What does the Cryptolocker Virus Do?

It is very important that you know about Cryptolocker, what it does and the repercussions for you as a home or business user

Please note that this isn’t scaremongering but a genuine threat that has potentially serious consequences. Please see the BBC Article on Cryptolocker

Cryptolocker is a piece of malware that once installed, warns you that you need to pay a fee (in this case around £250 – £300) to recover your data. Usually malware like this is just bluffing and once removed there you can carry on using your computer. This new strain however carries a harmful payload as it literally encrypts all of the data on your PC.

Encryption is designed to prevent unauthorised access to files as the owner of the encrption key is the only person who can access the data. Cryptolocker has been written properly and uses “best practices” to encrypt your data. This means once it has been encrypted you cannot get your data back. It doesn’t matter if you run a system restore or use anti malware to unencrypt the data – it still remains

Worse still, the encryption spreads to USB drives, Cloud drives and possibly network drives as well so it can destroy your whole business or lose you every single one of your beloved pictures, music etc

The owners of the Cryptolocker malware store the encryption key on a remote server and only by purchasing it from them will it be released back to you. You have 72 hours to pay for it or the key is lost forever and literally no one can get it back. At the moment apparently they are honouring payments of around £250 – £300 but then you are taking a chance and you are giving your account details to criminals. You are also giving into blackmail and by paying for it, it encourages more criminals to get involved. Just because you’ve already been hit doesn’t mean you won’t get hit again

How can we prevent encryption viruses?

The only fail safe way of preventing against any kind of data loss is regular backups but you need to make sure they are kept away from the PC or Laptop. As previously mentioned cloud backup systems like Google Drive, Dropbox etc are just folder on your PC and they will probably be encrypted as well. Take a backup of your data on a USB drive and then move it away from the PC. Do this at least once a week but business users should do it every day

Can we unlock the Cryptolocker and encryption viruses?

It has now become possible for us to try and recover your data in 2017 using specialist procedures. We believe we are now one of only several companies who can get around the impossible.

Please call us today to find out if we can help you get your encrypted data back.
