CryptoWall-4.0-Virus

 

Malware like cryptowall, encrypts all data on computer hard drives. It can also spread to network and will also affect backups.

Data cannot be recovered or repaired without paying the ransom demanded. Even if the ransom is paid there is no guarantee that your data will be restored.

There are several ways to guard against these type of threats. 

Online backup services like Drop box and Crash plan will protect data and allow for data to be restored.

In the Last week Itmantech has had several clients in Watchfield and Shrivenham affected by Cryptowall.

These clients did not have appropriate backup solutions in place and lost all their Data.

After an infection Itmantech recommends that affected Pcs and Laptops be reloaded or restored to factory settings.

If you are not sure how to go about this contact your local repair shop for more information.

Be sure to install a effective antivirus product like Kasperky or Norton 360.
