The Cryptolocker malware, also known as Ransom malware, is an especially destructive virus that encrypts all of your data.  For those that don’t know anything about it, it is malicious software that is usually passed around through infected email attachments, such as voicemail messages or faxes.  Once you download and open the infected attachment, it goes through your computer and encrypts ALL of your files.  Once the malware finishes, you will get a message on your computer informing you that your files have been encrypted.  Cyber criminals then force you to pay to get the data back, with no assurance they will actually follow through if you do. 

The Cryptolocker malware has been out for some time now, but emails infected with it seem to have increased lately.  This is just one important reason why you back up your files frequently and make sure if you data does become encrypted, that you do not overwrite your backup.  Since the spammers are constantly changing their messages, make sure you do not open unsolicited emails and download files without confirming their sources.  Keeping your anti-virus programs and anti-malware programs updated are other ways to protect yourself.

First off I would like to say excellent blog!
I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.

I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure
out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!

You are close, but a little off the mark. As [url=""]this guy[/url] had pointed out, there are other variables to consider. Either way, you need to rethink things. Call me at 415-759-5019

I’ve been using RouteNote for 4 months, to distribute a 10 track album and 2 singles. I would not recommend them.Their distribution to the major stores works OK, there is usually a delay to some of the stores. However if you are looking to monetise your tracks on Soundcloud and YouTube (ContentID) forget it.Their YouTube ContentID submission process is a shambles. I had a track refused because they ran it through Shazam and saw a ‘match’ – I had to explain to them that my content is 100 original with no samples or derivatives, and they then agreed to submit it to ContentID. Then they came back and said there is a delay with YouTube, that was a week ago.In the same support email their ContentID guy told me that they didn’t like to submit content that had a hit on Shazam because YouTube threatened at one point to pull their content as RouteNote was generating false copyright claims. No other distributor I’ve spoken to has this issue as they know how to set up their ContentID policies correctly (matching overlap percentages etc) so that this doesn’t happen.The same track has been sitting waiting for them to clear it for SoundCloud monetisation, meanwhile the track is getting hundreds of plays a day and isn’t generating me any revenue.I have a support ticket sitting unanswered for 3 months, I’ve had support questions deleted from their forum, and they do not generate YouTube ‘art videos’ and monetise them like they claim on their site. That information has now been removed from their site and just goes to a ‘page not found’ error.Many times I have emailed their support and received a reply a day or two later asking me to email someone else at a different email address. I have just this morning received two emails from two different people in RouteNote, giving me totally contradictory information.If you want a cheap way to get your stuff onto iTunes and Amazon and a few others, use RouteNote. If you want to get your music monetised for streaming, or you want to use a service with good support and a slick website, don’t – that’s as fair as I can be.

Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with
SEO? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for
some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains.
If you know of any please share. Thank you!
