    I was talking about Bitcoin and MoneyPak on another forum which got me to thinking I would post this info on CryptoLocker along with links to sites that show how to deal with it or protect your machines from becoming infected.

    The first is an article where Lawrence Abrams of BleepingComputer is interviewed. The other link is to the BC site where they have been discussing the problem since September along with other links which show what to expect and how to approach the problem if you are infected, along with prevention measures.






    The following is the link to the BC discussion which is quite long. The main thing is the first post includes the link which will take you to the article on dealing with it.

    Here's an interesting twist on conventional approaches to dealing with these type of programs.
