Ransomware Update – The Threat Continues, by DoctorLaptop

Ransomware Update – The Threat Continues, by DoctorLaptop
Despite what you may have heard about a solution found to stop the recent ransomware attacks the threat is not gone. Be sure you have protected your computers. A new wave of attacks has begun and we should expect several more waves of attacks in coming months. The new attacks don’t only encrypt your data like classic ransomware. Instead some hijack your system and run hacker programs hidden in the background while your computer is on. This is known in tech jargon as turning your computer into a “bot”. As a result your computer gets slow and all your data and info are exposed. Hackers use armies of bots to accomplish hacking schemes that require massive numbers of computers focused on a task, such as doing “denial of service attacks” and “mining” crypto-currency. Read this article for an explanation in easy to understand terms.  Contact me if you need help or have questions. Email: doctorlaptop@protonmail.com or Mobile 675 993 069 (after 11am please).
