Ok, just seen another user with a CTB encryption on his pc. No backup, all data gone .
Now i am wondering... as an administrator, i am making backups on a regular base. But: the backups are on my own machine, on a second hard drive. That means, that an infection with a program like CTB locker will (most probably) encrypt all of my backup copies as well. An offline backup (backup on a disk, not connected to my computer) would be perfect for this, but then i would have to connect this disk every time i need to make a backup.
This brings me to my main question: does anyone know of a method to make a "protected" backup? What i mean by that: does anyone know of a method to secure a backup in such a way that a virus or anything alike is unable to access / delete / modify it?
Thanks for your input!
