NHS cyber-attack: hospital computer systems held to ransom across England

We have discovered a couple of hours ago that a new exploit is hitting windows servers around the world, and the biggest attack they did was on the NHS of England: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/may/12/hospitals-across-england-hit-by-large-scale-cyber-attack

This exploit is hitting randomly servers across the world, and you could be a target as well. We strongly recommend that you update your windows server with the latest security patches ASAP and install a security software like NOD32.

Aparently this exploit encrypts all your files, and forces you to pay 300$ in BTC in order to recover the files, otherwise they will delete them all.

This is why Backups are important, and you should always have at least 1 backup of your VPS, we do offer backup snapshots as addons for all the VPS ranges we have.
All the best from #LGHOST team, be safe!
