iNET-PC Helps Fight Ransomware Attacks

Have you been infected by ransomware?

Signs of a ransomware infection include:

  • Inability to access files, including images, audio, and video
  • Altered file names
  • Message demanding payment for restoration of data

Ransomware now generates around a billion dollars a year for hackers, and the latest research indicates it’s here to stay. Most ransomware is contracted through email links and attachments. It encrypts data files on home and business computers and displays a message demanding payment to unlock the files. 
iNET-PC’s tech team helps individuals and companies prevent ransomware attacks, retrieve locked files, restore computer function and give computer owners peace of mind.

If you’re unsure, err on the side of caution and contact iNET-PC. It’s far easier to protect against ransomware than fight a full-blown attack.

Protect your small business from ransomware attacks

Ransomware attacks targeting businesses, schools, government bodies and healthcare facilities are on the rise. Once launched, ransomware can spread through network connections and block access to entire databases. When larger and higher-value data sets are threatened, ransoms grow, making ransomware especially problematic for Milwaukee-area businesses.

Learn more about ransomware

Generally, there are two types of ransomware: encrypting and locker. Encrypting ransomware blocks system files by adding an encryption to each file. Locker ransomware blocks you from your operating system, so you can’t access your desktop or any applications, essentially freezing your computer altogether.

Take precautions against Ransomware attacks—what you can doComputer Virus Detected

  • BE VIGILANT: Don’t open files or click links from unknown sources. Be wary of forwarded emails. Not sure? Scan all email links and attachments with anti-virus software.
  • BACK UP YOUR DATA: Back up your computer to an external drive (and keep unplugged when not in use) or cloud backup service (keep service turned off when not in use).
  • UPDATE SOFTWARE: Be sure your operating systems and applications are up to date with the latest patches.
  • PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY: Don’t give out personal information when solicited – that “IT expert” who called asking for your SSN is not on the level.
  • USE REPUTABLE ANTI-VIRUS PROTECTION: No antivirus software is foolproof, but they can prevent many types of attacks.

Additional Ransomware Tips for Businesses –

  • Limit data access: Reduce the number of employees who have virtual access to data files.
  • Diversify data storage locations: Don’t store all your data in one file.
  • Educate your staff: Teach safe computer practices, specifically warning against opening unknown attachments and links.
  • Improve communication: Instruct employees to report strange things immediately, and inform them quickly if a problem is detected.
