Beware Of A New Security Risk

In the past few days, there has been serious coverage of a cyber attack by a piece of *Ransomware, called WannaCryptor but also going by Wanna Cry and Wcrypt, that is exploiting a problem with some Microsoft Windows operating systems that have not updated their operating systems. It has shut down Hospitals, Auto Factories and impacted many personal and business machines.

While a security update from Microsoft is something that takes time and none of us enjoys, we urge everyone to update their Windows Operating System, regardless of versions. Not much is certain on this attack, except that it is being called "the world's biggest cyber attack", and is spreading.

Here is a link to Microsoft's blog.

If we can be of assistance, please let us know.
