Hello everybody, Please your help since couldn't find comprehensive answer!!
My computer too was infected with the miserable Crytpowall 3.0 (Let us all hope that there is a hell after all).
Before I knew that I was infected with that, I plugged my external hard drive once to make a backup. Some computer files weren't backed up at time and are lost (let's say 5%) but I can live with that, but if the Trojan passed to my external hard drive it will be a disaster. So:
Is it possible/likely that my external hard drive became infected?
If so, how can I halt its progress (in my computer the infection was gradual - folder by folder) or what steps should I take?
Please, i am not really computer savvy and English is not my mother tongue so be gentle with your answer :-) I would be forever grateful and may return the favor
Thanks from the bottom in advance!!!
