The gift NO ONE wanted to receive on December 25th

Email Virus

Let’s take a trip back in time. Let’s go back to December 1999, a mere 16 years ago. And my oh my, have things changed! 16 years ago, holiday shopping meant going to the mall (not shopping on your phone), and there was no such thing as a Grande Chestnut Praline Latte. There was also no YouTube and no social media, and computer viruses were a lot less advanced than they are today. December 1999 was also the month in which Prilissa, a virus found on three continents, was programmed to cause havoc if opened on Christmas Day.

Ransomware – The Nasty Type of Malware That’s On the Rise


Ransomware. The word itself sends shivers down our spines. The concept that someone could be brazen enough to infiltrate and lock your computer, and then have audacity to demand money so you can get your information restored or unlocked, is shocking and terrifying. It’s also happening with increasing frequency.

Ransomware is a type of malware that locks your computer or mobile phone and prevents you from accessing your data (all of it!) until you pay a ransom. That ransom is usually demanded in Bitcoin payment, an encrypted form of online payment that enables the hacker to collect money online and anonymously. As for the rates demanded, these can vary widely. In some cases, victims are asked to pay hundreds of dollars; in other cases (usually those that target businesses and corporations) victims are asked to pay several thousand dollars.
