    is there such thing as cyber phobia? i have invested a few days worth of work on a windows virtual server next day i log in i found out there is a virus "cryptowall 3.0" has infected all my files as in encrypting them and a text file telling me that if i value my file worth i should pay 500$ in bitcoin to get a private key to dcrypt my files, i googled this and found there is no fix to this issue but to actually pay which im not doing, but i have no idea how i got that virus in the first place, i haven't downloaded any fishy stuff, and all the sites i log to are trustworthy i even have antivirus and firewall installed, thank god my main machine hasn't been infected, im backing up all my stuff to flashdrives but in constant worry
