Reports of ransomware known as “WannaCry” are targeting computers worldwide. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that infects a computer and locks out a users’ access to it until a ransom is paid to unlock it. Microsoft released a patch in March that addresses this specific vulnerability, and installing this patch will help secure your system(s) from the threat. Individual users are often the first line of defense against this threat and we encourage all faculty, staff, and students to update operating systems and implement vigorous cybersecurity practices at home, work, and school. These practices include:

  • Update your systems to include the latest patches and software updates.
  • Do not click on or download unfamiliar links or files in emails.
  • Back up your data to prevent possible loss, whether you are at a home, work, or school computer.

We are actively sharing information related to this event and stand ready to lend technical support and assistance as needed to support the University community.

For best practices to address, additional information is available at https://www.us-cert.gov/security-publications/Ransomware.
