Another Massive Cyberattack hits

June 27, 2017 - 1:10pm

Reports are coming in of a massive cyberattack happening throughout the Ukraine and other countries. Recent reports indicate that it has spread to England and may well be ready to wander across the ocean to the US.  This is reportedly a new ransomware attack, and appears to be a variant of the previously-known Petya ransomware. Take care.

People with up-to-date Windows updates should be fine on home systems, but there are some indications that the virus can spread through company-managed systems using Windows System Administration tools, so company-based computers may be more vulnerable.
