Cryptolocker Targets the UK

In one of our posts on internet security, we covered the increasing threat of a new type of ransomware called Cryptolocker. The malware, when installed on a user’s computer, encrypts their files and then demands payment to decrypt them. The user is presented with a timer that counts down and an ominous message explaining that if payment isn’t received before the timer reaches zero, all of the files will be destroyed with no chance of them ever being recovered.
