Client Caught with Cryptovirus

What a nasty bit of code.  Client clicked on an attachment or link and that was it.

It was awful to get rid of, eventually with a combination of tools, we managed to clear it off….but and it is a big but, all her data files were encrypted.  Now there may be ways to get them un-encrypted, but the client had Cloud Backup supplied by BCS!

We remoted into the laptop and restored all her data to the previous version.  Saved!
