Petya ramsomware campaign

There are reports in the media today of the new ramsomware attack impacting business and government agencies around the world overnight.  Called 'Petya' it is spreading in the United States, Europe and Asia.  Petya makes your computer or its files unusable unless you pay a fee (a ramsom).  There are emerging reports of Australian organisations being impacted.  

Please ensure all email users are following guidelines to avoid infection:

  • -  Ensure your antivirus is up to date
  • -  Don't click on links in emails
  • -  Don't download files from websites
  • -  Call the help desk if you have any problems

With the end of financial year upon us, emailed invoices are likely to be a vehicle for ramsomware attacks, so please be sure of the email source if you do receive emails this way.
