What to do when your hit with Ransomware

Malware is a type of malware that prevents or limits the user from accessing their files on their computer. This type of malware forces the user to pay the ransom through an online payment in order to get their files back. There are many different forms of ransomware and here is a list that is growing and growing.

If you find you have been hit by one of these ransomware programs you should speak to us today about removing this and we can look at recovering your data.

Unfortunately, unless you have good reliable backups that are offsite or disconnected from the PC the chances of recovering data are slim. There have been people who have paid the ransom and managed to get their data back but it’s a huge gamble and you don’t know if the virus will return later on to hold you or your business to ransom again and again.

Speak to All Star IT today, we have helped many clients get back on track after a virus attack – some were luckier than others and managed to get some data back from old backups but others haven’t been so lucky. Once All Star IT has cleaned up your pc we lock it down to help prevent future attacks. The best protection is having good antivirus, good patch management, spam filter for your emails and the most important part of all is backups – make sure you have backup!!!
