CryptoLocker is a ransomware program that was released around the beginning of September 2013. This ransomware will encrypt certain files using a mixture of RSA & AES encryption. When it has finished encrypting your files, it will display a CryptoLocker payment program that prompts you to send a ransom of either $100 or $300 in order to decrypt the files. This screen will also display a timer stating that you have 96 hours, or 4 days, to pay the ransom or it will delete your encryption key and you will not have any way to decrypt your files. This ransom must be paid using MoneyPak vouchers or Bitcoins. Once you send the payment and it is verified, the program will decrypt the files that it encrypted. Read more...

Accessing your email on your Kindle
If you are having trouble accessing your email from a Kindle device, Bill Reed has this suggestion... At the very end of the setup process, it asks if you want to require sign-in and it asks for a password. I tried all the usual procedures, but it still didn't like me. So, I tried deleting the sign in requirement and password -- It now works perfectly!
