Mid-Week Video Day: What Ransomware is, How it Works and How to Stay Protected

With the whole WannaCry ransomware news rushing around like lightning, I decided to post this video so that every reader here knows what ransomware is, how it works and what you can do to stay protected! Without the need to take a whole IT class, of course. ๐Ÿ˜†

Also, while you’re reading this, what you should do now is:

  • Stay offline for a few days! Don’t panic!
  • Update your anti-malware programs
  • Run your Windows Updateย (for those using Windows computers)
  • Don’t open any suspicious web links or email attachments (unless you know 100% what they are)

Good luck and hope we won’t be part of the statistics. ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s nice of you to spread awareness on this. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Glad you like it! I decided to try it when I started this blog early this year as I have a bit of a low self esteem, so it’s really nice to know you like it. ๐Ÿ˜€
