Cryptolocker hits the NHS
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last 72 hours you will know that the NHS has taken a hit by Cryptolocker.
This is causing mayhem and panic throughout the NHS and general public.
Over the past few months we have written many posts about ransomware because we are keen to ensure that businesses of all sizes understand the dangers of these types of attacks.
They are advanced and superior to standard Viruses and therefore need dealing with in a different way using different protective measures.
Protecting your business is simple if you follow basic security steps which should be priority number one.
Unfortunately it sometimes takes a high profile case like the NHS being attacked before people pay attention, no business is “Out of bounds” in the attackers eyes.
Attackers using Cryptolocker don’t care which business they attack, EVERY business is a target!
The truth is these attacks happen frequently every day around the world. You are only hearing about it because of the nature of business under threat.
As a support company we deal with many more attacks than we care to mention, scare tactics are not our game!
