Protect yourself from WannaCry ransomware

On Friday, a massive ransomware attack targeted tens of thousands of computers across the world.  And it’s spreading…fast.

Wanna Decrypt0r (aka WCry, WannaCry, and WannaCryptor) ransomware encrypts files and databases — without any user intervention. Like other nasty ransomware, WannaCry also blocks access to a computer or its files and demands money to unlock it.

If your computer gets infected you have only two choices – pay the ransom or restore clean versions of your files and applications from a recent, clean backup.  

If you haven’t yet taken the following 3 steps, do so NOW:

  1. Install Microsoft’s critical updates — MS17-010 and Update Catalog.
  2. Update your AntiVirus/AntiSpyware signatures.
  3. Protect your devices with with a cloud backup solution that includes AV/AS detection.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about WannaCry or other Ransomware risks, we’re here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
