    More Ransomware and this one is NASTY

    A while back I got ahold of a nice bit of ransomware. It stuck my screen on a faux FBI page and told me that I must pay X amount of dollars for some type of copyright crime. As a touch they turned my webcam on and had it in a little box on the page. That one was easy to get rid of. This new one looks like it may be a bit trickier.

    Be warned.

    Earlier this week, I alerted you about a devastating ransomware virus spreading quickly online called CryptoLocker. If your computer is infected, CryptoLocker will encrypt your documents and give you four days to pay a ransom as high as $700 - sometimes only $100 if you're lucky - to get them back. - See more at: New ransomware Windows virus spreading - Tips, Reviews and Advice on All Things Digital - The Kim Komando Radio Show

    It does take a while. I get the format started and go do something else. Used to be a backup was 30 floppy disks but that was the days of 32 meg hard drives and 1200 baud modems.

I image the hard drive about once a month and save any really important documents to the thumb drive as I modify them. As the boy scouts say, "Always be prepaired"

    A good porn should only have this to read and this should come with its own laugh track.

    It's a tough risk... but someone has to take it. I love the free tube sites, they cut all the "plot" crap out of the videos and get right down to the important part. I only need a few minutes worth of the video anyways, I don't want to waste time with the part about them them knocking on the door holding a pizza box, well, unless they're knocking on her back door
