New Windows ransomware steals passwords before encrypting files

A new ransomware is now infecting computers which not only encrypts the end user's files, but also steals passwords for anything from web sites to corporate applications in order to gain access to data.  The infection can occur from viewing an infected web site, and once it finds a vulnerable application on your computer, it silently infects the system.

As part of our data security solution at Harmony Technology Solutions, we provide both advanced firewalls that detect and block this type of malicious behavior before it reaches your PC, as well as cloud backup and data recovery solutions that allow complete restoration of files even if files are encrypted or deleted.  Add in maintenance services that ensure that all your applications are up to date, and we are able to provide a comprehensive solution that will protect you from this and all types of dangerous malware.  Call us at 217-903-2121 to get started today!
