Beware of Ransomware WannaCry Attacks - See Decrypt Code

This is to bring to our attention that a massive RansomWare attack (largest in history) hit over 200,000 computers across the world (India hit massively as well). This malware has been out for quite sometime now, and I've long made a post regarding Ransom Malware which you can read here.

To those who don't know, when a PC is hit by a Ransomware attack, all the files, data, documents etc is locked (encrypted) and cannot be accessed unless the owner pays a RANSOM (Money). The Ransom can be of 100 to even 1000s of Dollars. So eventually companies (or you, if you are hit) have to pay money to get access to all your PC files.

Coming back to the news, This attack mainly hit the hospitals in the UK which led hospitals to not operate properly. 1000s of patients are not being treated and patient data has been locked. Now the attack is widespread.

Some big organizations that got hit are Renault, Telephonica, Germany railways, FedEx, Russian Central Bank etc. Ha'cked Servers Google Dork: intitle:“Index of" "/ .WNCRY”

This Ransomware is named as WannaCrpyt (WannaCry) and can hit your computer or laptop too.

Try this Decrypt code if you were affected: WNcry@2ol7
