|The Business Impact of CryptoLocker|
|Written by Craig Dennis|
We often hear about the latest threat to Internet users and data security but because these global scares are reported every other week with little apparent "real-world" impact we tend to ignore them. Too often it's like the boy who cried wolf.
Here's a brief report on a customer of ours who last week was a victim of CryptoLocker - a nasty type of “Ransomware” that encrypted all their files and demanded a payment so that the files could be made readable again - and to give some tips on how to avoid this happening to you.
In a breathtakingly short space of time our customer's business had ground to a halt.
