"My recommendation would be to not pay at all, as you would quite simply be funding criminal behaviour," Mark James, security specialist at security firm ESET told IBTimesUK. "Making sure your applications, operating system and security software is up to date and making sure you backup regularly is the best defence against this type of behaviour. Backup options these days are so cheap it really is a no brainer, do not pay."

Fraser Howard of SophosLabs: "If you’ve been reading Naked Security lately, you’ll know that CryptoWall 4.0 is latest version of this ransomware family. Version 4 is very similar to earlier versions, inasmuch as it scrambles all your files using a cryptographic key that is known only to the crooks, whereupon the malware offers to sell you the key for a few hundred dollars. If you don’t have a decent backup, and you want to recover your data, you don’t have much choice but to pay up."

"Never before in the history of humankind have people across the world been subjected to extortion on a massive scale as they are today," stated The Evolution of Ransomware, a 2015 report from Mountain View, California-based cybersecurity firm Symantec.
