Don't fall victim to ransomware called Wannacry.
YOU ARE PROTECTED IF:
You are subscribed to The SynchroNet Way and have a Blue Ball icon in your task tray by your PC clock
You have an on-premises or cloud-based server from SynchroNet and are subscribed to The SynchroNet Way because SynchroNet has deployed the necessary patches
What You Need to Know
74 countries are reporting infections
After infection, the ransomware propagates over the network via "external blue", a tool built by the NSA (but leaked and now misused by criminals)
Unpatched Microsoft systems are vulnerable to this ransomware
It's unclear how initial infection occurs (likely drive-by or email)
The number of affected systems will continue to increase significantly, so your risk of infection will continue to rise
What You Can Do
DO NOT open any suspicious emails or attachments
Make sure your personal computers are updated and have the latest Microsoft patches
Ensure that your critical information is safely backed up off network.
