There is a ransomware attack that is ripping through the UK and Europe and is expect to continue spreading. This virus will encrypt all your files and demand money before allowing you to access them again. It primarily targets business, but will happily infect you too if it gets a chance.
The ransomware is leveraging a flaw in Microsoft Windows that was fixed in March this year. If your system and antivirus are up to date you should be safe, If you have not applied Windows updates for a while you must do that now.
The fix was issued for Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. It also fixed Windows server 2008 and 2012.
The Microsoft Security Response Team have taken the extraordinary step of also releasing a patch for unsupported Windows XP, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2003.
If you are running those older versions please contact me for instructions on how to receive the update.
