WannaCry Cyberattack

Posted by Dakota Central 5/16/2017 2:32:02 PM

Since last Friday, May 11, WannaCry ransomware has hit 150 countries with over 200,000 victims. The attack crawls for open vulnerabilities in Windows OS. Typically, ransomware like most Phishing attacks use a blended approach of email and web as attack vectors. The attack locks users out of their computers, demanding they pay up to $300 or risk losing their files forever.

Steps you can take to help protect yourself:
  • Update your Windows OS right away
  • Be sure you are using current versions of both email and web security systems
  • Archive your emails and files to ensure back up and recovery
  • Do not open any unusual emails, even if the sender is someone you know
