Recently we found an Laptop infected by a piece of malware called CryptoWall 2.0. CryptoWall 2.0 is distributed via emails with .ZIP attachments that contain executables that are disguised as PDF files. These PDF files pretend to be invoices, purchase orders, bills, complaints, or other business communications.
When you double-click on the fake PDF, it will not open. Instead, the malware will infect your system with the CryptoWall infection. Your data files and folders will then become encrypted and cannot be recovered unless a ransom is paid to the creator of Cryptowall or you wipe and then restore your PC/Server from a known good backup.
The best prevention is to not open ANY attachments unless you are sure they are legitimate. If you are unsure of the attachment’s validity, call the sender of the email. Do not send an email to verify the validity because the email can be forged.
