Tech Expert Warns of “Ransomware”

A new ransomware is affecting computers users around the region.

Tech expert Bob Wells says the virus is compromising people’s date and telling users they need to pay a certain amount of money to get that data back.

Wells says there are a few things to look out for to avoid being impacted by the ransomware.

“If you receive an email from someone…and it doesn’t look like a standard DOC or JPEG or PDF file, do not click on it because the likelihood of getting infected [by the email] is quite high.”

Wells says it’s important to back up your data correctly in case you do get infected with the virus.
