Apparently a new ransomware attack is spreading across Europe today, similar to the Wannacry attack last month. The situation is still developing but we are monitoring and relay any information we can as the details become more clear. Right now according to The Verge website, banks, telecom, airports, point of sale terminals and ATM systems have been brought down. It is a form of the Petrwrap virus (Petya ransomware). It is unclear still how it is spreading. As soon as we are aware of any protective measures that you may need to take we will be posting them here and in other places. Be wary of email communications and clicking on links you do not trust as always. Its likely that this infection is using one or the other. Only 4 out of 61 antivirus services have been able to detect this virus as of this morning. More to come...
