It wasn’t long ago that people were scrambling to retake control of files encrypted by “wannacry” ransomware, today Europe was taken over by a close relative of “wannacry”. Many major organizations are reported to be victims of this cyberattack.

A few notes about this recent attack:

Email Hoaxes, everyone is at risk.

It's Tuesday and you are out for lunch with a good friend who is relaying his recent good luck, he tells you he is about to be a multi-millionaire. He transferred his entire savings to a Mrs. X on the other side of the globe and she is going to give him a percentage of her massive inheritance, from a wealthy land-owning father.

At this point, most people would make a quick exit to the bathroom and stare blankly at the mirror wondering how their dear friend could be such a moron.
