By now, you've probably heard about the 75,000 Ransomware attacks that has hit 99 countries including the UK this past Friday, May 12, 2017. There are some reports of it hitting the USA as well. It is one of the broadest and most damaging cyberattacks in history.
For those not familiar with Ransomware, it is one of the most viperous forms on Malware that holds your computer hostage until you literally pay a ransom, usually $300-$500 USD. Even after you pay, it's often a scam and you never get they key to unlock your computer and it's files. What makes this particular attack so threatening, is that it did not require anyone to actually "click" on anything like an email attachment to affect them!
Don't let this be you! In just the last year, Ransomware attacks have increased 50%, up from just 20% the prior year!!! It's a huge money maker for hackers, hence the growth. There are thousands of Ransomware's out there, some laying dormant on your computer until a specific date or action activates it!
Things to help you prevent from being affected:
1) Keep up-to-date on all Windows patches
2) Keep all virus scan and malware scan software up-to-date
3) Don't open emails and attachments from even people you know if they look suspicious
4) Don't go to rogue or unknown websites.
Even if you do the above, if you don't have the proper virus and malware scan software installed, you are quite likely still vulnerable.
Due to this recent attack, for a limited time, I am offering a special: A quarterly checkup of your PC for just $225/year; less than $0.62 per day! This checkup includes a professional scan of your computer for virus/malware/ransomware PLUS an overall health check of your computer to determine other issues such as slowness and system aging issues. Enrolling in this offer will provide discounts to other services as well during your enrolled year!
