Never let anyone blackmail you. Protect your business from Cryptolocker attacks.
How Cryptolocker enters your system and what it does.
Cryptolocker is a kind of malware that primarily focuses on extorting money from its victims. Like malware, a cryptolocker uses social engineering techniques to trick the user into running or downloading it. Unsuspecting users may find a zip file attachment in their email that disguises itself into a sales/purchase invoice from a logistics company. Once the attached file is attempted to be opened, the script inside it runs and clings on the system's memory to start its malicious operations. These cryptolockers then encrypt the files inside the computer and make it unusable. The cryptolocker will ask you to pay in bitcoins for the release of your files. However, paying these cyber attackers is frowned upon in the IT industry, since it motivates these criminals to do more damage to businesses and fuels their efforts.
Removing Cryptolocker and its existing remnants.
Removing the cryptolocker program does not work through simple file deletion. Cryptolocker developers anticipated this as a recovery method- there are added extra programs installed in your system to prevent you from removing the cryptolocker.
