if you thought fighting the Internet censorship bills was bad enough, now we have something ELSE out to get at us! CryptoLocker is a nasty new virus that has just recently been discovered and it's FAR, FAR WORSE than all the hackers AND Internet censorship bills combined. What makes it worse than everything else is that a LOT of antivirus softwares - especially the big names - can't detect or stop it. If your computer get infected by it, CryptoLocker will take ALL of your personal files and encrypt them, then give you a time limit to send a certain amount of money to the mastermind behind this evil virus (that and he's pretty much uncatchable ATM)!
Your only hope is to back up ALL of your personal files on a USB key or a separate hard drive and update your antivirus (do it as often as possible). Also, DO NOT open random e-mails OR download e-mail attachments unless you're expecting them and don't do ANYTHING sketchy such as go on porn sites or watch cartoons or whatever on illegal sites! Lastly, please do be careful when you're on the Internet, be it just plain browsing or researching stuff for school or work or whatever!
CryptoLocker is a fairly tidy virus, and if you try to screw around with it, ALL of your personal files will go bye-bye! GONE! POOF! FINISHED! Also, PLEASE do the following:
Please repost and spread the word because CryptoLocker is now our greatest enemy, and one we HAVE to combat against RIGHT NOW! This needs to spread like wildfire so that the man behind it all can get arrested and go to jail!
Well this is quite serious but you must repost this and just let the rest do it's work but please do the following steps to keep your computer or laptop or ANY devices that you use or'll you'll end up missing files of art, work, and even special E-mails.
Everyone make sure that you log out, on any devices and make sure that your firewall, anti-virus or anything that will keep a virus out of your computer chip, and be safe.
