We had a few users recently get infected with Cryptolocker. We sent out a college-wide email from our help desk
reminding users not to open unknown attachments, be cautious of following links, etc.
We also implemented a GPO to prevent EXE's from running from %APPDATA%. We haven't had any reported infections since
taking these two measures.
