Here’s your NEW YEARS Friendly reminder ransom ware is real and you’re at risk! PLEASE BACKUP YOUR DATA NOW!


Dear friends, clients and family

Yes, this email is real and from Jeremy Benisek at Don’t Panic Business Technologies. This is a critical issue you must have backups or there’s little I can do for you after the fact. Please take a few minutes and watch this video then backup your data online! Plugged in external drives aren’t safe! NAS drives, Servers and any Network connected devices aren’t safe.

Crash Plan Pro has a 30 day trial so you can make sure it works for you. I took the time to write this email because this is IMPORTANT! We’re losing the Cyber War and you’re at risk.

Here’s your NEW YEARS Friendly reminder ransom ware is real and you’re at risk! PLEASE BACKUP YOUR DATA NOW!

Video by – Crypto Locker and options for protection and backup.


Crash Plan Pro – $10/month (Even file servers) Unlimited space, Unlimited Version. The default “check for changes” is every 15 minutes. The Video says $5/month but that’s for a home version of the product vs the business version I suggest for everyone home and work.

Code 42 makes Crash Plan Pro. The goal is to provide a solution to the backup nightmare and here it is. You can even backup to your external hard drives at the same time for the best redundancy.

Cost of Equipment loss:

The minimum cost if your computer’s hard drive crashes is $200, if the drive is physically damaged it can cost $1200 to recover. Please send the $120/year to backup all your data.

Rate of creation of new unknown malware.

The growth of malware appears unstoppable. In total, some 20 million new strains were created worldwide in the third quarter of the year, at a rate of 227,747 new samples every day.

Similarly, the global infection ratio was 37.93%, slightly up on the previous quarter (36.87%).

These are just a few of the figures presented by Luis Corrons, Technical Director of PandaLabs, from the latest quarterly report.

Rates of Real-world detection of known malware.

Here is the information on Antivirus software from a non-profit testing org. The breakdown is Windows Defender built in protection is 84%, you can pay for software that might increase that up to 98% of “known” bugs. But there can be a major performance hit and a lot of false positives.

Thank you,

Call me if you have questions.
