Virus Alert: Please Read and Share this Urgent Advisory!
A serious threat to your computer networks has emerged-Cryptowall 2.0. This virus will cause your data to become inaccessible and recovery will be time-consuming and costly. We urge you to take simple, yet vital precaution to protect your data.
- Do not open any ZIP or PDF files sent through email without first confirming its authenticity. The virus often arrives masquerading under the guise of an invoice, purchase order, bill ... etc. If you open such a file, you will not know you've been infected until you try to access your data.
- If you receive any email that you are not absolutely sure of, contact the sender for verification. The Cryptowall 2.0 threat was designed to thwart firewalls and anti-virus and anti-malware software, and there is no known way to prevent infection once the file is opened.
- Remain vigilant. Though Cryptowall 2.0 is a specific threat-and one that will likely remain active for the foreseeable future-it is always wise to take extreme care in opening email attachments.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us immediately.
