New SPAM wave of Locky Malware

Yet another variant of malware to encrypt the files on your computer, making them inaccessible until you pay the hackers a ransom for the decryptor.  This recently discovered variant of the Locky uses Encrypted JScript files to avoid detection by firewalls and anti-malware/antivirus programs.

 

 

The Malware encrypts the victims files with a strong RSA 2048 encryption algorithm until the victim pays a large fee to get them back.

 

Our network security appliances and periodic maintenance plans can prevent this type of costly interruption to your business.

Beware!! You may be adding scammers as your facebook friends!

Beware of folks sending you friend requests! It is generally a VERY ATTRACTIVE young person... but you don't really know them. Their info shows that they are from your local town. They have even checked in at local places, but if you scroll all the way to the bottom of their news feed, you will notice that they have just recently created their profile... and they aren't who they say they are! So when you add them as a friend, these scammers then have access to YOUR personal info, your news feed, photos, etc! It puts them in a better position to scam you or steal your identity!! It is pointless to have security settings if you add unknown people to your friend list!
