CryptoLocker Virus

The CryptoLocker virus is the latest example of a disturbing new trend in cybercrime called “ransomware”, wherein hackers use viral encryption malware to literally hold your data hostage,restricting access to your own computer. The malware has the ability to find and encrypt files located within shared networks, USB drives, external hard drives, network file shares and even some cloud storage drives. If just one computer on your network becomes infected, the entire network is compromised.
