If you have been following my BLOG you would know that my family has recently suffered a loss.
To add to that loss, my sister has had her memories stolen by a cyber terrorist. The family PC has fallen victim to CBT-Locker which is a ransomware program that encrypts all of your photos and text documents with a very strong encryption. They give you the public key and tell you to send them money to get the private key.
From what I have read online, there is no counter measure at the moment, so all we can do is preserve the files and the public key and hope that someone figures out a way to reverse the encryption.
So my sister lost her husband, her oldest daughter and large part of her memories.
You can imagine that this makes me very angry and makes me wonder what kind of people stoop to extortion to fund their other despicable acts.
The message we want to send to those people is not something that I want to say here, but you can image that it would be filled with a lot of explicatives.
What I can say is “We will not pay the ransom !!!”
