Major Computer Virus - May affect you.Post: Nathan
OK, I know this is days old news by now but in case you are not aware of this yet, you REALLY NEED to protect yourself. This weekend there was a major global hack and it is the largest in US history. They will encrypt your files and hold them for ransom. However even if you pay them, they are not releasing your files.

This affects anyone with an outdated version of Windows. The patch just came out about a month ago so if you are behind on your updates. Do them A.S.A.P. You may want to make sure you have a recent backup as well. Just wanted to make you all aware. This ransom ware is also a worm so it will propagate itself. This means if you get on a network with someone infected, it may infect your machine. Just an FYI.
