Affected by GameOver Zeus/Cryptolocker?

Unread postby carolyn_jarvis » August 26th, 2015, 1:00 am

Hi,

I'm a Canadian journalist doing a substantial (current affairs) TV piece on cyber crime for national broadcast this fall - with a particular focus on the GameOver Zeus botnet.
I'm trying to connect with anyone in North American (particularly Canada - but the US also) who was affected by GOZ or Cryptolocker.

If you - or someone you know might have been affected - please drop me a line.

With thanks
Carolyn

The Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! is not the place for a post of this type, it is the place for people to post in who need help with their computers, so I have moved your topic to a more appropriate place.

If you're wanting information on specific Ransomware infections, I suggest you also post at Bleeping Computer, as they specialise in those types of infection, and there is a wealth of information available on that subject over there.

For information on Cryptolocker see ... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-r ... nformation ... though most supposed Cryptolocker victims these days are actually victims of TorrentLocker ... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ ... r-copycat/

If you're wanting to make contact with actual victims I would talk to the site owner over there, Lawrence Abrams (Grinler) as he will be able to tell you where to post your request to get the best feedback.
