CryptoLocker Ransomware

In order to help the community at large I would like to ensure you have heard of the Ransomware CryptoLocker.  This software encrypts files on your computer and then holds them for ransom.  There is currently no known way to remove the encryption.  The software will encrypt everything it can find on connected drives, etc.  

US-Cert and others have more information on protecting your self from this bad software:
