Cryptolocker Virus Advisory to Clients

Even though your computers are protected by Anti-virus software the virus may get through if the user is lured into clicking on the wrong email or web link.

Very recently we have seen the virus disguise itself as an email claiming to be a fax@[your domain] (Example: with a link to the virus on the website.
