Unless you are living under a rock, you probably have heard about the WannaCry Cyber attack that has already caused a lot of causalities including Britain’s NHS, Fedex, and a Spanish telecom firm, and has claimed over $57000 in ransom (as of Monday afternoon PST). The WannCry Ransomware, aka WannaCrypt, WanaCryptr or Wcrypt discovered on May 12, 2017 and used in a large Cyber-attack, and has since infected more than 230,000 Windows PCs in 150 countries.
As the name suggests, the WannaCry Ransomware holds the infected computer hostage and demands that the victim pay a ransom in order to regain access to the files on his or her computer. Everyone ranging from antivirus companies and cybersecurity experts are working hard to find ways to decrypt files on infected computers, but no luck so far. The only hope is that the affected users have backups of their data available, of each and every single document, their pictures, videos, songs, and anything and everything else that is stored on their PCs, because the only other option right now is to follow the instructions offered in the software to pay the ransom.
For now, the WannaCry Ransomware has affected a user’s offline data, but what if this was to happen to your online presence. What if a malware/ransomware was to attack all your social accounts?
