RansomWare is where malware encrypts your files and then holds them hostage for a ransom. These ransom’s can be from $500 to several thousand dollars.
We have been experiencing a large number of people being infected with RansomWare. This normally will come as an attachment to an email. Quite often the email will tell you to click on the attachment to show you your invoice. It sometimes will look like a UPS, FedEx or Amazon invoice.
Clicking on the attachment will immediately infect you. The malware will encrypt all your files, including pictures, databases, QuickBooks, Word and Excel documents etc.
If you click on this accidentally, please immediately shut down your computer to prevent further infection. If this happens please call us IMMEDIATELY at 248-875-6959.
If you maintain vital pictures or documents, it is a good idea to back them up either to a flash drive or the cloud.
