Ransomware Cyberattack, its Impact and Personal Experience, if anyFor the past two days or so many individuals and organisations are impacted adversely by the Ransomware Cyberattack. Banks, schools, hospitals and some business houses experienced breakdown of their computers. More specifically, British health services are known to the first target. Spain, Russia, Ukraine, Japan, Brazil, Indonesia and many other countries suffered paralysis of some of their services including transport, banking, factories; etc.
In India, some ATMs have reportedly been shut and negative impact has been reported in Kerala and West Bengal. Many of us received messages from unknown origin which were subsequently shared on Whatsapp by many.
The purpose of my raising this thread is to find out if any of the members of ISC has some personal experience of this Cyberattack. Have any of us taken serious view of this and also taken precautions? Do you think there is a threat even now? Or any other information they may like to share for the benefit of others.
