What a hell of a day……
Somehow we ended up getting a ransomware virus on our network and I have been fighting with it all day. It seems that we probably caught it in time so the infection is isolated to just a few computers, but we are still looking.
For such a HUGE issue that is hitting the computer world today, I am surprised at the lack of data and information about it. Most other virus and malicious code have specific fixes you can download and just “click” to remove the software. Since it is such and easy program to find and delete manually, I am VERY concerned that it won’t just easily go away. My paranoia is getting the better of me.
Either way, we are fighting this out at the moment and I will be spending the night to get everything fixed. Keep your fingers crossed for us.
