    3rd ransom? attempt in a week


    So far, this seems to be coming from having Microsoft Solitaire game sitting open along with chrome on the Titan TV Guide page, until today when it was sitting on the forum. Helped me decide that it probably is microsoft server that it's coming from.
    With extensive testing with several programs, I found nothing so, I wiped the drive the first 2 times.
    This time, I just closed the game and browser and came here to report this. I don't have the guts to test if it is the real deal or not. My backup machine blew a capacitor on the X58 m/b. Don't have a clue what the wise poor man's solution is yet.
    If you've seen this sing out please. It's aggravating me. Using the word "irrelevant" in the notification box seems to hint that it is a translation error because that word is out of context to the rest of the notification. Other than that I'm clueless. I guess I didn't say it but I did not click on anything, just shut down and booted to wipe from the bios and recover with reflect the first 2 times. This time I just closed the programs and went looking, finding nothing.

    :)

    New Trojan that Demands a Ransom

    There is a new virus out there discovered by virus hunters known as "Cryzip". The Trojan encrypts your files and then demands a $300 ransom for the decryption password to get your files back. After encrypting the files, the virus leaves a nice step-by-step guide of how to go about paying the ransom off. It's supposedly spread through email Spam, and has successfully evaded anti-virus scanners.

    3rd ransom? attempt in a week

    hacked personal computers from cyberspace hack this week

    Microsoft in general does not charge for support.

    If you are referring to the ransom-ware attack this week, Microsoft would not have been involved in the cleanup. Technicians working for the affected organisations worked through the weekend restoring data from backups.

    For the most part, recovering from these ransom-ware attacks involves:

    • Wiping the System, reinstalling everything and restoring data from backup
    • Paying the ransom (not advised) and hoping the hackers actually restore your data
    • If it is an older variant of the ransom-ware, decrypt keys are available from Europol
    • Starting over from scratch if you have no data backup

    Have you been affected by a malware attack, if so, what are you seeing on your screen . . .
