A crypto virus can really ruin your day. They are a form of ransomware which encrypts your data then demands a ransom be paid to the cyber-crooks to get your files back. But you can avoid crypto viruses by knowing how to identify them and taking a few steps to avoid infection and quickly recover your files if you do get infected.
Scammers are getting really good at making legitimate-looking phishing emails. But accidentally clicking a link could result in identity theft, destruction of your data, stolen credentials or severe virus infection that will cost you thousands of dollars.
