Hi BB.

Only when the IP allows me to go in. I still have issues depending on my IP. Even in this forum I have issues. My icons on top are all grey, but apparentely they worked. I had trouble sticking the addresses above.


What does it say ? Is it a lie ?

Thanks.

Hernan.

This is a very rare case. More and more cybercriminals turn to ransomware. Fake antivirus business is dead, they switched to ransomware. News say next year we will see more and more ransomware

My boss got teslacrypt (info: http://nabzsoftware.com/types-of-threats/vvv-file) on his laptop with many work files encrypted and had to pay money to return files and not to lose business.
