The biggest cyberattack the world has ever seen is still claiming victims and threatens to create even more havoc on Monday when people return to work.
The Ransomware has been identified as WannaCRY. However we are safe so far. We have followed the recommendations of Microsoft and MacAfee.

What is ransomware?

A type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid.

What does ransomware do?
There are different types of ransomware. However, all of them will prevent you from using your PC normally, and they will all ask you to do something before you can use your PC.

They can target any PC users, whether it’s a home computer, endpoints in an enterprise network, or servers.

Ransomware can:

· Prevent you from accessing Windows.

· Encrypt files so you can't use them.

· Stop certain apps from running (like web browser).

How does malware infect your PC

1. Spam emails :Malware authors often use tricks to try to convince you to download malicious files. This can be an email with a file attached that tells you it is a receipt for a delivery, a tax refund, or an invoice for a ticket. It might say you have to open the attachment to get the items delivered to you, or to get money.

2. Infected removable drives :Many worms spread by infecting removable drives such as USB flash drives or external hard drives. The malware can be automatically installed when you connect the infected drive to your PC.

3. Bundled with other software: Some malware can be installed at the same time as other programs that you download. This includes software from third-party websites or files shared through peer-to-peer networks

4. Hacked or compromised webpages : Malware can use known software vulnerabilities to infect your PC. A vulnerability is like a hole in your software that can give malware access to your PC

How do I protect myself against ransomware?

1. Install and use an up-to-date antivirus solution.
2. Make sure your software is up-to-date.
3. Avoid clicking on links or opening attachments or emails from people you don't know or companies you don't do business with.
4. Ensure you have smart screen (in Internet Explorer) turned on.
5. Have a pop-up blocker running in your web browser.
6. Regularly backup your important files.
