminals’ server. Currently, infected users are instructed to pay £180 to receive this private key. Infected users also have a time limit to send the payment. If this time elapses, the private key is destroyed, and your files may be lost forever. It is possible to recover previous versions of the encrypted files if the data was backed up into the cloud Therefore Cloud-based backup solutions are advisable for business professionals and consumers alike Backup: Also, the existence of malware such as Cryptolocker reinforces the need to back up your personal files. However, a local backup may not be enough in some instances, as Cryptolocker may even go after backups located on a network drive connected to an infected PC. Cloud-based backup solutions are advisable for business professionals and consumers alike.
