Cryptolocker Ransomware?

Have you heard about this?  This is some scary ransomware!

Cryptolocker ransomware/malware is particularly troublesome because it encrypts your documents and pictures.  The only way to decrypt the files is to pay the ransom!

If you do get infected with this, the best first step is to disconnect your PC from the network because it will stop the encryption process.  Then you need to determine how bad the damage is.  If it only encrypted files that you do really need, you can clean the malware without an issue but if you don’t have a backup and it encrypted important files you may have to pay the ransom…
