We are starting to see customers who are been hit by cryptolocker type ransomware virus’s. These becoming very difficult yo protect against. Customer using Storage Devices susch NAS unit for Backups will need to review there policies for backup process’s. Customer who are infected by these type of Virus’s are finding there Backups are also encrypted as theya re Mapped Drives to the PC or Server that recieved the Virus. Currently we are recommending not mapping Drives for NAS backup units as this will stop the virus from infecting the units. We also recommend using backup tape storage systems. So far tape drives are not infected by these type of Virus’s so we can restore from these backups and remove the virus.
Windows Updates – keep up to to Date!
Please make sure you keep your PC systems up to date each month. Windows updates should run automatically on windows 7/8/10 and they should be allowed to install. This helps stop vulnerabilities and reduces the risk of virus infection as well.
Anti Virus Software
Customers are recommended to update virus engine/Definitions daily to keep there systems as secure as possible.
