CryptoLocker Viruses

CryptoLocker Viruses are once again attacking computers and servers.

We have had 2 clients recently who were severely impacted by CryptoLocker viruses, causing major data losses.

We worked for several hours (days actually) to recover their data for them through our diligent backup maintenance, however, they did lose their valuable time because of these viruses.

These last 2 viruses were received as attachments to emails in the format of Resumes. If you are not currently recruiting or expecting resumes to be emailed to you, then do not open any attachments you receive labelled as Resumes. These viruses are extremely difficult for virus scanners to pick up, so a reminder to always be careful opening attachments to emails, even if you do know who the sender is.

If you are concerned that you may have received a virus, please do not hesitate to contact us.
