Recently a new Ransomware virus named TeslaCrypt has been infecting personal and business computers. The virus encrypts your word, excel, and PDF files. Furthermore, it encrypts all the photos stored on your hard drive. Currently it’s recommended that everyone make a data backup of your important files.

I know a few people whose computers were infected with the TeslaCrypt Ransomware virus. It’s devastating to open your computer and find all of your files encrypted.

I've been very lucky and haven't gotten any viruses on my computer in a very long time. My friend however has had a lot of problems with this virus and he lost a lot of important family photos because of it. Does anyone know if anti-virus software will prevent this one from attacking?

This is so scary, I can’t survive a week (if not a single day) at work without the files in my computer. Reading this makes me want to hurry and back up my whole computer, but I left my external hard disk drive at work and I’m off work for a few days. Talk about timing.

Wow, this is scary. I practically live on my laptop. I had my internet company actually shut me down once due to a virus on my computer that I was not even aware of. Thankfully, they had me bring it in and fixed it for free.

I take a data backup every day and have two backups including a hard drive that I keep beside me at all times. I take no chances because if you lose your data it can be a big problem getting back what you need. It can also mean loss of confidential information like clients' contact details.

I have never had problems with viruses for a long time but with this new update, I am seeing the need to frequently back up my data. There is nothing as catastrophic as having all the documents distorted.
It is better to take precaution and be safe.
