There’s a nasty new version of Ransomware virus that’s spreading around the world, now that’s designed to scrambling victims’ files and hold their computers hostage for a hefty payment. This dangerous malware pays homage to the super popular television show “Breaking Bad” at the same. If the PolloCrypt malware gets on your computer, hackers could hold your precious data hostage for hundreds of dollars or more.
You should also make sure you install updates and patches for your operating system and programs to make sure your computer isn’t vulnerable because of security flaws.
It’s also important to keep your eyes open for strange emails coming in through your inbox. Oftentimes, hackers can infect your computer by attaching malicious files to emails.
Remember, never open email attachments if you can’t verify the source.
