"Cryptolocker Ransom-Ware' computer virus confirmed in Escambia County

ESCAMBIA COUNTY   --  The Pensacola Police Department has a warning for you about a computer virus.

The "Cryptolocker Ransom-Ware" has been confirmed in Escambia County.
A business was hit by the virus after an employee opened what she thought was a legitimate file.

Officers say this virus is extremely destructive because it securely encrypts all of the computer user's personal files.

It then prompts you to buy the "key" to "decrypt" the files.
 They say the best way to protect yourself is to not open attachments from suspicious email addresses.
