Paid a CryptoLocker Ransom With Your Credit Card?

Someone’s Stolen Your Identity!

stolen identity

CryptoLocker is one of the worst IT threats to affect Calgary businesses in a long time. A bit of malware gets onto a computer or network, locks it all down, and displays a simple message:

PAY US MONEY OR KISS YOUR DATA GOODBYE

At that point, most business owners have two options:

  1. Reboot the systems and hope you’ve backed up any important data that got locked down
  2. Send your credit card information to the cybercriminals holding you hostage

But if you’ve paid a CryptoLocker ransom with your personal credit card, you’re not just losing your money and your dignity – you’re probably also losing your identity!

With access to your credit card data, enterprising cybercriminals have the ammunition they need to start trying to steal other valuable data. They can pose as you with all sorts of institutions that use credit cards for ID, gaining more and more access to sensitive information that gives them even MORE ability to impersonate you.

That’s not to mention the fact that they’ll keep trying to get as much money off your credit card as possible.

There’s only one surefire way to protect yourself from all the issues that come with ransomware: A complete backup and business continuity solution from K&M Systems Integration.
