How to rescue your PC from ransomware

With the nasty CryptoLocker malware making the rounds--encrypting its victims' files, and then refusing to provide the unlock key unless a payment of $300 is made via Bitcoin or a prepaid cash voucher--ransomware is back in the spotlight.

New Kaspersky products pack better whitelisting and ransomware rescue features

Kaspersky Lab has launched its 2014 versions of Kaspersky Anti-Virus ($US59.95) and Kaspersky Internet Security ($US79.95). Pricing varies upon the length of protection and how many PCs you want to protect; those listed here include one year for up to three PCs. If you're a current customer you may upgrade from the 2013 products free of charge.
