Not help but a warning

Post by DarkDeamon » Sat May 13, 2017 5:28 am

You've all probably seen the massive ransomware attack in the news. Over 57,000 machines infected in under 12hrs worldwide.

It's being delivered by email attachment using one of the NSA hacking tools released by the ShadowBrokers recently. Be bloody careful as to what you open. Check the header of your emails to see that it actually is from who it says it is in the from box (will post some info on how to do that shortly).

Finally, the infection in the attachment is a worm. If you do get the ransomware message on your screen and you have PC's or mobile devices connected to the same network, disconnect the infected system from your network immediately otherwise there is a very good chance it will spread.

Keep your Antivirus up to date and watch what you click on!
