Ransomware email: be vigilant

Posted in: Computing Services, Security

There have been reports that an educational institution has been targetted by a ransomware email. It contains an attachment that, when opened, scrambles files on your computer and on shared drives.

As a result of these reports, we recommend that you do not open any email attachments from unknown sources and ensure that you have antivirus software installed which is up to date. You can read the full guidance on protecting yourself against ransomware in our blog post.

Please feel free to contact us should you need any further information and advice about this issue.

We strongly advise you to back up your files on a regular basis.
