HOMELAND SECURITY WARNING – PLEASE SHARE!:
Please be on the alert; Homeland Security just released the following report regarding Petya Ransomware Infections.
“US-CERT has received multiple reports of Petya ransomware infections occurring in networks in many countries around the world
Petya ransomware encrypts the master boot records of infected Windows computers, making affected machines unusable. Open-source reports indicate that the ransomware exploits vulnerabilities in Server Message Block (SMB). US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review the US-CERT article on the Microsoft SMBv1 Vulnerability and the Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010.
