Learning about Internet threats with WIVB

This WIVB story, reported by Jordan Williams, started with a local man that was victim to a cyber attack that appeared to take control of his personal laptop.   A FBI Buffalo representative and DIGITS LLC’s Director of Computer Forensics and Investigations both provided feedback from the “ransomware” attack.  It is very important to make sure that you are aware of these type of cyber attacks.  Both representatives reinforced that it is important to call to shut down your computer right away and call a security expert, like DIGITS LLC, if you fall victim from a computer virus similar to described here.
