Why You Should keep your Windows os updated

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

A ransomware has been spreading this week called WannaCry 2.0 and it has affected most NHS Hospitals in the UK (whom are still using windows xp)

and a simple update has blocked the way the virus gets onto your box.

The exploit was found by the NSA in the us and it was used as a hacking tool the run code without the owner of the pc knowing.

It got leaked and distributed by a hacking group known as The Shadow Brokers (LINK TO WIKI PAGE https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shadow_Brokers)

and Microsoft released a patch for Windows 7,Windows 8 and windows 10 to fix the vulnerability in the os's and people who have those Windows  please search for updates and install everyone that comes up and if you have windows vista or later consider upgrading by buying Windows 7,8.1 or 10 and keep updating because you could get a virus or other malicious software on your box.

Watch this video by an ex Microsoft employee: 

  Thanks For reading,

Hi !

Since some Users like me already have noticed this Ransomware.

It's Best to put a disclaimer next time for users who have never heard of such ransomwares like these before.

But since this is helpful, i will pin this as protection.
