Warning: Super bad computer virus found on Salt Spring.

A close friend of mine has been attacked with a "Cryptolocker" type trojan virus which has locked up (encrypted) ALL of his photos. Please read the following link info. Make sure you do a "cold storage" of your files on a removable storage device/s that are not regularly attached to your computer or you might be in for a nasty suprise of losing ALL your photos if this virus gets in your machine.


Since there is, to this date, no method of recovering the files, it is imperative that you make backups of your photos.
