8 Steps to protect yourself from Wanna Cry Ransomware

The Wanna Cry ransomware virus will lock down your computer and encrypt your files. Once encrypted, the virus will prompt you to pay a ransom fee to decrypt your files. In most cases payment of the fee will not guarantee your files.

This Ransomware spread through a weakness in Microsoft Windows which was formerly exploited by US surveillance agency NSA.

This tool, unfortunately, was leaked in April 2017 and is now being used by hackers behind Wanna Cry Ransomware.

In response, Microsoft released a fix for this vulnerability which can be applied by those who are still safe from Wanna Cry Ransomware.

  1. Back Up your computer Immediateley.
  2. Immediately patch and update your Windows with Microsoft’s recently released fix.
  3. Be careful not to click on harmful links in your emails.

  4. Be wary of visiting unsafe or unreliable sites. Never click on a link that you do not trust on a web page or access to Facebook or messaging applications and other applications.
  5. If you receive a message from your friend with a link, ask him before opening the link to confirm, (infected machines send random messages with links).
  6. Be aware of fraudulent e-mail messages that use names similar to popular services such as PayePal instead of PayPal or use popular service names without commas or excessive characters.
  7. Use anti virus and Always make have the last update.
  8. Make sure your windows system has the last update that closes the gap.

hdd to ssd upgrade improve performance

HDD Upgrades

A laptop was brought in that was not booting into windows. The drive was diagnosed as faulty and an upgrade to a solid state drive was recommended.

When a computer reads data from a hard drive it uses technology similar to any record, CD or DVD player. It is limited by the rotation speed of the platters to read and write from the disc that is spinning. Due to this moving part it uses a large amount of power and is fragile to shocks. One way that hard drives have improved over time is by increasing the RPM they spin at, a standard drive will run at 5400RPM, some hard drives will be labelled as “green” or “power saving” meaning that they operate at a lower RPM.

A solid state drive uses circuitry to store data and is has no moving parts. As it has no moving parts and doesn’t require a spinning disc it is less fragile to shocks. While an SSD upgrade doesn’t improve the clock speed of a computer, it means that the data can be read more rapidly allowing shorter boot, program and application launch times. An average improvement is about 1000% increase in speed of reading.

The upgrade for the laptop brought in was successful and the user’s data was migrated to the new drive. The laptop is faster than it was out of the shop, but set up how the user likes it.
