Encryption type viruses are viruses that encrypt your data and then hold it ransom. Once encrypted, there is no way to unencrypt your data without paying the ransom. Sometimes paying the ransom does not work. Data ransoms ranged from $500 upwards into the thousands.
Until recently, the best way to protect yourself from encryption type viruses is to have a backup that you disconnect from your computer/network.
There is a paid version of this cryptoprevent. The paid version is a low priced version of cryptoprevent that will update automatically as new versions of encryption type viruses become known. We feel that this added protection is very inexpensive insurance against this devastating virus.
