    Ransomware attack in Windows 1809 - Please help


    My PC having i3 -2nd generation processor with 8GB DDR3 RAM recently got infected with ransomware. The only software I recently installed was of Nvidia’s graphic driver of GTX 1050ti 4GB from its official website. I have a habit of checking https also. Okay here are the series of events which happened before the ransomware attack.

    1. My PC had initially Nvidia GTX 750 – 2GB graphic card which is now two years old. It stopped working, ran out of warranty. My PC won’t start.
    2. I bought a new Graphics card, installed it, installed the drivers from their legit and official website.
    3. The next day I get ransomware in three folders of mine in E: partition of my 500 GB hard drive. It has two partitions. C is the system one, E is the other one.

    They are the first three folders in my E drive if I sort them alphabetically. They didn’t have much data in them. I was really happy as all the other folders of mine were safe, and the entire C drive was safe. I then disconnected the LAN cable from my PC as a safety measure.

    I called up a friend of mine who faced ransomware attack two months back. He is saying that I must not be happy as the virus can spread to other folders as well even after I scan my PC with any new antivirus. I was not using any 3rd party antivirus. I was using windows defender only. My windows version was 1809. I don’t remember the full version that has many decimal numbers after 1809.

    Please help me what should I do. I have not switched on my PC since the last seven days believing it to be a Pandora’s box. I’ve been using my laptop intensively ever since.

    The encrypted files have the extension of ioyhnnr

    :)

    About Ransomware attack

    Here is Microsoft's Customer Guidance on the Ransomware Attack:

    • In March, we released a security update which addresses the vulnerability that these attacks are exploiting. Those who have Windows Update enabled are protected against attacks on this vulnerability. For those organizations who have not yet applied the
      security update, we suggest you immediately deploy Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010.

    • For customers using Windows Defender, we released an update earlier today which detects this threat as Ransom:Win32/WannaCrypt.
      As an additional “defense-in-depth” measure, keep up-to-date anti-malware software installed on your machines. Customers running anti-malware software from any number of security companies can confirm with their provider, that they are protected.

    • This attack type may evolve over time, so any additional defense-in-depth strategies will provide additional protections. (For example, to further protect against SMBv1 attacks, customers
      should consider blocking legacy protocols on their networks).

    Ransomware attack on Windows 10 PCs.... question

    This latest ransomware attack has me wondering something, because the glitch was found within Windows, as I am now unable to look at a complete list of updates outside of what was recently updated in Windows Updates.

    In the Creators Update, there's no way of finding all of your updates. How do I know that the Creators Update is safe and secure from this latest ransomware attack?
