Cryptolocker ransomware continues...

18th November 2013
Last month we published a blog talking about a new type of virus threat known as Cryptolocker, a particularly nasty type of virus that has been affecting small business customers of ours in the Devon & Somerset areas.

Today, we notice that the BBC has published an article about it, after "Action Fraud" - the UK's national fraud reporting centre has caught up what is essentially old news (when we published our article a month ago, it wasn't exactly cutting edge news then either).

If you haven't read about it, please take a few minutes to check out our Blog article here:
