WannaCry

WannaCry is the name of a new ransomware that is utilizing a Windows vulnerability to spread. It encrypt files, and promises to decrypt the files for a fee (which should not be paid).

Microsoft released a patch for the vulnerability in March.
Basefarm has always had the mentality that the best way to advance is through systematic, tedious and hard work, and this is one of the reasons we have implemented automatic patching, denying network traffic as a default, isolating networks from each other to have working restores of files for those who purchase that service.

Basefarm is currently tracking the situation and are staying alert for any changes to the information security arena.
