IMPORTANT – be careful with your email attachments!

There has been a very large run of ransomware viruses lately – you get an email that looks like an invoice, possibly from someone you know, with a zip attachment. We have had customers that have opened these with very bad results.
 
If you open these attachments, you will get a word document, that then asks to to ‘enable macros’ to view. This will infect your machine, and your files will be encrypted. The only way to decrypt them is to pay a ransom to a dodgy eastern European website, and hope you get an unlocking program in return. The best defense is to be vigilant about opening attachments, especially zip files, and to keep good backups. This new infection has bypassed many antivirus systems already. Please contact us if you would like more info.
 
Here is a sample of the emails you may recieve:
