sagarwa9at December 08,2015 Some great safety tips highlighted by this video. If everyone follows these tips then cyber attacks can be minimized by a great percentage
busterhaxat December 10,2015 I'm curious how these types of malware will evolve as new generations that grow up learning code in grade school come about.
stadkalat January 28,2016 How can antivirus find the cryptlocker as the signatures of the program/file is not unique and the antivirus functions with the help of signatures only.
Cant we reverse engineer the application and find the encryption algorithm that has been used and try to de-crypt the files with the help off decrypters.
CCotton10at February 05,2016 This demonstrated some pretty damaging stuff. I bet the people that wrote the code are making a bundle from this unethical practice. It emphasizes the needs to protect your computer to protect these type of intrusions. It also emphasizes the need for the ability to go after these type of criminals to prevent these type of attacks from spreading.
BrianDaugetteat February 12,2016 Interesting demonstration of cryptolocker in action and demonstrates the usefulness of backing up files. I wonder with the rise in cloud based file storage if the actors behind cryptolocker have looked into trying to capture usernames and passwords for those services, then they'd possibly be able to hold those files for ransom too. It would probably be too difficult since many folks keep local back ups, or cloud based services could back up the files.
