Recently we have had some people and businesses in Perth area that been targeted and have their computer/server infected by the Cryptolocker Virus and would be lost all the data/files if they didn’t have backup strategy in place.
The notorious Cryptolocker virus has resurfaced in Australia hiding in emails from Australia Post or Telstra. Skycomm have been spending a lot of time removing this new generation Ransomware Virus. This form of the virus is unbreakable, it hijacks computer files and demands a ransom to restore them.
We like to remind you – please take precautions when opening emails/ click unknown links and ensure all your data is backed up daily in both local drive and online, it would also help to test your backup once every quarter.
Please feel free to contact SkyComm, if you have any concerns or would like us to audit, review or test your backup status.
