Customers calling you and asking if they’re safe??
Wcry is demanding a ransom of $300 to $600 in Bitcoin to be paid by May 15, or, in the event that deadline is missed, a higher fee by May 19. The messages left on the screen say files will remain encrypted. It’s not yet clear if there are flaws in the encryption scheme that might allow the victims to restore the files without paying the ransom.
We have two products that stop Ransomware like this in its tracks:
- Cadan Cloud Share – $10 per user per month
- Cadan Core/Deluxe/Premium Managed Services
- Regular critical patching and updates prevent malware like Ransomware
- The fix, MS17-010 was released in March, 2017 and all our managed customers were patched
