Ransomware Engulfs Internet

Cyberspace around the world has fallen victim to a massive ransomware attack.

How could such a thing happen? New Scientist sums it up:

The first computers were infected by people unwittingly clicking links in phishing emails. But from each patient zero the software then spread through computer networks by itself. Once installed on a machine, the malware encrypted all of the files it could find, locking them away from users.

SP Guard helps protect against ransomware by unmasking phishing emails. With SP Guard, users can spot and report attack emails instead of becoming victims.
