Newest Ransomware Virus

Posted on November 13, 2013 at 10:54 AM
So where do I begin...Ransomware, Spyware, Virus, adware...whatever you choose to call it, is ramping up. Now more than ever you must be diligent, suspect everything...trust no one or anything related to your computer and your files. They are now using an encryption software to infect your computer via email with an attachment. Always be wary of email especially with an attachment even from a trusted source. Typically the email will come from a shipping company UPS or FedEx saying you have an undeliverable package and they need you to open the attachment to show you the tracking info so they can deliver it. Be very aware of any attachment in your email and pay special attention to the name of the file...DELIVERY INFORMATION.PDF.EXE is an example of a file with a DOUBLE EXTENSION. The PDF stands for PORTABLE DOCUMENT FORMAT a completely harmless file the is read using Adobe Reader, but the EXE part is an EXECUTABLE extension meaning the file is a program that will run on your computer. More than likely infecting you with some type of virus. They also use .COM which is another type of file that will run a program on your computer(not related to the .COM at the end of web addresses). Please be aware at this time of year shipping is always heavier than usual so that is what makes this virus spread even more rapidly. The virus named Cryptolocker is particularly nasty as it will encrypt all of your files and you will be unable to recover them. Unless you pay the ransom, that can range from $300 to $700, or by making sure you have a reliable backup. Otherwise you WILL lose most if not all of your picture, videos, music and documents. I recommend a service like Carbonite, they offer a backup solution that is seamless, if you are online it is always backing up to the Internet or Cloud if you will. They will backup everything on the computer for $5.00 per month and that is for unlimited storage. Best of all once it is set up there is nothing you need to do it happens in the background always protecting you. Other benefits are the ability to access your files from any computer. I had a client with this service that had their computer stolen, a few days later the backup started again, meaning the computer was accessing the internet from some other location. I was able to retrieve the IP address from Carbonite and we subsequently traced it back to a Comcast address and the police were able to recover the computer. So all-in-all this is a great service for a great price. Feel free to call me if you have any questions about the Encryptolocker virus or Carbonite, I will be glad to assist in everyway possible.

I have a Norton 2005 AV, active and updated dayly, plus firewall on my wireless LAN. My other (very old) HP PC, no antivirus and never infected. I dont use Credit cards nor Bank acounts, nor go to Pornos or get suspicious freebies that I never asked for.

Unfortunately, many non-virus related issues are often blamed on computer viruses. Nine times out of ten, a computer problem is a software, driver, or hardware related issue and not a virus.

you may not. So, think positively about your work. Dwell on the aspects of your work you like. Avoid negative people and gossip. Find coworkers you like and enjoy and spend your time with them.

Cybercriminals spam out an email, with forged header information, tricking you into believing that it is from a shipping company like DHL or FedEx. The email tells you that they tried to deliver a package to you, but failed for some reason. Sometimes the emails claim to be notifications of a shipment you have made.

Challenges of studying abroad For those of you who dream of studying abroad or simply escaping from your parents, you are probably thinking studying abroad will be an easy transition. From personal experience, I can bet you that it is a lot of fun, but certainly not easy.

Another thing that can help tremendously is to take the other person’s perspective and compassionately imagine what it feels like to be them. That’s a HUGE one. Also, If you have a favorite song, or YouTube video, or person to talk to – use it!
Embrace the positive emotion that comes from these things to get your mind off of what’s going on.

Titanium is known to be a strong and corrosion resistant material. For this reason there are a huge range of uses for it and it can be found in use in manufacturing, technology, science, and engineering and within the medical and health industry. It is a costly material to use however, which is why it is only used when non-corrosion and high strength are needed. For example, within the aviation and aerospace fields, it is widely used and valued for its strength and durability within extreme conditions.

Using the right email provider can protect you. As gmail gives you an alert when the mail content or attachment is suspicious. Also the user should be aware with these threats.
