Biggest ransomware attack ever seen.Everything you should need to know about wannacry ransomware attack.

I think in the modern days "data is life" It hurts😔 when someone stolen your own data and ask money for that.
Now I am going to give you all the information about wannacry ransomware that what exactly it do?how can you protect yourself?what can you do if the computer is infected?so that you can protect your precious data of yours and your loved ones.

Now come to the point what is ransomware? and why it is so called wannacry? So this is a malware, a type of trojon virus created to block access to computer system until a sum of money is paid.This ransomware is called as wannacry because it is created by a hackers group known as wannacry.

In this wannacry ransomware they demand the victims to pay 300 dollars in Bitcoins. If the victim doesn't pay till 3 days the amount doubles to 600 dollars and ultimately after 7 days without any payment they deleted all the files and data😤.Now coming to a interesting question why they ask money in Bitcoins so as you know this is a digital currency popular among cyber criminals because it has no central authority, no rules and regulations and practically impossible to trace.

Remember that paying ransom doesn't guarantee that it will remove ransomware from your computer. Fulfillng the demand of hackers only give them funds to create and spread more and more ransomware program.


This is the biggest ransomware attack that we have ever seen occurs on Friday in may 12th.It infected 230,000 computers in 150 countries. European countries were hit the hardest. Government agencies like UK's national health service and telecom providers like Spains telefonica were infected. In India wannacry attack computers including computers of government agencies like Andhra Pradesh police department.


IS THE ATTACK OVER?:-- NO Unfortunately the spread doesn't actually stopped but instead slowed.On Saturday a security researcher named Marcus Hutchins slowed the spread of this virus by registering the domain name hidden within the virus code.


✓THINGS YOU SHOULD DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THIS RANSOMWARE👍

8) An antivirus would work but it's not the best option. wannacry uses so called ETERNALBLUE vulnerability inside windows code. The best way to protect yourself is to install the latest update that fixes the ETERNALBLUE vulnerability or using anti-malware program especially made to protect against sophisticated malwares like ransomware in mind.

9) Don't use filetypes that are targeted and encrypted by wannacry especially .exe file.

10) If your computer is hijacked or attacked immediately shut down the system and seek the help of computer professionals or IP experts. Don't give in.
