Latest Threat: Cryptolocker and GameOver Zeus
This week the UK National Crime Agency and the FBI, working with Symantec and other partners, were able to significantly disrupt two cybercrime operations: Gameover Zeus botnet and Cryptolocker ransomware network.
Gameover Zeus was first developed in September 2011, and runs software on an infected device, which is then used to intercept online banking transactions, defrauding customers and banks. Cryptolocker is a new form of ransomware, which works by encrypting files on the victim’s hard-drive, then demanding payment for the key to decrypt.
Up-to-date Internet Security Product will successfully identify these threats and prevent infection. Symantec has also released a tool, which can help with clean-up infections, which are harder to remove. For a device infected with Cryptolocker the only solution is to restore data from a backup, which again could be provided by Norton 360 Multi-Device.
How can I avoid infection?
If you receive an e-mail with an attachment - DO NOT open it unless it is expected. Examples would be invoices for unknown purchases, bank statements (which are never e-mailed).
DO NOT click on website links to download files unless you have requested them.
Make sure that your security software is up-to-date to prevent infections from occurring
Run regular full scans of your computers
If you have been infected with Cryptolocker, do not pay the ransom. Payment to cybercriminals only encourages campaigns that are more malicious. There is no guarantee that payment will lead to the decryption of your files.
