Worried about the latest Ransomware attacks?

Here are a few tips that may help:

  • Upgrade to Windows 10 especially if you are still using XP.
  • Ensure you have an up to date anti-malware programme installed.  Programmes such s F-Secure will work in the background to prevent attacks such as this.
  • Back-up your files to an external hard drive. Ensure that this hard drive is disconnected from your PC/laptop when not backing up, as ransomware can move between drives.
  • If you discover you have ransomware, do not plug the external hard drive into the computer until the problem has been resolved.
  • Ensure the Windows updates are installed when they are released.  Your computer should do this automatically.
  • Never click on any links that you don’t recognize.
