Petya: Network Safety Alert

The latest massive ransomware attack, Petya, is quickly spreading to the United States. Similar to WannaCry, Petya capitalizes on the same Windows vulnerabilities, but Petya has developed an even more devastating result. If infected, Petya moves quickly to encrypt your computer boot files and shuts down your entire system leaving you with little to no hope of recovering your data.

Our Technology Solutions Group has provided some tips and tricks to avoid being infected by Petya:
  1. Check to be sure that your Microsoft Windows is up to date. Immediately install updates to help protect yourself against this malware.
  2. Carefully screen all emails from vendors. If something doesn’t look right, do not open it!
  3. Be sure you are backing up your data regularly. Having a reliable, accurate backup of your files is the only way to guarantee your data will be recovered after an attack.
If you are concerned about your network safety or need help preparing yourself against Petya, please contact our Technology Solutions Group ASAP!
