Father/Grandfather backups give more protection against this malware than any virus checker can hope. And is pretty useful when baby pours milk all over your motherboard and bounces the drive on the err driveway - probably a more likely demise for your truly beloved data.

At the cost of a few downvotes - I dare to say that so many Windows users think safety is and only is paying out to Norton & co. Few have any backup strategy that will survive this type of attack. Yet it isn't difficult.
