Critical Alert: Ransomware attack ‘WannaCry’ hits Australia

A wide spread ransomware campaign, known as WannaCry, has impacted organisations globally over the weekend.

The ransomware is spread by taking advantage of a Windows vulnerability, and seeks to seize control of computers until victims pay a ransom.

To ensure your organisation is protected, it is crucial that all computers and servers have the latest Windows patches and updates installed. If you require assistance, TechPath can perform checks on your behalf.

For TechPath Managed IT customers, we are currently working to ensure patches are either completed or in progress, so no further action from you is required, however if you are worried about any of your personal devices, please talk to us.

As always, we are urging all customers to be vigilant when opening emails and clicking on potentially harmful links.

If you have any concerns about the security of your IT systems, please contact TechPath on 1300 033 300 or email [email protected]
