News: Ransom Virus Hits iPhones & iPads

Apple devices are being targeted by a Ransomware virus.

The “Olig Pliss” virus locks devices and demands that the owner pays a ransom to have their devices unlocked.

This all sounds very familiar. Recently the “Cryptolocker” ransomware trojan virus infected Windows computers demanding bit-coin payments to have files decrypted.

The advice here is easy – back up regularly. Therefore if your computer or iPad get infected with these virus’s, just reset them to factory settings and the most you will lose is perhaps a few weeks worth of files.
