Protecting Your Computer From Global Ransomeware Attacks

A few weeks ago cyber criminals released a global cyber attack on governmental agencies. The WannaCry Ransomeware attack has been describes as the “biggest cyber attack in history” with over 150 countries being affected.

The virus was a new variant of the existing WannaCry malware and affected Window devices.
