The Cryptolocker ransomware continues to rein havoc on networks around the world. Ransomware is different from traditional malware in that it will hold your computer or files "hostage", demanding payment to remove the malware. This may be the worst and most widespread case of ransomware we've seen so far.
Cryptolocker is most commonly spread through email attachments with an executable or zip file, but can also spread via web links or botnets.

In order to cope with today’s ever increasing number of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, business owners need to first be familiar with this kind of computer threat so they can recognize when they are being targeted.
Then, it becomes important to understand how to identify, detect and defend ones’ systems using mitigation techniques.
Any cyber attack can bring unprecedented damage to a company, but can these damages be quantified in financial terms? This year, experts at B2B International calculated the damages stemming from cyber-attacks based on the results of a survey of companies around the world.
The survey titled, 2013 Global Corporate IT Security Risks survey, found that the average cost incurred by large companies in the wake of a cyber attack is a whopping $649,000. To arrive at the most accurate picture of costs, B2B included only incidents that had occurred in the previous 12 months. Additionally, the assessment was based on information about losses sustained as a direct result of security incidents.
The financial information of guests at Callaway Gardens was stolen by cyber-thieves who implanted malware on the Pine Mountain, GA resort’s credit and debit card systems.
A Callaway Gardens official said it is unknown how many guests may be affected after its credit card security system was compromised over the last eight months.
"We have just started a more in-depth investigation so the number of accounts has not been determined yet," said Rachel Crumbley, a spokeswoman for the resort in Pine Mountain.
Crumbley said Saturday a breach in its credit card security system started in early September and lasted until Thursday when a credit card processing company identified multiple companies, including Callaway Gardens, with fraudulent credit card activity.
