There is a new major ransomware attack that has already hit countries across the ocean including England, Ukraine, India, Spain, Denmark and the Netherlands. It has already affected Maersk, the shipping giant, hydro companies, banks, media outlets and other service industries. The attack functions like the WannaCry attacks, however, it has the ability to lock the entire disk instead of just certain files. It is unclear where the attack began.
As with any attack of this kind, it is critical to understand how to avoid becoming a victim and what systems you need to have in place to ensure you can recover from an infection.
