Almost everyday now we see reports in the press about high profile organisations falling foul of the ever increasing risk of crypto virus’s. This BBC news article today is about a staff member wiping out Devon councils files since 2015. These viruses encrypt files so that you can no longer access them. The only way to get your data back is to restore it from a backup or to attempt to pay the ransom (don’t pay the ransom as we have never seen this work successfully)
