I get emails with subjects with no letters in the email, and a .pdf (might be a pdf) The ones I found are.. jhhbhodge@truvista.ne, subject of Email with MG$.pdf and all of them say to info.

Then I found a kmceldu@tulane.ed with a x.docx and a subject of Google account

Then I got one called mail from a guy named @Gm ! with the email of c53ftr@embarqmail.com, and wi%&.pdf

Is this CryptoLocker or something else?

A repository of all current knowledge regarding Cryptolocker is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this tutorial: CryptoLocker Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

There is also a lengthy ongoing discussion in this topic: Cryptolocker Hijack Program. Since this infection is so widespread, rather than have everyone start individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any questions, comments or requests for assistance in that topic discussion.

Thanks
