Hi martin,

Just listen to geekster 97 and your encounter with crptolocker,

Just a coupler of questions. I am guessing to getting effected it does not taker advantage of a secuirty hole in windows,it is just that the user has the rights to run executables, if the vicitim launches the excutables it runs and encrypt the files the user has rights to it?

Also I am bit confused on how the backup exec back2disk files got encrypt, I can see how files on a network share got encrypted if they where network drive mapped to the effected computer, but where were the backup2disc file stored?

Keep up the good work and merry Christmas
