Announcements: High Virus Alert - CryptoLocker Ransomware

Title

High Virus Alert - CryptoLocker Ransomware 

Body

US-CERT is aware of a malware campaign that surfaced in 2013 and is associated with an increasing number of ransomware infections. CryptoLocker is a new variant of ransomware that restricts access to infected computers and demands the victim provide a payment to the attackers in order to decrypt and recover their files. As of this time, the primary means of infection appears to be phishing emails containing malicious attachments.

See the attached document attached of the CryptoLocker Malware and the damage it will cause.
