There is a new major ransomware attack that has already hit countries across the pond, 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 also has the ability to lock the entire disk instead of just certain files. It is unclear where the attack began or originated from.

As with any attack of this kind, it is critical to understand how to avoid becoming a victim yourself, and what systems you need to have in place to ensure you can recover from an infection if it does occur.
