Massive ransomware attack infected computers in India with nearly 100 countries. The ransomware is spread by taking advantage of a Windows vulnerability that Microsoft released a security patch for in March. But computers and networks that hadn’t updated their systems were still at risk.
Way To Stay Safe From WannaCry Ransomware Attack:-
You can Patch your systems now for safe your computer from this ransomware attack.
The Wana Decrypt0r ransomware used a self-spreading mechanism derived from an NSA exploit leaked by the Shadow Brokers. That exploit can be mitigated by installing the patches included with Microsoft security bulletin MS17-010.
Additionally, Microsoft has released an update for older operating systems that are no longer officially supported, such as Windows XP, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2003. The update can be downloaded from upper link.
People already infected with this ransomware will not get their files back just because that domain was registered. It means that no new infections will occur with yesterday’s strain. Currently, there’s no known method of breaking the ransomware’s encryption.
The only viable method of getting files back at the moment is from previous operating system backups, and by paying the ransom note, as a last resort. Hope this article was helpful.
