On Friday 12 of May, the virus Wannacry began to spread throughout the world, and from what is written online, we estimate that significantly more than 200,000 computers have been infected so far.
The virus attacks the computer through a security hole in Windows, that enters the network via so-called. Phishing email. What happens then is that the virus infects affected computers with a hostage program, “Ransomware”, which locks the files on the computer and requires the user on a Ransomware.
The above actions provide good basic prerequisites for protection, but provide no 100% guarantee. An important parameter is also that users are alert to mail, and what to click. And if the damage is happening then there must be backups to read if we at Atrox should have the opportunity to help repair the damage.
