Malware Is On The Rise

Malware Is On The Rise. There are a few new viruses out there, but the latest threat is called, Bad Rabbit. It’s a nasty ransomware virus that forces you to pay “them” in bitcoin currency in order to unlock your system. (Backup your files) The interesting thing about this Malware, there’s a timer on the screen, the longer you wait, the more you have to pay to unlock your system. (Backup your files) Bad Rabbit ransomware attacks are quickly spreading throughout Europe as we speak. Another thing I heard, the Bad Rabbit Ransomware is disguising itself as Adobe Flash. Be VERY cautious when updating your Adobe Flash player. If you want to update your Adobe Flash player securely, go here.

As for Expert Computer Help, October was one of our busiest months for Malware removal. Not just removing Malware from the Windows operating system, but WordPress as well. Hackers got into a few of our client sites as well as personal. Everything had to be cleaned!
