  1. Ransomware attack


    Hello guys, i have a problem and i need help. to cut the long story short, my computer is infected with a ransomware (with ''nelasod'' extension on all docx, xlx, ppt and videos files). This has made it difficult to open any of my document in my external hard drive. It seems it has infected only my external drive since i moved all my documents, downloads, movies and videos' location to the external hard drive ( so as to not write to my ssd frequently in order to increase my ssds lifespan). I have scan with windows defender without success. any help will be appreciated.


    thank you.


    Mattern

    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

    There are no specific steps that you can take to protect yourself against ransomware - only the same steps that you take to protect yourself against all other threats on the internet:

    1- Stay up-to-date with the latest news about attacks.

    2- Adopt safe computing practices.

    3- Backup every day, if not more often.

    With respect to backups, at least some of your backups should be stored on devices that are physically disconnected from your computer. An alternative is to use a backup program (like Macrium Reflect) that locks down backup archives from being changed or
    deleted.
