Recently I was the victim of a ransomware virus. I couldn't believe it - an unknown, shadowy figure or figures was offering to restore my files - which now looked like a mass of hieroglyphics when opened - if I would send them $300 (Visa, Discover and Paypal gladly accepted.) What?

Read on, friends - and take steps to protect your computer, of you haven't already.
Have a great week!
