WannaCry Ransomware

Postby alvarnell » Sun 14 May 2017 12:24 am

I didn't anticipate getting any questions about this, but I was wrong.

Malware definitions have been updated to include the ability to detect the WannaCry ransomware that you've read about recently.

Virus definitions are updated every day to look for new threats, so please be sure to check for updated virus definitions daily to ensure you're as well protected as possible.

For what it's worth, the WannaCry ransomware only affects computers running Microsoft Windows - it cannot infect or cause any problems on your Mac.

ClamXav currently stops all known Mac malware, which includes Mac-targeted ransomware.
