Virus Alert: Please Read and Share this Urgent Advisory!

A serious threat to your computer networks has emerged-Cryptowall 2.0. This virus will cause your data to become inaccessible and recovery will be time-consuming and costly. We urge you to take simple, yet vital precaution to protect your data.

  • Do not open any ZIP or PDF files sent through email without first confirming its authenticity. The virus often arrives masquerading under the guise of an invoice, purchase order, bill … etc. If you open such a file, you will not know you’ve been infected until you try to access your data.
  • If you receive any email that you are not absolutely sure of, contact the sender for verification. The Cryptowall 2.0 threat was designed to thwart firewalls and anti-virus and anti-malware software, and there is no known way to prevent infection once the file is opened.
  • Remain vigilant. Though Cryptowall 2.0 is a specific threat-and one that will likely remain active for the foreseeable future-it is always wise to take extreme care in opening email attachments.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us immediately.
