Malicious “Ransomware” CryptoLocker Can Hold Computer Files Hostage
According to Scientific American, 100+ researchers from telecommunications companies, cybersecurity firms like McAfee, universities and elsewhere have formed a CryptoLocker working group to share information about the malware and develop security patches that detect it and stop it from running. Once your files have been encrypted, however, there is still no way to get them back. And whoever is behind CryptoLocker continues to develop new versions of the malware that can evade detection and avoid recent security fixes.
CryptoPrevent is a tiny FREE utility to lock down any Windows OS (XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 8.1) to prevent infection by the Cryptolocker malware or ‘ransomware’, which encrypts personal files and then offers decryption for a paid ransom. Get yours today by clicking HERE!
