CryptoLocker is most often spread through booby-trapped email attachments and uses military grade encryption. The malware can also be deployed by hacked and malicious web sites by exploiting outdated browser plugins.
Not only will Webroot be able to stop CryptoLocker before it infects your machine, but if a new variant manages to get through, our technology will be able to roll back the damage done using advanced journaling. We are the ONLY company that can offer this kind of help. We will not be able to decrypt files hijacked by CryptoLocker on a system that was infected before Webroot was on the machine and the remediation will not be possible on a network drive that does not have Webroot SecureAnywhere installed on it.
"WSA currently doesn't reverse the changes on a network drive because of the risk with data loss if another user changed a file. The best scenario would be to install WSA everywhere, including the system hosting the network drive if possible. Even if gigabytes of data are encrypted, WSA will continue happily journaling it." - Joe Jaroch, Webroot VP of Engineering
