About this talk

As of September 2013, a new and vicious form of malware has been wreaking havoc. CryptoLocker belongs to a family of malware called "ransomware", which is designed to extort money from victims by denying them access to their personal files. It targets all Windows Operating Systems, from Windows XP to Windows 8, and typically remains unnoticed by victims until it's too late and the damage is irreparable. This presentation will cover how threats like CryptoLocker get around traditional security measures, why they are so dangerous, and the Webroot solution.
