INC Technologies has been seeing a resurgence of the CryptoWall Virus infecting computers at an alarming rate. What’s even worse is now, it encrypts a file’s name and data, which makes it even more difficult to diagnose what files are important and what doesn’t need to be recovered.
When CryptoWall 4.0 infiltrates the computer, it injects itself into your Web Browser and disables System Restore, Shadow Volume Copies, as well as Windows Startup Repair. In turn, that leaves the typical computer user completely vulnerable to stop the encryption from happening, if there is no decent antivirus software available as a capable barrier.
What happens next if the CryptoWall invades your data, is that it encrypts the data of all your local drives, removable drives, and mapped network drives; once it has completed encrypting your files it sends a ransom note that explains what has happened and how the only way to regain your data is to purchase a “decrypter.”
Ransomware, which is very similar to CryptoWall 4.0, is usually transmitted through spam emails, websites that are compromised, or malware. Secured firewalls and antivirus software are important but they cannot fully protect against new threats that arise on a daily basis. A resolution that would best fit your company would be to contact INC Technologies so that your business is able to have a remote backup solution to fall back on, incase anything were to happen.
