I know that this may be moved to the "computer" section, but I wanted folks to know of a "ransomvirus" that is a fatality waiting to happen. Basically it encrypts your documents file, and then demands payment for it to be decrypted. There is NO way to break the encryption code, and your files WILL be lost. Backup files need to be stored "off line" because the virus will encrypt any document files found on the computer. I only posted this here because if you are like me, you have a huge amount of research documents, and other vital stuff that you would be sad to lose. If you want more information look here: CryptoLocker Snopes on CryptoLocker NOTE: Antispyware, antivirus, malwarebytes.... are powerless to stop this from ruining your machine. They may remove cryptolocker - but the files will still be ruined. Don't expect to regain the files if you pay the ransom - usually not a satisfactory solution. Look here for in depth information and coding of cryptolocker. Again, I know that this is not the forum for this notice, but because it would not be noticed (accept by a few) I thought for a bit of time, the mods. and adms. will allow this posting.
