Is Petya gonna getcha!!
After security firms have analysed this nasty piece of malware one thing has become very clear, it’s not designed to generate ransoms but to create mayhem. The outbreak of this file-scrambling malware nasty occurred last night and it is mainly targeting Windows PCs.
The malware has been named NotPetya which is another variant of the Petya ransomware which hit headlines back in march. Since this malware nasty has exploded last night it has taken out many businesses from different industries, these include shipping ports, law firms, supermarkets and ad agencies. Once Petya is inside a network it moves from computer to computer encrypting as it goes, at a very fast pace.
