My New Years Resolution for 2013 is that everyone keeps a backup of their important data !
Reason: It’s likely that Ransomware will continue to spread in 2013, and the only effective solution is to have a backup, that is not normally connected to the PC.
Symantec Whitepaper: Ransomware a growing menace
After infecting your PC, ransomware can encrypt your personal data and then display a message encouraging you to pay for the data to be un-encrypted. Some messages say your PC has been locked by police due to downloading illegal material, and you must pay a fine before your data will be released, earning the bad guys $5 million a year.
It’s quick and easy to get a decent backup in place, using online storage, or a USB drive and some automated backup software. This protects your important data from ransomware and/or Hard Drive failures.
