Dangerous ransomware spreading in more than 90 countries in the world

Security Level: Critical

WannaCry ransomware in just a few hours targeted more than 100,000 computers in the world. Ransomware infected the machine by encrypting all its files and, using a remote command execution vulnerability through SMB, is distributed to other Windows machines on the same network.

To safeguard against such ransomware infection, you should only open files  received from the Internet in Safe Run mode. Make sure that you run an active anti-virus security suite of tools on your system.
