Computers Held for Ransom by Malware Virus
Ransomed are is a new form of malware (or computer virus) that infects your computer, encrypts all your data and asks for money to get all the data back. One woman was charged $400 to get her information back. Another chose not to pay and lost everything.
Keep your system up to date and install anti-virus software to protect yourself. The data cannot be in-encrypted even by experts. And for those of us working from home the story is short, if you get this malware on your system, pay up or lose everything.
