CryptoLocker computer virus is real and nasty. Beware!

by Dr. Eowyn

computer virus

There's a very nasty computer virus called CryptoLocker that targets computers running Microsoft Windows.

First surfacing in September 2013, the virus may be disguised as a legitimate email attachment. When you open the attachment, however, unlike other viruses that simply delete your files, thereby allowing for the possibility of some file recovery, CryptoLocker will securely encrypt them using a special private key.

When your computer's been infected by CryptoLocker, you'll see a message like this:

CryptoLocker

Recovery of your files is impossible without CryptoLocker's encryption key that they'll give you only in exchange for a ransom payment.

That is why CryptoLocker is called a ransom malware.

The ransom must be paid by a stated deadline through either Bitcoin or a pre-paid voucher.

Although the CryptoLocker virus itself is readily removed, the files in your computer remain encrypted until you pay the ransom. Many say that the ransom should not be paid, but do not offer any way to recover files. To make things worse, paying the ransom is no guarantee that your files will be decrypted and restored to you. Other malware has employed similar tactics in the past, but CryptoLocker's encryption is much more secure and is currently not possible to crack.

The steps to guard against CryptoLocker are the same good practices that should be employed to guard against any malware attack or hardware failure:

1. Make sure you're using antivirus software and that it's kept up to date. Thankfully, most antivirus applications can now detect and remove CryptoLocker, but are only of use if they catch it before the encryption occurs.

2. Make sure that you regularly back up all your data. These backups should be in a form that's disconnected from your computer by using an external USB drive that you don't keep permanently connected to your computer. CryptoLocker will seek out any connected USB drives and network shares, and attempt to encrypt those files, too. This can also apply to files being synced to Cloud services, although you should often be able to retrieve previous, and therefore unencrypted, versions of these files via the Cloud service provider. Users of Windows starting with XP Service Pack 2 may also be able to retrieve previous (and therefore unencrypted) versions of their files, by right-clicking on an encrypted file and selecting "Properties," then "Previous Versions."

3. Email is CryptoLocker's primary mode of attack, so avoid opening any email attachments from untrusted sources or that appear in any way suspicious. This should include attachments sent from banks or financial institutions and, particularly in the case of CryptoLocker, from courier companies or from Companies House.

4. Make sure the email scanning feature of your antivirus software is configured and enabled.

PCAdvisor suggests that you check right now whether CryptoLocker has found its way onto your PC by downloading and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. This will scan for the Trojan and remove it for you if discovered.

Fwd: THE NEXT LIE DEMOCRATS WILL RUN ON







http://www.wnd.com/2013/12/the-next-lie-democrats-will-run-on/

The next lie Democrats will run on

Exclusive: Joseph Farah sees budget rhetoric as latest attempt to hoodwink Americans

Published: 19 hours ago

by Joseph Farah

Republicans are salivating about running in 2014 on the Democrats' last big lie – Obamacare.

But Democrats are preparing the next big lie – and no one is paying attention, no is disputing it.

That new lie, already being told over and over again, will form the basis for the Democrats' uphill challenge to divert public opinion from the last one – or, more accurately, the last series of lies:

  • You can keep your doctor.
  • You can keep your health-care insurance.
  • If you have insurance, you don't have anything to worry about.
  • The Affordable Care Act is about insuring more people.
  • The Affordable Care Act is about affordable health care.
  • We have to pass this bill to see what's in it.
  • And so on.

It may seem like a daunting, even impossible, mission for the Democrats. After all, who could possibly forget or overlook the deliberate deceptions the party threw at Americans over and over and over knowing all along none of them had any basis in truth?

But if you haven't figured out yet the Democrats are skilled at this game and have powerful allies in the media and other powerful cultural institutions who will make their job easier, then you need to get a clue.

The 2014 midterm elections are still almost a year away. And Democrats are already tipping their hand as to the next big diversion.

I've written about this before, but almost no one on has called them on it. Few have seen the handwriting on the wall. Barack Obama is still telling this new lie every chance he gets – and it goes unchallenged.

So what is the next big lie?

In his most recent press conference, Obama reiterated that he and his party are attempting to pull off a "historic deficit reduction" campaign. He claimed they had reduced the deficit by 50 percent. He even claims that Republicans are trying to thwart this effort.

Now let's examine the facts.

No actual deficit numbers have been released by the White House for 2013 – only an estimate. Let's assume, for the moment, that estimate of $759 billion is accurate. If Obama reduced the deficit by 50 percent, that would mean the higher number would need to $1.5 trillion. But the highest deficit ever recorded in American history was $1.4 trillion. That came in 2009. That deficit included $800 billion in government "stimulus" spending that was approved by both houses of Congress when they were controlled by Democrats and signed into law by Obama.

Prior to that, the largest deficit ever recorded in American history was $459 billion in 2008.

So what we have is a president who nearly tripled the size of the deficit in his first year in office and now wants to take credit for bringing it down 50 percent, though actually it was a 46.3 percent reduction. On top of that, he has presided over the five largest deficits in history.

What he is not telling the American people is that he and his party were primarily responsible for creating the largest deficits.

Did they have help from Republicans in creating the mess?

Absolutely.

Did they have help from Republicans in reducing the deficit?

Actually, that's the wrong question.

The truth is Democrats fought Republicans every step of the way, proclaiming any and every effort to reduce or contain spending increases was heartless, cruel, would result in children dying of hunger and being denied medical care and would cause the oceans to rise in an apocalyptic disaster due to climate change.

You might think deficit reduction, if it's real, would be a Republican accomplishment. Obama has already successfully hijacked the issue from Republicans – and the campaign has officially not yet begun. It's the equivalent of the kind of political jujitsu Democrats pulled off in the 1960s when uniformly Democratic elected officials were standing in schoolhouse doors blocking black children from enrolling and ever since have claimed to be the leading force behind civil rights leadership.

Can they really pull this off?

Never underestimate the inability of Republicans to make their case.

Never underestimate the ability of Democrats to tell the big lie with a straight face.

Never underestimate the eagerness of the statist, establishment press to obscure the truth.

Fwd: Obama Rejects Muslim Brotherhood's "Terrorist" Designation





They are his "Mo's Bros n da Hood".


Obama Rejects Muslim Brotherhood's "Terrorist" Designation

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On December 27, 2013

While Egypt is busy fighting the Islamic terrorists that Obama won't fight, Kerry is busy pleading with Egypt to stop fighting Islamic terrorists.

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday expressed widespread concern over the military-backed Egyptian government's crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood, days after the once ruling group was designated a terrorist organization.

Kerry and Fahmy "agreed that there can be no place for violence in Egypt and that the Egyptian people deserve peace and calm," Psaki said.

But the secretary of state also "underscored the need for an inclusive political process across the political spectrum that respects the fundamental human rights of all Egyptians in order to achieve political stability and democratic change."

A US official told Reuters that Egypt was going "way too far" in the crackdown, adding that the Obama administration had no intention of taking any action against Cairo in response, or following suit in labeling the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

Unsurprisingly, Obama Inc. is not about to begin arresting its own Muslim Brotherhood security advisers or any of their other terrorist cronies.

Inclusive political process has always been code for a Muslim Brotherhood takeover. Every time Obama, Kerry, Rice or Psaki spew that nonsense, they're calling for theocratic terrorist tyranny.

The United States is "deeply concerned" about the worsening climate for freedom of assembly and peaceful expression in Egypt, the State Department said, Monday night.

"The implementation of Egypt's restrictive demonstrations law has led to an increase in arrests, detentions, and charges against opposition figures, human rights activists, and peaceful demonstrators, and sends a chilling message to civil society at large," said the statement from department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

Interestingly enough there was no such concern when the Muslim Brotherhood was in power and was ruthlessly squashing protests. Obama Inc. refused to stop shipping them weapons or helping them suppress the opposition.

That's still what Obama Inc. is doing.

Fwd: Sharia's Protector :: SteynOnline







 

Sharia's Protector

Rohullah Qarizada is one of those Afghans you used to see a lot on American TV in the immediate aftermath of the Taliban's fall. Trimly bearded, dapper in Western suit and tie, he heads the Afghan Independent Bar Association in Kabul. Did you know Kabul had a bar association? A few years back, I ran into one of the U.S. prosecutors who helped set it up, with a grant from the Swedish foreign ministry. Mr. Qarizada currently sits on a committee charged with making revisions to the Afghan legal code. What kind of revisions? Well, for example: "Men and women who commit adultery shall be punished based on the circumstances by one of the following punishments: lashing, stoning."

As in stoning to death. That's the proposed improvement to Article 21. Article 23 specifies that said punishment shall be performed in public. Mr. Qarizada gave an interview to Reuters, explaining that the reintroduction of stoning was really no big deal: You'd have to have witnesses, and they'd better be consistent. "The judge asks each witness many questions," he said, "and if one answer differs from other witnesses then the court will reject the claim." So that's all right then.

Stoning is making something of a comeback in the world's legal codes — in October the Sultan of Brunei announced plans to put it on his books. Nevertheless, Kabul has the unique distinction of proposing to introduce the practice on America's watch. Afghanistan is an American protectorate; its kleptocrat president is an American client, kept alive these last twelve years only by American arms. The Afghan campaign is this nation's longest war — and our longest un-won war: That's to say, nowadays we can't even lose in under a decade. I used to say that, 24 hours after the last Western soldier leaves Afghanistan, it will be as if we were never there. But it's already as if we were never there: The last Christian church in the country was razed to the ground in 2010.

At this point, Americans sigh wearily and shrug, "Afghanistan, the graveyard of empire," or sneer, "If they want to live in a seventh-century s***hole, f*** 'em." But neither assertion is true. Do five minutes' googling, and you'll find images from the Sixties and early Seventies of women in skirts above the knee listening to the latest Beatles releases in Kabul record stores. True, a stone's throw (so to speak) from the capital, King Zahir's relatively benign reign was not always in evidence. But, even so, if it's too much to undo the barbarism of centuries, why could the supposed superpower not even return the country to the fitful civilization of the disco era? The American imperium has lasted over twice as long as the Taliban's rule — and yet, unlike them, we left no trace.

Seven years ago, in my book America Alone, I quoted a riposte to the natives by a British administrator, and it proved such a hit with readers that for the next couple of years at live stage appearances, from Vancouver to Vienna, Madrid to Melbourne, I would be asked to reprise it — like the imperialist version of a Beatles cover band. The chap in question was Sir Charles Napier, out in India and faced with the practice of suttee — the Hindu tradition of burning widows on the funeral pyres of their husbands. General Napier's response was impeccably multicultural: "You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: When men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours."

India is better off without suttee, just as Afghanistan would be better off without child marriage, honor killing, death for apostasy, and stoning for adultery. What my readers liked about my little bit of Napier karaoke at live appearances was its cultural cool. It wasn't an argument for more war, more bombs, more killing, but for more cultural confidence. In the long run, that's more effective than a drone. For the least worst two-thirds of a century in its history, the vast fractious tribal dump of Sudan was run by about 200 British civil servants. These days, I doubt the smallest Obamacare branch office makes do with fewer than 200 "navigators." Yet, alert to the obsolescence of the mid-20th-century social programs, the Right remains largely blind to the similarly too-big-to-fail model of the American way of war. No serious person can argue that we're not spending enough money. The problem is we waste so much of it — to the point where in Afghanistan the Western occupation accounts for 97 percent of GDP, and all we have built is another squalid sharia state.

The American way of war is to win the war in nothing flat, and then spend the next decade losing the peace. The American people have digested that to the point where they assume that, no matter how "unbelievably small" (as Kerry promised of Syria) the next intervention is, it's a fool's errand. The rest of the world grasps it, too. If Hamid Karzai treats Washington with contempt and gets away with it, why expect the Iranians to behave any differently? A nation responsible for almost half the planet's military spending goes into battle with the sentimental multiculti fantasist twaddle of Greg Mortensen's Three Cups of Tea as its strategy manual — and then wonders why it can't beat goatherds with fertilizer.

Incidentally, I'd be interested to know which particular fellow at the Pentagon ordered that a copy of Three Cups of Tea be included in every Kandahar-bound kitbag. He should be fired. Come to think of it, he should be stoned.
