cryptolockerCryptoLocker, a new “ransomware” virus, began making the rounds several months ago. But a particularly virulent strain of the infection popped up in mid-September, affecting individuals and business owners alike.

The malware takes hold in a variety of ways: after a user clicks on a link or attachment in a spam email; via exploit kits on hacked websites; or through Trojans that pretend to be required programs to view online videos. Once installed, CryptoLocker scans a computer’s local and network drives, encrypts over 50 different file types, and then demands anywhere from $350-$1000 to de-encrypt them, even if you pay the money you never get the files they just keep asking for more and more until you give up.

anonymousI know many of you are concerned about how easy it is to trace your online activity and how that information can be used and while I am not suggesting you engage in criminal activity it occurred to me that the collar bomber who attempted to extort money from the pulver family by placing a fake collar bomb around 17 year old Madeleine Pulver’s neck could have easily avoided detection.

win 8 photoIt’s been 8 months since the release of Windows 8 and I have for the most part  have been able to place it low on the to-do list. There are 2 reasons for this one is it’s confusing interface and secondly it has not been received with enthusiasm in the market place.

However with Windows XP support ending soon I have to decided to address it and discover if it is something end users would like and or need.
