This is my first posting on Bleeping Computer.com Your thoughts will be greatly appreciated
 
A computer in our office was hit with the CryptoWall Virus. 
I found Bleeping Computer's webpage http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/cryptowall-ransomware-information#CryptoWall
very helpful for learning more about this virus. 
Is anyone aware if CryptoWall is making use of personal data that it encrypts?

:welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

CryptoWall 2.0 uses its own TOR gateways...see Updated CryptoWall 2.0 ransomware released that makes it harder to recover files.

There is a lengthy ongoing discussion in this topic: CryptoWall - new variant of CryptoDefense.

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
