Once the malware infects a machine, it will encrypt files and then inform the user that they must pay a ransom of $300 to unlock files within 72 hours. It does appear this 72 hour deadline has eased up in the past week, allowing a user to pay a ransom fee after this period, but at a higher price.

Instead, 2 weeks passed with no productivity.

Over the last few months we've covered myriad ways to backup and protect the important data stored on your computer - from manual backup and automatic backup to continuous backup and cloud backup integration. Understanding the different methods of backup technology will enable users to make dramatically more well-informed decisions in the effort to protect data. Now it's time to share some of the most popular blogs over the last few months.
When it comes to backup applications, not all are created equal. File backup, the most popular, falls short of protecting applications and settings, as well as the operating system. Image backup applications, while comprehensive, require most of the computer resources during the backup and are typically run on a schedule outside normal working hours. Access to the individual files requires processing a large archive and takes time.
