Hello friends today i am share latest tips about ransomeware attacking...
Recently, a new strain of ransomware attack broke out. Many organizations in Europe and the US have been crippled by the new ransomware called Petya/GoldenEye. It spreads rapidly across the world and is expanding the infection. Here’s what you need to know about Petya/GoldenEye and how to prevent the attack:


What Is Petya/GoldenEye?
Similar to WannaCry, Petya uses the Eternal Blue exploit to infect Windows devices, especially older Windows systems. Not like WannaCry which encrypts the files one by one, Petya is much more dangerous that can damage the whole hard drive, even stop you entering your system. 

How Does Petya Attack Work?

While Petya is trying to infect a computer, Blue Screen of Death can be a signal, then the system will reboot by force to finish the encryption. This can be ignored easily as the process looks like Windows scanning and repairing the system itself. Once the reboot finished, the computer is encrypted and a note will pop up to alert the user to pay the ransom. 





How to Prevent Petya/GoldenEye Attacks?

Ransomware attack can be a real disaster as it threatens your important files and money. So you need to keep alert to any suspicious action on your computer. Once you get this popup below, you should shut down your PC immediately in case of infecting Petya.
