Cryptolocker is a dangerous ransomware, which was clearly released by the same group of cyber criminals that is responsible for releasing FBI virus, Police Central e-crime Unit virus, Department of Justice virus and many other threats. Just like previously mentioned viruses, Cryptolocker blocks down personal user’s files and displays a huge warning that asks to pay a $300 USD ransom. However, there are some new things about this threat: Cryptolocker locks down those files using an asymmetric encryption, what means that in order to reach your affected files you will need to know two different keys. So, while the most of previous ransomware versions could have been eliminated by using specific instructions, this threat finds a way to resist them. It seems that the only solution is to get the second, private, key, which is known only to cyber criminals. According to Cryptolocker’s warning, the user has only a certain amount of time to pay a ransom and recover the connection to files. Otherwise, he/she can say ‘goodbye’ to them.
