Cryptolocker is a form of ransom malware, or ransomware, spread by cybercriminals. Computers that are infected with this virus are locked out of accessing certain files unless the user pays a ransom.
Cryptolocker most often occurs as a result of an intentional cyberattack in which malware is spread as a Trojan to a victim's computer via a phishing scheme or suspicious URL link. The Cryptolocker then encrypts the user's files behind the scenes. An infected computer will be "locked out" or unable to access these critical files. Typically, there is a pop-up window with a countdown timer, intended as a scare tactic to convince the user to send a payment or else the encrypted files will never be accessible again. The Cryptolocker may also slow down performance of all programs on the infected computer.
Paying the ransom to the attacker can remove the virus, but is not recommended. In fact, the FBI even actively discourages victims of ransomware attacks from paying the ransom.
DominionTech's Cryptolocker removal tools and software can help scan for all kinds of ransomware as well as remove the malicious software. We'll also ensure you have appropriate firewall and network security solutions in place. Using an effective software solution that can proactively monitor for potential malware attacks and remove ransomware is the best way to defend against Cryptolocker and other malware infections.
Additionally, our Cryptolocker prevention services are available to strengthen your computer network's security against ransomware attacks. Preventing your computers from being infected in the first place is a much easier cybersecurity strategy than trying to remove malware from an infected computer.
