I just learned about a new RansomWare package that is going around called CryptoLocker. This piece of malware, once installed on a system, will immediately begin to encrypt all of the personal files using a high-level encryption algorithm and a private key needed for decryption. The private key, according to the software, is stored on a private server somewhere. The only way to obtain your private decryption key and get your data back is to pay a $300 ransom within 72 hours. There is a countdown on the left side of the window. After 72 hours, your private key is destroyed from the server. There is also a warning not to tamper with or remove the software as your key will be immediately destroyed.
Protect Your Google Data From Yourself!
Are you one of the many users who has embraced the Google Cloud? If so, then you probably have a lot of data out there that is important to keep. Especially after an accidental deletion. Did you know that Google offers no built-in restore function for your calendar? Once you delete an event, it’s gone. What if some kind of a syncing glitch happens with Outlook and causes your calendar to delete? Or what if you accidentally sync in the wrong direction with a new empty calendar. oops. Now what?
