Petya Ransomware

As has been reported on many news organisations, Petya, a dangerous ransomware variant has been released that impacts Windows client and server operating systems by targeting the same vulnerability (Eternal Blue) as WannaCry. It spreads by infecting machines open to this vulnerability, likely through an infected email attachment.

Ensure you:
  • Have up to date virus definitions for your clients and servers.
  • Install the latest patches using your update method for your Microsoft client and servers
  • If your network is unpatched, assess the risk to your services and if appropriate disable vulnerable protocol SMB (v1) following these instructions from Microsoft.
  • Have regular cyber security awareness for your colleagues to mitigate against threats that target people

El Reg has an indepth article covering the details.
