You’ve probably heard about it already from the news. A malicious software called “WannaCry” actually made a lot of people worldwide want to cry. The ransomware locks people’s files and demands some money if the victims want to get them back. Sounds scary, huh?
Well, you don’t have to keep shutting your computer down. Actually, you can prevent its attack. All you have to do are just some simple tasks:
- First, you must make sure that you’ve downloaded and installed security patch from Windows. The malware only exploited computers that hadn’t been patched yet.
- Second, make sure your antivirus is up to date.
- Third, beware of any files you actually downloaded from the internet and don’t open any links from unknown email addresses.
- Last, backup, backup, and backup. People often forget that doing a backup routine is a must and suffer the consequences at times like this.
Easy, right? It’s time to stop the ignorance and protect your computer, now!
