Protecting our Customers
The latest ransomware Petya/Petrwrap has been spreading at a global scale. This virus exploits a vulnerability that was patched by Microsoft in March (MS17-010).
For our customers who we manage AV, we made sure that 100% were patched at that time of the patch release. New devices that have come online since have also been reviewed and checked.
A 'vaccine' has also been reported.
