Re: Cryptolocker Threat - Random Ware
This is a nasty Trogan my son alerted me to it after the company he works for were attacked thankfully their security stopped it! They got access through a laptop connected to the main system. As all the links have said back everything on your computer on an external harddrive and when finished unplug it as anything connected can be infected.
My son who now lives in the US has had a visit from the FBI as their name is being used in this ransom scam. He also said "The majority of infections are caused by email attachments, because that the easiest way to target deployment of the Trojan, but unfortunately it is not the only way. You can get it by visiting websites that execute the code from scripts". So be vigilant and take care with emails you don't know the source of.
