We sure hope you have not had a chance to deal with the misery caused by the CryptoLocker. Just imagine a situation when someone gets your precious things, puts them in a room, locks them, and then asks you to pay a ransom in an exchange for a key. Are you terrified enough?
This is exactly what happens to your files once the CryptoLocker gets its cyber hands on them. If you want them back, there is no other option than to pay money for a virtual key in order to free your precious files. Finally, someone has found a way to end your troubles with the merciless CryptoLocker.
For what is worth, the busy little bees from the Fox IT and Fire Eye give you a chance to upload your trapped files for free and release them with a proper key. Unfortunately, this option is only available for the certain versions of the KryptoLocker. Despite this flaw, we should treat one as the good news.
It comes without saying that in this case, it all comes down to the proper prevention IT security work. Better to lock your sensitive by yourself than to wait and hope someone else will not do it for you with dishonest intentions. Do not waste your time blinking, it is the right moment for some serious IT thinking.
