As you may or may not be aware a new virus attack is currently spreading all across the globe.
The attack in question is called "Goldeneye ransomware"
A security advisory released by Sydney-based cyber security firm Content Security says the virus is delivered via a phishing email with a .doc attachment, with one example having been seen as 'Order-20062017.doc'. The doc file uses a vulnerability in Microsoft Office and Wordpad to execute and begin a chain of exploitation. Once a machine is infected, it spreads within a network using the same exploit seen used by the WannaCry virus.
The Petya virus has spread rapidly across the globe using the same tools exploited by the recent WannaCry attacks.
The campaign of attacks began on Tuesday, taking out servers at Russia’s biggest oil company, disrupting operations at Ukranian banks and shutting down computers at multinational shipping and advertising firms.
HIOD IT recommends the following steps to be taken immediately:
1. Update your Antivirus software.
2. Update to the latest Windows Updates by running Windows Update on your computer.
3. Do NOT open emails from unknown users.
4. Do NOT open attachments from unknown users.
5. Do NOT open any emails an attachment called 'Order-20062017.doc'
