HolistiCyber Offers Protection Against WannaCry Ransomware

In May 2017 what is believed to be the biggest ransomware campaign yet hit hundreds of companies around the globe. Identified as a variation of WannaCry ransomware, it blocks access to the victim’s computer system and files and demands a payment of as much as US$300 per computer to unblock it. Once a single computer is infected with the ransomware, it searches for other vulnerable computers in the network and infects everything in its path. Because of vulnerabilities in Microsoft products after a Windows exploit was recently hacked from the NSA, the dangerous campaign is spreading at an astounding pace. In only a few hours more than 45,000 computers in at least 74 countries were infected.

Cyber Attacks Could Bring the World to Its Knees

This particular attack affected 16 UK hospitals to such an extent that they had to shut down work. In Spain over 85% of the country’s main telecommunications firm Telefonica was infected. These hackers are turning out to be a powerful global threat. With cyber attacks not only increasing in frequency but also in severity, it is becoming clear that significant investments in cyber defence technologies should be made. End-to-end holistic cyber security solutions have to be implemented to ensure safety from this massive threat.
