Kennebunk Savings Alerts

Ransomware threats are on the rise as recently reported in the news.  One Ransomware, WannaCrypt, is targeting Microsoft Windows operating systems that are not patched or up-to-date.  When Ransomware infects your computer system, it locks up or encrypts files so that you cannot access them, and then demands payment to restore access.

How Ransomware spreads. Ransomware can spread through multiple methods, including clicking on suspicious links or attachments in phishing emails.  When one computer is infected, it can spread by itself to other computers in a network.

How can I protect myself?  Checking for and installing the latest MS Windows patches is the easiest and most effective way to protect your computer, as well as keeping your antivirus software up-to-date.
