Scam Alert Threatening Ransomware Is Going Around

What is CryptoWall 2.0? It's a form of ransomware, which means malware that infects a computer and then perpetrators demand the victims pay a ransom in exchange for the decryption keys necessary to make the computer useable again. If victims don't pay, and they don't have backups of their files, those files will be lost.

CryptoWall 2.0 is a revision of a previous product named CryptoWall, which itself is a derivative of CryptoLocker and CryptoDefense. If your computer has been infected with CryptoWall 2.0, you'll see a pop-up after the malware has encrypted your documents.

How does CryptoWall 2.0 infect computers? Cybercriminals send an email that contains a zip or PDF file, which is disguised as an invoice, purchase order, bill, etc. Once the victim double-clicks on the fake zip or PDF file, the ransomware is downloaded and installed on the computer.

After the ransomware is installed, it scans the machine for data and encrypts the data; then a notepad window opens to display instructions on how to pay the ransom fee and access the decryption service.

To protect yourself, NEVER open any zip or PDF files without verifying the sender. If you do receive a suspicious message, simply call the sender and verify prior to opening the attachment. Keep in mind that ransomware is designed to bypass firewalls and antivirus software. In addition, make sure your files are backed up and recoverable, in order to guarantee accessibility in the event of an infection.
