Whittlesey Library Attacked By Ransomware

Whittlesey Library – Panic Stations early this afternoon, when I heard and saw one of the Libraries Assistants Desk Computers get the hit…..I am unaware whether any of the other computers were affected…..desperate measures on the telephone helpline whilst all services stopped.
I can not emphasise enough the need to invest in some good Anti-Spyware, Anti-Hacking and Anti-Ransomeware software.

There is a lot of software out there some free and some you pay for.

Since I run many computers and systems I pay for mine and !!!! in 25 years have been targeted on many occasions – but my software has blocked and got rid of the attacks….

I run several different types of software – but it protects me – and this website and the users who view it……you won’t catch anything nasty from here – I hope…..

[Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents or limits users from accessing their system, either by locking the system’s screen or by locking the users’ files unless a ransom is paid.]

Normally targeted at individuals, we have experienced the NHS being targeted last year.

There is software to recover your files if your computer has been ‘hacked’ – but one of the best ways is to make back-ups of all your data/files and photo’s

If you or your family/friends have been targeted contact me I know how to solve the problem.
