Global Attack: Beware of Ransomeware… NCC Warns Subscribers and Telcos

As long as PC and smart devices exist, Malware and Trojans
will not seize whether now or in the future. There is a global attack of this
Malware called Ransomware on all smart devices and PC and they are making huge
amount of money from it.

NCC, in a statement, said the Ransomware is
capable of infecting and encrypting all files on a system or any smart device
until an amount is paid for a decryption key, or other means of retrieval
(which may lead to data loss) are used to recover the system as an alternative.

“This situation demands that proactive
measures be taken by all players in the telecommunication eco-system to
forestall the hazards of critical data loss, financial losses and ultimately
network/business disruption.’’
The ransomware hackers have succeeded in infecting over
300,000 computers over the weekend and make $US60,000. They use anonymous
bitcoin wallet to collect their money.
So if you are a Telco or Subscriber, NCC Urges you to do the
>>Update your Software to the latest Microsoft Patch
release in March. Android and other platforms should do the same.
>>Don’t open e-mail attachments/links from unknown
>>Do not click pop-ups and applets on unknown websites
and installing effective antivirus software for their mobile devices.
All operators are to ensure continued deployment of
effective firewalls, login passwords and antivirus management regime.
This is global and its becoming serious. Don’t fall victim
