Ransomware Outbreak

ISC has informed us that there is a ransomware outbreak spreading across Europe and elsewhere, targeting Windows systems via SMB & RDP protocols.

May 12, 2017

The Information Security Office is monitoring a massive ransomware outbreak, “WannaCry,” that appears to have infected many organizations around the world. The WannaCry ransomware spreads rapidly on an organization’s network targeting unpatched Microsoft operating systems. Once infected, files on a Windows computer are encrypted and a ransomware pop-up window appears demanding the user pay approximately $300 in Bitcoin to unlock (decrypt) the files.

What should you do if you have been infected?

  • If your machine is infected, unplug the network cable, do not turn off the machine 
  • Immediately patch your Windows operating system by running the latest Microsoft updates
  • Back up the files stored on your computer to an external hard drive
