Recently, another ransomware attack has spread internationally. This time, the ransomware was identified as Petrwrap, and it targets the same exploit as the WannaCry attack from April. Essentially, the virus works by targeting the SMB file-sharing system in Windows systems. Windows released a patch for the vulnerability in response to WannaCry, yet many users are still at risk as shown by the more recent attempt, Petrwrap.
No client of Heiden Technology Solutions was affected, by either attack, due to the rigorous safe guards we employ. This is especially important as only four out of 61 antivirus services could successfully detect the virus and protect the user.
