What You Need to Know About the Petya Ransomware Attack

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - 8:02pm

Computing Services and Systems Development (CSSD) is aware of a new malicious software program named "Petya" that made news yesterday for infecting corporate systems in the U.S. and Europe. "Petya" is a type of ransomware that relies on unsuspecting users to click links or open an infected email attachment to download it. Once it has been opened, it encrypts files on the affected computer and network share drives, and the user is then required to pay a ransom to recover their files. One reason this malicious software has spread so aggressively is that it then attempts to infect other computers on the network that do not have the latest security updates and are not protected against "Petya".
