Colleagues, Yesterday, we received news of an emerging malware threat called CryptoLocker Ransomware. Literally within hours after receiving this information, one of our campus users was infected. The malware encrypts the the files on the computer and then demands that the user pay a fee to unencrypt the user's files. As we observed, It also has the ability to spread to file shares. Are others seeing this emerging threat? What, if anything are you doing to mitigate it?
