Global Malware Outbreak: Use Caution Opening Links/Attachments

Start Date:
2017-05-16
End Date:
2017-05-29
Headline: Global Malware Outbreak: Use Caution Opening Links/Attachments
Description:

There has been a global outbreak of Ransomware, a type of malicious software that takes over a computer and locks the user out, preventing access to any files until a sum of money is paid.  Many times, Ransomware infects a computer when the user opens an attachment or clicks on a link that leads to a fake website.

 

The best defenses are to keep software up to date and practice good cyber security behaviors. Be cautious when clicking on links or opening attachments in emails. Delete unexpected emails as well as email from unknown senders. Restart University computers regularly to apply software patches. Ensure that personally owned computers are running the latest security patches and antivirus definitions.
