Be aware of Cryptolocker malware

Malicious software, or malware, comes in many forms. A new category called “ransomware” may prevent access to a computer, or the data on it, unless the victim pays the malware creator money.

The Cryptolocker virus is one such ransomware that encrypts files by making them inaccessible. If you fall victim to this virus, you will not be able to unlock your files and must rely on your backups.

UT Arlington’s email system as well as computers that run System Center EndPoint Protection or McAfee software are protected from this malware.

For more information on this malware and tips on how to avoid it, access the Information Security Blog. If you are a victim of this virus, contact the Help Desk at 817-272-2208.
