What is CryptoLocker?
CryptoLocker is a ransomware (malicious software designed to block access to a computer system
until a sum of money is paid). It encrypts data files such as MS Word, PowerPoint, pictures, music,
videos, and so on; and targets all versions of the Windows operating system. It works by
encrypting certain files using a mixture of RSA and AES encryption.
When it has finished encrypting files, the malware displays a CryptoLocker payment program that
prompts the user to send a ransom of figures ranging between $100 and $500 in order to decrypt
the files. This ransom must be paid using MoneyPak vouchers or Bitcoins.
The screen will also display the number of hours to make the payment, or it will delete the
encryption key and the files can no longer be decrypted. Once the payment is sent and verified, the
program decrypts the files that it encrypted.
For now, there is no known way to retrieve the private key that can be used to
decrypt files without paying the ransom.
This virus is a downloader, that downloads a cryptor and starts encrypting portions of your hard

How much do you know about
Windows 8 has had a bit of a tumultuous run, something Microsoft is hoping to turn around with Windows 10.
The Questions you might want to ask is:
Windows 10? What happened to Windows 9?
Windows 7 ate 9. (I kid.) Microsoft wants us to think of the latest version as a fundamental change to how
Windows works, and the company is skipping a version number to show it.
And the Start menu?
If you hated Windows 8's full-screen Start screen, you're in luck: the new Start menu harkens back to the good old
days, sitting on the left side of the screen and presenting that familiar pop-up column of shortcuts. And if you liked
Windows 8's approach, there's something here for you too: the new menu will incorporate Live Tiles and can be
What about apps?
Apps will be coming along for the ride too, though Microsoft hasn't explained how that's going to work. We do
know that you'll be able to buy one app from the Windows Store and expect it to run on all your devices.
Developers will presumably need to make universal apps that will adjust their look and feel, depending on your
devices size and capabilities.
I actually liked those Modern apps, and bought a few. Are they still around?
It's too soon to say how Windows 8 developers will react to the changes, but Microsoft did show some of its own
full-screen Modern apps operating in a windowed mode.
Those full-screen "Modern" apps were a pain. Are they still around?
Those touch-friendly, full-screen apps that debuted with Windows 8 were alternately known as the "Metro" or
"Modern" design. For Windows 10, full-screen apps will be optional. Let's say you're using a convertible 2-in-1
device, like the Surface Pro 3, for example. When the keyboard is docked, you'll see the standard desktop with
Windows 10's "new" old-school Start menu. Once you take the device off of the keyboard base, the OS will
allow you to switch to the finger-friendly full screen mode Windows 8 users are likely familiar with.
Any improvements on that front?
Windows 10 beefs up Snap, the function that lets you quickly arrange apps side by side, with a new
quadrant layout that lets you split your display up among up to four apps. There's also support for
multiple desktops (finally), so you can keep all your work apps in one place and quickly slide back to
the desktop with your blogs and Reddit once your boss walks away. And then there's the task view
button that lives on the taskbar. Click it, and you'll get a quick look at all of your open files,
windows, and desktops.
This is Spartan
Also new to Windows 10 is Spartan: A new, clean-looking, lightweight browser built around a new
I've got a desktop, and a tablet. How will that work?
Windows 10 isn't just about PCs. The operating system will run on everything from desktops all the
way down to smartphones, and the user interface will adjust accordingly.
Will Windows 10 run on my machine?
It's too early to say. Windows 8.1 did introduce 64-bit computing requirements that ruled out some
ancient processors, but it otherwise played well with PCs that weren't too old. Suffice to say, if you're
picking up a newer device any time between now and Windows 10's release next year, you should be
good to go. Once again, if you're willing to take risks, you can check out the Windows Insider
Program for an early look.
