Security Help Ransomeware
Recently in my blog regarding security concerns with Adobe flash, I mentioned the growing menace of ransomeware infection,
For those of you unfamiliar with the term, hackers use ransomeware to encrypt your computer files and then charge you a large sum of money before giving you the key so that you can unlock them.
This threat of course should serve as a timely reminder to regularly back up your data in perhaps more than one secure location. Also watch those e mails from sources you are uncertain of the senders, ...do do not open any attachments documents or pictures.
Should your computer become infected there is a tool to help you avoid paying those nasty criminal hackers any of your hard earned cash... It is called ID Ransomeware
It is available from id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com
How it works is very simple, you just upload the ransome note or a sample encrypted file to ID Ransomeware, and it will work out which software the naughty hackers have employed to lock your valuable data.
Next, it informs you of the methods and software tools that could be employed in the recovery of files.
It is good to know there is a solution to the growing rise in this type of attack by unscrupulous hackers. They are becoming more active in Australia, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom and lately the USA.
Stay safe my friends,..... and do that back up now!
Make sure those in your own network are aware of this and my other recent security alerts, otherwise only my own followers will be receipt of these vital pieces of information.
Regards to you all, have an enjoyable productive weekend.
