New Petya Malware Causing problems today, June 27th, 2017!

I just received and email from Malware Bytes one of my best technical tools to find and destroy viruses. As of this morning, tens of thousands of computers have been hit.

“A new strain of ransomware, a Petya-esque variant being called Petya/NotPetya, is  spreading across the globe today, impacting tens of thousands of computers. More powerful, professional, and dangerous than last month’s WanaCrypt0r attack, the Petya-esque ransomware uses the same EternalBlue exploit to target vulnerabilities in Microsoft’s operating system. However, unlike WanaCrypt0r, this ransomware instructs you to reboot your computer and then locks up your entire system. Long story short: if you get this infection, you’re hosed.” – Malwarebytes.org

Update your Microsoft Windows software immediately.

Microsoft released a patch for this vulnerability in March. A patch is accessible here. We Don’t open suspicious emails folks! Office documents may be the cause of a lot of this via spam.

 

Stay Safe out There!
