We at Shortcircuited saw our first ransomware attack 4.5 years ago. In 2013 ransomware attacks were new and not prevalent and most companies had no clue on how to deal with infections. Once attacked there are basically two options. Restore from a backup or pay the ransom. Because of these limited options we at Shortcircuited are more focused on hack prevention as opposed to the data recovery aspect. Protect your valuable data against the recent wannacry worm.
Call us at 347-791-3311 if your office was infected with ransomware. A technician will respond to your inquiries as soon as possible.
We are bringing this urgent alert of a very serious threat to your practice's sensitive patient data.
Our office has been inundated with many calls of a malware called cryptolocker
What this malicious program does is, it encrypts all of the files on your computer and displays a ransom notice that if $500 worth of Bitcoin is not sent to a specified address within 3 days all of your files will be lost.

Once our technicians have consulted with you, we will perform a thorough evaluation of your company's computer infrastructure. Extensive diagnostics will be run to find out how we can improve upon your current systems. We will also investigate what software application will be best to serve your business needs.
