Did You Know You Could Pay To Use Your Own Computer. Beware of RansomWare Malware(WannaCry)

This is an important and must read article  for all people, this is to bring to our attention that a massive RansomWare attack (largest in history) hit over 200,000 computers across the world (India hit massively as well). This malware has been out for quite sometime now, I've once written an article on malware and I suggest you read here.


Many of us laptop users don't know when our laptops has been hit by ransonware. This is how we get to know if our laptops has been hit by ransomware.
All the files, data, documents etc will be locked (encrypted) and will not be accessible unless the owner pays a RANSOM (Money). The Ransom can be of 100 to even 1000s of Dollars. So eventually companies (or you, if you are hit) have to pay money to get access to all your PC files.


The effect of this Ransomware has been great to the extent that Hospitals in USA could not operate properly due to this attack. 1000s of patients are not being treated and patient data has been locked. Now the attack is widespread. So you see the need why a protective measure is very necessary.


Excluding the Hospitals, some other companies that got hit by
ransomware are FedEx, Germany Railways, Telephonic, Renault,Russian Central Bank among others.
