Understanding new-age security threats is important. You need to know how they infect your computer and how you can protect yourself from attacks, and CyberLocker is not one to be taken lightly.
What is CyberLocker?
CyberLocker is a type of malware that infects your computer, locks your files, and holds you for ransom, literally. This type of threat is more commonly known as ransomware. CyberLocker infects mostly unexperienced computer users by saying their computer is in danger. This prompts the user to install their software and it takes over their machine, locking important files and rendering them unusable. CyberLocker gives you a timeline in which you are expected to pay or your files will be lost, forever. CyberLocker is advanced and can spread to linked cloud storage, network drives, USB sticks, and other moveable storage options.
How Does It Infect Your System?
CyberLocker Ransomware is a Trojan horse; it hits your system hard. Its primary way of spreading is through email, but isn’t limited to the ways you may accidentally spread it. There are many file types it can hijack and disguise itself as an important document or letter. After the infection starts, it spreads and can become uncontrollable. You will know when you are infected because it is an in-your-face approach.
