PLEASE! Don’t Get Caught!

Today I had my first client that got infected with a variation of the CryptoLocker Virus.  I told you about this virus a year ago (http://goo.gl/LOuzW8) that encrypts your files and ransoms it for money.  When I wrote about it the ransom was $300, well now it’s $500 with this variant.

They caught it through an email attachment that they opened AND they had no backups of their data, violating my #1 rule when it comes to avoiding viruses.  As there were new clients, they didn’t now, unfortunately now they do.  So PLEASE be careful and be sure you have a local and off-site backup of all your data that you absolutely do not want to lose – the effort is well worth it.
