The Crypto virus is totally unlike anything you have encountered in the past.  Unlike other forms of malware that can disrupt your web browsing, slow your machine to a crawl or pop up a seemingly endless stream of annoying ads, this bug ratchets your angst up several levels.  That's because not only can Crypto encrypt your hard drive and demand a ransom, but It can also infect any other device or peripheral connected to it, including the cloud.  This is the same virus that so thoroughly infected the servers of a local police department in Georgia, that when the cops asked the FBI what to do, the feds told them to pay the ransom.  Before your world gets turned upside down and your computers held hostage, watch this episode of Working the Web to Win where we will show you how to beef up your immunity to the nastiest bug in Cyberspace.
