CryptoLocker Ransomware What You Need To Know

CryptoLocker Ransomware What You Need To Know

CryptoLocker is a new ransomware program that will encrypt your data using RSA & AES encryption. Once the malware has finished encrypting your data, a CryptoLocker program will pop up demanding payment to decrypt your data. this payment is either $100 or $300 in order to decrypt the files. I myself would never pay for this decryption of my data, because paying for something that was not encrypted in the first place is just wrong, plus these criminals hold innocent people to ransom.

In this video I will show you how to remove CryptoLocker and show you a way to try and recover your data, also I will be using cryptoprevent from nick shaw.

CryptoPrevent is a tiny utility to lock down any Windows OS to prevent infection by the Cryptolocker malware or ‘ransomware’, which encrypts personal files and then offers decryption for a paid ransom.
