HOT TOPIC: CRYPTOLOCK Malware

There has unfortunately been an ongoing trend with some of our client malware issues that has stumped our consultant the the IT community as whole. While having Anti-Malware is your best bet, this sneaky malware goes undetected and it isn't until AFTER it is installed that our consultants see it. It is deep rooted in machine file systems that even if our consultants remove and reformat it is still infected. It isn't until you pay the ransom that it will allow the files to restore fully. This is a HOT issue as rumor has it, it may have affected the FBI and NSA.

Crown Computer Consultants have been working dilligently and for long hours trying to put out these fires. The current threat is called CRYPTOLOCK. 

PLEASE READ THIS FOR MORE INFORMATION REGARDING THIS MALWARE THAT IS A HOT ISSUE!

This current threat will scan your computer files and attach itself to over 50 file types, which if you can imagine, is a lot of files to weed through. It then demands that you pay anywhere from $100-$300 dollars to fix the issue. PLEASE do not freak out or click anymore. CALL us immediately so that we can rectify or if you can follow a few steps to avoid getting this installed on your computer.

  • Do not click on anything you are not familar with in your email or attachment. Malware is meant to be hidden so it can be in the form of something familiar like your Facebook, twitter, or bank statement. If in doubt, don't open it.
  • If you are sent a link, hover your mouse over and if the link seems encrypted with a bunch of numbers, don't click it. Again if you do not know who sent it,find out or do not click.
