All About Cryptolocker

Cryptolocker was released to Earth in September 2013. It has affected millions of PCs. The new Prisionlocker is a sort of axis of evil toolkit. It is being passed out for free on the Internet.  Any person can download it and modify it to be their own personal CryptoLocker. We expect hundreds of variants to come out and get people’s personal, confidential and financial information and hold it hostage for money. It’s the new appstore for organized crime.

DisasterBackup has prevented customers from having to pay thousands of dollars in ransom to the criminals behind the Cryptolocker virus.
