New Virus Warning

Just thought I'd give everyone here a heads up as there is a brand new ransomware virus called CryptoLocker going about which encrypts your files and demands a ransom within a certain time period if you want to get them back.

It infects computers through email when the user downloads a .ZIP file.

You can read more about it here: http://www.cnbc.com/id/101172439

Stay safe, and remember to backup your files Smile

There was a thread about it few days ago on this forum. Still useful info for those who missed it.
