In short Cryptolocker is Trojan Horse Malware which encrypts users files with a level of encryption which cannot be decrypted. Usually users are infected by an email containing an EXE file as an attachment which when ran executes script to encrypt the users files.

A large number of our customers who are using our Anti-Spam Service will be protected from this type of malware via email by blocking the file type (.exe). However, it is still possible to receive this email via other methods i.e. physical media/websites etc . So ensure that you’re extra vigilant this festive period with regards to any emails you receive where you do not recognise the sender or if it is from a delivery company such as UPS, DPD, FedEx & TNT etc.

If you have any doubt please give Discus a call on our support number 08454 300 366 or email support@discus.co.uk
