Sunapee Police Warn of Computer Malware Scam
The Sunapee Police Department is warning about an email computer scam. The malware is nicknamed, “Locky” and is disguised as an invoice attachment. Locky is insidious because it changes your file names and encrypts all of your data as it works its way through your local and networked computers. Once encrypted, your files can only be restored if you send ransom in exchange for a decryption key.
Currently, Locky is appearing as an email message with a subject line that says “Attention to Invoice #123456” along with a message such as “Please see the attached invoice (a Microsoft Word Document) and remit payment according to the terms shown at the bottom of the invoice.” The malicious macros are contained in the fake invoice DO NOT OPEN. If you receive an email like this, alert your IT department immediately.
Outside of paying the ransom, the most effective way of restoring your system is to complete a full software reinstall from your system backups. Because this method can result in lost data, remember to make routine backups of your data.
