Global ransomware attack

AP17132543156534.jpg

Kia Ora.

Over 200,000 victims including individuals, organisations and businesses in 150 countries have opened a dodgy email unleashing a virus that locks up your files until you pay a ransome of $300US. Some UK hospitals, an Italian Telco and FedEx US were effected by the attack.

Australians are a bit smarter than the rest of the world with only one confirmed small business hit by the ransomware.

Just a friendly reminder Planet Earth, don't open attachments without checking the source of the email and remember to do regular back ups of your precious docs, pics and vids.
