Computer virus 'CryptoLocker' kidnaps files, holds them for ransom

Computer virus 'CryptoLocker' kidnaps files, holds them for ransom | Talking Tech | Scoop.it
A ruthless computer virus discovered last year is still terrorizing users. It essentially kidnaps your files and holds them for ransom
Donna Gill's insight:

We talked to one user who did pay and did get his data back. But Kocher says not everyone does. Payments are in Bitcoin, electronic currency that's virtually untraceable.Kocher says your best defense against CryptoLocker is to back up regularly and keep several old backups going back at least a month

Though lots of users do pay to get their files back, he recommends you don't. If you pay, you're funding the criminals.
