Cryptolocker Trojan Out of Commission

The DOJ has declared a victory over the Cryptolocker Trojan stating it is now out of commission

That’s very good news for computer users worldwide, unfortunately – this could be a short lived respite: Ransomware kits, which automate the process for criminals, are becoming more prevalent, Intel Security said, predicting malware infections to increase on mobile devices. U.K. security vendor Sophos detected Simplelocker, an Android Trojan that encrypts mobile files and demands payment using the similar Cryptolocker extortion scam.

The only way to protect your data from these types of attacks is to have a good, reliable backup solution that’s tested and verified on a regular basis.

Our Clients Say…

I am a general dentist and have been an ACTSmart customer for several years.  ACTSmart has consistently demonstrated expertise and fantastic customer service and are always quick to respond to my IT needs, no matter how large or small.  They have taken the time to learn and understand my unique systems and needs and efficiently navigate my practice management and dental radiograph software and hardware and protect my network from potential violation.

Additionally, they were able to recommend a trustworthy off-site back-up system that fits my needs to make sure that all of my files are safe and secure.  This was especially useful when a recent software upgrade mandated by a software company went horribly wrong and caused a loss of many of my patient records.  The staff at ACTSmart navigated this disaster wonderfully, working closely with the software companies on my behalf and providing them with the backed-up files for restoration to my system.

 

I sleep better at night knowing that ACTSmart has protected my practice and patients!
