WannaCry..duh! Do you?

HELLO AND WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. THIS BLOG IS ALL ABOUT MY LIFE EXPERIENCES AND LIFE POLICIES, BUT FROM THIS POST WE ARE INCLUDING SOME INFORMATIVE BLOGS TOO.. YES WE ARE GOING TO KNOW THE CURRENT WORLD NOW ONWARDS.

SO EVERYONE USES INTERNET AND AVAIL ITS SERVICES RIGHT?. SO YOU MAY HAVE HEARD ABOUT RANSOMWARE AND WannaCry, ITS BEEN AFFECTING ALL KINDS OF BUSINESSES AND GOVERNMENT OFFICES. SO WHAT IS IT ACTUALLY.

WannaCry IS MUCH MORE LIKE A VIRUS WHICH SPREAD THROUGH E-MAILS AND PHISHING. DOWNLOADING EXTENSIONS FROM UNSAFE WEBSITES DO INVITE WannaCry TO YOUR PC OR LAPTOP WHICH IS RUNNING WINDOWS UPTO 10. IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 10 OS LIKE MINE THEN YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY.

SO HOW DOES IT WORK?

WannaCry SPREADS THROUGH THE VULNERABILITY IN MICROSOFT WINDOWS SMB SERVER. ONCE IT’S IN YOUR SYSTEM IT STARTS TO SPREAD TO OTHER NODES IN YOUR NETWORK. IT THEN LAUNCHES THE RANSOMWARE AND LOCKS DOWN YOUR ENTIRE SYSTEM. TO REGAIN YOUR LOST DATA YOU SHOULD PAY 300$ THROUGH BITCOIN. (IF THIS HAPPENED TO ME I WOULD SELL MY SYSTEM).

SO HOW CAN WE PREVENT IT?

ITS QUIET SIMPLE TO STOP THE INFECTION FROM HAPPENING AND SPREADING(YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO TO THE DOC FOR THIS). FIRST OF ALL DISABLE YOUR SMBv1 & SMBv2 ON YOUR SYSTEM. AND YOU SHOULD UPGRADE YOUR ANTIVIRUS AND OPERATING SYSTEM. THAT’S IT AND YOU ARE DONE.

YOU WOULD ACTUALLY SIT IN FRONT OF YOUR SYSTEM AND CRY. SO PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND DON’T WEEP, AND I CANT SEE YOU GUYS DO THAT.

SO IF YOU FIND THIS BLOG INFORMATIVE AND HAS HELPED YOU IN ANYWAYS DO SHARE IT WITH ME. AND DO TELL IF I SHOULD BE DOING THESE KINDA BLOGS.

BE YOLO.

BE HAPPY PEEPY.

    1. Hello there! If you are a Windows 8 user you should disable smb, if you are using it for home purposes usally it won’t have smb in it. So no worries there. Do update your antivirus and keep a check on that. I will continue with this type of posts and keep supporting. Cheers!. Have a nice day!
