Mateya Law Firm’s computers have been hacked. We want to make you aware of how this happened so that you can learn and, perhaps, protect yourself. We are in the midst of a computer upgrade. We are still running two older computers on the Windows XP system. The virus, CryptoLocker, attacked the older computers only and it locked us out of our own data. The virus then demands a ransom for the “key” to unlock your data. We are not paying any ransom.
It does not appear that any private information was stolen.
The good news is that our internet protection, Carbonite, will have us back up and running by early next week. Be aware of the dangers of unprotected data.
Thank you for your patience with us.
