CryptoLocker – Your Files Are Encrypted!
CryptoLocker is a dangerous Internet virus that can ruin all of your data
What does CryptoLocker do?
It is a form of “ransomware” where it finds all the data files on your network and encrypts them so no one can read those files. The malware then informs the infected user that he or she must pay a ransom in order to unlock their files.
How do you get CryptoLocker?
It is spread from different email phishing campaigns. Some come from legitimate businesses, others come through phony Federal Express or UPS tracking notifications.
How do you know if your system is infected?
You will be locked out of your computer. If your computer is acting slow and your antivirus software is out of date, you are at risk.
