Warning! Another New Global Ransomware Attack is just getting started

A new strain of the Petya Ransomware virus called GoldenEye is spreading around the world fast, affecting many businesses since it was first discovered this week. This follows on from the recent WannaCry virus, however is expected to be more wide spread. If affected, this virus will lock your organisation out of all files, and we will have to revert to your backups which may cause some disruption.
Even though you have security around your environment, if anyone on your network is tricked into downloading the malware through emails or a loaded document, this may potentially infect your network.

Dark Horse is continuing to monitor our customers’ backups, patch systems and warn users about older operating systems that may be susceptible to this attack.

As always, please ensure all staff in network are vigilant against any suspicious emails you may receive.
