Back in February of 2014, we shared our survival story regarding Cryptolocker, an extremely nasty and expensive malware virus that generally spreads through email. Because Cryptolocker was recently in the news again (Warrick County Prosecutor’s Office Admits 2014 Breach), we thought it wise to continue to raise awareness so that you can take steps to protect yourself or your company from similar attacks.
Regardless of the layers of security in place, these layers of security are no match sometimes for the human factor. Even an employee of a technology company can be fooled into believing that an email attachment is genuine. And that’s just what happened. An email made it through our multiple layers of protection.
