Massive Ransomware Attack: How to Avoid Being Hacked

posted by @JeffHurley -

A new variant of ransomware known as Petwrap (or Petya) is being spread through phishing emails that contain a Dropbox link to a fake resume. If you click on the link, it executes a file that crashes and reboots your computer.  Your computer will display an image with a skull and crossbones and a message that the hard drive has been encrypted and the only way to retrieve your data is to pay a ransom.

HOW TO AVOID BEING HACKED:

1). Do not click on any links embedded in emails.

2). Do not open unexpected email attachments.

New ransomware attack called Petya, or NotPetya, is much worse than WannaCry and have already swept across Europe and the rest of the world. 😱😱
