WannaCry or WannaCrypt0r, a new ransomware based on an NSA exploit, has been taking over several computers since the last couple of days (May, 2017). As usual it encrypts user files, and demands a ransom payment in bitcoin for decryption. Airports, Businesses, Govt. organizations, Universities, Health services (like NHS) and even the Russian Internal affairs departments are affected. Over 99 countries are under siege including Russia, Germany (most of Europe), China, US.

Make sure you have backups of important data on a separate external drive and don't forget to patch your systems, cause the NSA vulnerability has been fixed by Microsoft via updates.
