    Cryptolocker. Shit is super serious. It's been out for a while but I have a feeling this thing is going to gain steam and do some serious damage. It encrypts all files on or attached to your computer and demands a ransom for the decrypt key. That's right - even an attached NAS or USB drive or portable HDD that is attached to your computer will be encrypted. That means backups too. I suggest you edumacate yourselves about this nasty malware and at the least run this...

    Mac users are safe for now.

    Smart. They will figure out ways to make the malware more aggressive so stay informed. I predict this ransomware will become huge. They are making a lot of money with it. It's the first widespread destructive malware in some time.
