New malicious software
We are monitoring a massive ransomware attack that appears to have infected many organizations around the world. The ransomware spreads rapidly on an organization’s network, targeting unpatched Microsoft operating systems. Once infected, files on a Windows computer are encrypted and a window appears demanding the user pay approximately $300 in Bitcoin to unlock the files. The computers that are most vulnerable to this attack are Windows computers that have not been patched recently. Most SAS computers are patched and managed by SAS computing, and their patches should be up to date. Avoid clicking on unexpected links or opening files from people you don’t know or companies you don’t do business with.
