So is cryptolocker really that bad?

On October 25, 2013, in news, by

So I saw an interesting comment on a web site.  Someone said that the CryptoLocker virus wasn’t a big thing.  As long as you were able to stop the process on the machine you would have an easy clean up.  I think that this person got lucky and didn’t really get hit with the real cryptolocker virus.  The one out there, by the time you see evidence of it, it’s already encrypted files on your computer and network drives and it’s too late.  The virus may be “easy” to clean up – but it’s the damage done by cryptolocker that is the real problem.

Did a few more updates the other day, probably will tweak it again.  But will also do a whitepaper on application whitelisting too.
