New dangerous Malware

I imagine that alot of people out there have already heard about this, but just in case you haven't, there's an apparent new malware thing out there that comes in pairs, the names that I've seen for it are GameOver Zeus and CryptoLocker.  They're distributed through the typical important official looking e-mails from wherever.

GameOver Zeus is a keylogger, it'll monitor your keystrokes for bank passwords and account names and the like, once this is done CryptoLocker is activated which then proceeds to encrypt the files on your computer, and the creator of the malware holds them at ransom.  Once infected, your computer joins the network in spreading the malware.

The network has, however, been temporarily broken and there is a very small window two-week window to ensure that your computer is secure, FBI, Europol, and the UK's National Crime Agency, the ones that broke the network, have said that after this window they suspect the criminal will potentially unleash a large scale cyber-attack.

What was shown to me as recommendations to secure your computer are:

Up-to-date security that checks download links and e-mail attachments, this is vital to have in protecting yourself from this.

Update your Operating System.  The latest version of your OS would of course have better security.

Back up your system and files, it will help to make CryptoLocker less of a threat.

And lastly, using a 2-Step Authentication.  This last step is something that requires randomly generated codes to confirm online purchases and transfers.

All the information I've stated here can be found via this link, this is where I got the information

Snopes report on CryptoLocker

Snopes report on GameOver Zeus

There's not too much to say about myself, aside from the fact that I write. In my opinion, my stories are crap, but the people who read and comment on them seem to like the stories, so I can't complain.

OKSO. Comic thing. Should I hurry up and make it?

Well, I don't really use FA at all, but alright.  Though you're always welcome back in the chat if you want, several of us are still there.

I'd be fine with either of these things. I just finished bawling my eyes out for the last hour. I was looking back at all the old memories from everyone here. It's too much to say goodbye to everyone

Well to be honest, I don't remember why you stopped coming on way back when.  But I guess everyone had their reasons, a lot of old members stopped joining. >.>;
