New Cyber Threat
#1
Dear All,


A new cyber attack is affecting computer systems around Europe and everywhere.

A strain of ransomware known as "Bad Rabbit" is believed to be behind the trouble,

and has spread to Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Germany and any elsewhere.


The criminals behind Bad Rabbit are tricking people into infecting themselves, by disguising the malware as 

an Adobe Flash installer and planting it on legitimate websites that have been compromised.


PREVENTIVE MEASURES

1. Don't install any update from Adobe Flash Player! Never!

2. Do not provide personal information when answering an email, unsolicited phone call, text message or instant message.
Phishers will try to trick employees into installing malware, or gain intelligence for attacks by claiming to be from IT. 
Be sure to contact your IT department if you or your coworkers receive suspicious calls.


3. Make backup to your important data by uploading to your email or saving them to your external hard disk or burning them to CD/DVD.

4. Make sure your Anti virus is updated.

5. Avoid using flash drive or make sure scan them before opening.
