What is funny is where I work...we can not update our systems to protect against it...my last update was Oct 2016. But so far I am not seeing any issues.

With Love, Honor & Respect for all of you...no matter how I argue or disagree my heart is full of love for you all...

Malware bytes helps.

.

I hate been hit twice by my computer shutting down and starts speaking with a ransomware screen. i find unplugging it, stops it.

.

Wait a minute, turn it on and it is gone. Run Malware bytes and McAfee and its gone. Still scares the shit out of me.

Considering nearly all spam emails come from there, the home of fake vigara, some emails I had about Femela pack of Vigara every day for a year and Russian sex date.com ads, Annastasia loves you shit and one about Conferencskys.

.

Russia and Nigeria should have all traffic blocked as a punishment. I have a feeling a guy called Obafemi Scamnikov is running it all.

...OK, as a bit of a "nerdy" type - everybody who's scared of this type of thing should shift to Linux. It's an OS, replacement for Windoze, which might prevent this type of thing. Google it. It's not perfect, but it's Better. And free, price wise. GOOGLE IT!! smile
