Nasty ransomware going around that locks up your files and requires you to pay to get them unlocked

If it is important, always backup your machine to a local hard drive and to the cloud (Carbonite or BackBlaze for example)

Did the updates yesterday, then ran a full scan. Took care of a couple minor issues.

If you already have a backup of your files prior to the ransom note what is the next step

If you get hit, you wipe the computer and restore to a point prior to the infection. If an older machine, get a newer one and restore the files.

Vic - If you really got hit let me know
