BEWARE: A New Version of CryptoLocker Is Disguised As a Fax.  It Could Be Lurking In DropBox or Other Cloud-Storage Platforms.

cryptolockerAnother version of CryptoLocker has just been released by the criminals who created the Australian Electric Company Bill version earlier this week. Except, this version has been improved, with a different mode of delivery.

It comes in the form of a plain text email that asks you to click a link to view your fax. It’s more difficult to block these types of messages. Plus the cyber criminal is using DropBox links to target his or her victims.

This is not the first time that cyber thieves have tried using legitimate services to release their malware.  They also use many free cloud services. The reason being is that, apparently, DropBox and other cloud-storage services don’t scan their stored files for malware.  If you use these services, you can be targeted for CryptoLocker, and your data can be held hostage for payment.

Are you using DropBox or similar cloud-storage devices?  Contact {company} and we’ll tell you how we can migrate your data to a totally secure, malware-free cloud system.
