According to a CTV News report, a new e-mail scam is taking your data hostage.  It can look innocent enough, coming from people you know.  With a subject line of “could you look at my resume” or “your invoice is ready”.  DON’T DOWNLOAD THEM.  If you do, hackers have access to all your personal files and encrypt them.  Locking you out.  Then they ask for money in exchange for your stuff.  So beware.  Click the link (trust me, it’s a geniune link – I wouldn’t do that to you (smile) )
