Current things to watch out for:

 

1. Microsoft/Google/Apple/Dropbox/Etc Emailing or Calling – Event Viewer Scam

Someone may call your phone or email you and say they are a representative with Google, Apple, Microsoft, McAfee or some computer repair company and say your computer has a virus and needs to be fixed. They will then talk you into letting them remote into your computer and show you a log of errors within Windows called Event Viewer. This is a normal log of errors in the computer and usually has lots of errors listed in it. They don’t really mean your computer is having problems. They will claim that this is a problem and they will need to fix the issues. They will ask for your credit card and then charge you roughly $300 or some other amount to fix it. After that, they will encrypt your files(pictures, docs, videos, etc) and then demand a ransom of $1000 or even more to get access to your data back. They will also change your password and lock you out completely. They will also take your credit card information and steal your identity. Do NOT give anyone remote access to your computer without properly vetting them!

 

2. Ransomware

There are now 100+ different variations of Ransomware! These are computer viruses that infect your computer and then encrypt your data and will attempt to charge you lots of money to access your files. They typically pop up notifications telling you that your data has been encrypted and you will not be able to access them without paying the ransom in Bitcoins or Phonecards. The ransom usually starts at $1000 and goes up from there. We know of a case where the ransom was over $70,000! Do NOT pay the ransom. You will never hear back from them, and will not receive the decryption key to access your files from them. The viruses also encrypt all flash drives, external hard drives, and even network shares that the computer has access to. We have had cases where the entire company was shut down and locked out by one system getting infected! Ultimately the virus has to be removed from the computer, and we have several methods of getting your data back. We currently have a 90% success rate on getting our clients data back! We have a listing of the most common decryption keys and will fight to recover your data. In the cases where we are unable to recover, we can image your data and then recover it down the road after a decryption key is found. We absolutely recommend having a data backup plan in place, this way you can always get your data back. Give us a call to discuss your options.
