Locky Email Virus Spreading Like Wildfire

Stop Threats Before They Hit the Network

As some of you may know there is a devastating email virus spreading like wildfire. The Malware is called “Locky”. It is disguising itself as an email attachment and has been using various file types (Word Doc, Excel, ZIP, PDF and etc.). Once you open the attachment Locky Malware can encrypt 164 different file types. Locky encrypts files on all fixed drives, removable drives and also on RAM disk drives. The hackers are after your money, they are trying to get users to pay them to remove the virus, do not follow payment instructions or give your personal information!!!

How to reduce risk of being infected:

  • Use an advanced email firewall service such as Barracuda
  • As always, don’t open suspicious attachments (e.g. .doc, .xls, and .zip files)
  • Keep recent backup copies of important data in a secure place either online or offline
  • Ensure that your system and applications are fully updated and patched
  • Disable Microsoft Office macros by default and never enable macros in strange/unknown attachments that you receive via email

We have been seeing a large increase of the message types on our Barracuda Anti-Spam filter over the last 72 hours. Our Barracuda Anti-Spam filter is currently catching the emails and attachments for all of our Anti-Spam customers, but everyone is still at risk until the threat is fully detectable. For those who are unaware the Barracuda Email Security Gateway is integrated with a cloud-based service that pre-filters email before delivery to the onsite Barracuda Email Security Gateway. The Cloud Protection Layer is continuously updated with definitions in real time from Barracuda Central. In addition, Barracuda’s global cloud infrastructure provides the flexibility to handle email surges during specific periods of the day and during Denial of Service attacks. For our clients who do not use Barracuda or other spam firewall please contact us with any questions or concerns.
