You may have heard over the weekend of the recent attacks of ransomware called WannaCry, which has targeted almost 200,000 computers across 150 countries. While a killswitch has been found to help lessen the spread of WannaCry, many still believe that a new strain of WannaCry will soon come out which will bypass this quick fix.
Microsoft has released its statement on this issue while also providing its customers the solution to prevent the malicious software from affecting you, installing the security update MS17-010 and more recently they released security patches for older operating systems such as XP which can be found on this link. However, for those of our current Trend Micro users who cannot update their patches as soon as possible we have work arounds in which you can do in the meantime. Below are the products of Trend Micro that can be used to prevent the attacks (please make sure to follow the correct patch or pattern for the product):
For our clients who are not using Trend Micro, we strongly urge you to patch your Windows with MS17-010 (for versions such as XP please refer to this link). For any questions or inquiries you have with regards to ransomware or how you can protect you system, please contact us at 893 9515 and we will be happy to help!
