Ransomware attack uses NSA 0-Day exploits to go on worldwide rampage

You may have seen the news this weekend. Criminal hackers have released a new strain of ransomware that spreads itself automatically across all workstations in a network, causing a global epidemic. If you or a co-worker are not paying attention and accidentally open one of these phishing email attachments, you might infect not only your own workstation, but immediately everyone else’s computer too.

Be very careful when you get an email with an attachment you did not ask for. If there is a .zip file in the attachment, do not click on it but delete the whole email. Remember: “When in doubt, throw it out!”

Optional if you use Lorica’s Phish Alert button: When you see a suspicious email, click on the Phish Alert Button, which forwards this email to the IT team and safely deletes it at the same time.

Lorica can also provide on-line security training, assessment and testing for your staff..
