Beat Cryptolocker, the virus that kidnaps your documents
Cryptolocker is one of the most dangerous viruses of recent years. When it infects your PC, it “kidnaps” documents and requests money for their retrieval. But what happens if you don’t pay?
In Softonic we scan all the files hosted on our platform to assess and avoid any potential harm for your device. Our team performs checks each time a new file is uploaded and periodically reviews files to confirm or update their status. This comprehensive process allows us to set a status for any downloadable file as follows:
It’s extremely likely that this software program is clean.
We have scanned the file and URLs associated with this software program in more than 50 of the world's leading antivirus services; no possible threat has been detected.
This software program is potentially malicious or may contain unwanted bundled software.
Based on our scan system, we have determined that these flags are possibly false positives.
It means a benign program is wrongfully flagged as malicious due to an overly broad detection signature or algorithm used in an antivirus program.
It’s highly probable this software program is malicious or contains unwanted bundled software.
Based on our scan system, we have determined that these flags are likely to be real positives.
