Imagine losing access to all of your critical data out of blue then you are being forced by criminals who demand payment in order to retrieve. This is a new malware known as Ransomware.

Ransomware silently encrypts your files, before demanding payment for their return – often with a time limit.

It targets your most valuable files, like photos, videos, and documents, it can also lock down system files, your web browser, applications, and entire operating system unusable.

How did it get into my computer?

It is spread via malicious email links and attachments – often concealed by changing the file extension and compressing the malicious code into a zip file. Opening the file infects your system.

Ransomware can also be bundled into other applications, such as games, video players, etc. So any application from an unknown or untrusted publisher is a potential risk upon installation.

Once on your system, ransomware works in the background, connecting to a remote server to encrypt single files, whole directories of files, or complete drives.

This is a common phone scam. Someone calls you at home or at work indicating that they are a computer security expert from Microsoft or another legitimate company. They sound legitimate. They tell you that they have detected malware or a virus on your PC or and that they can help you fix it. They will ask you to turn on your computer so that they can walk you through the fix.

The scammer may then:
•Obtain remote access to your PC or laptop and are then able to access your personal data;
•Get you to download malware; or
•Ask for money in return for “protection” from the malware that is not really on your device.

I have used HJ Tech for many years for ALL my IT needs at home and in a small business! There is nothing too small or inconsequential that Hiten won't take the time to discuss or fix and he never makes you feel like your asking dumb questions. Conversely, he has taken on large projects such as developed Web sites, network home/small business computers-printers-scanners and restored desktop/laptops and transferred all prior data in a timely and efficient manner. Moreover, he does it all at a cost much less than you can find in the big box stores or even on the internet. If Hiten can't figure something out, he always surprises me by going to the internet to find the answer and get the job completed! I would highly recommend HJ Tech for All your IT needs!

Top Priority: Security

I am a novice to the internet technological world. So when I received a Google alert that a "sign-in attempt to my account was blocked", my goal was to make my laptop inaccessible to anyone. It was Hiten who secured my laptop. Hiten's vast knowledge of hi-tech applications has eased my mind. Within his three visits to my home, my laptop is secure, a new printer is configured to my laptop, my network applications are updated between my Apple TV and laptop, and I am more confident because of the knowledge Hiten shared with me. My iTunes app is updated and "I'm So Excited" because I now have Facebook.
