On Friday 12th of May the NHS and other organisations across the UK and Europe were hit by a massive virus attack that caused wide spread disruption to their computer systems. The virus was a type of ransomware that encrypted files and demanded payment before the files were released. This virus most likely spread through an email which had either an attachment or possibly a link to a compromised web site controlled by the hackers. That web site would have triggered a download when you clicked on it.
The authorities are expecting a second wave of attacks to happen on Monday 15th of May. It is essential that you and your staff are especially vigilant at this time.
IF you receive an email and you are unsure of its authenticity DO NOT OPEN IT – DELETE IT.
