If you are using Windows 7, you may encounter ransomware virus in recent days, especially WannaCry, also known as WannaCrypt, WannaCryptor, Wanna Decryptor or WNCRY. There are already many news that there are great many (over 230,000 on 18th) computers over 150 countries or regions (mostly in Russia, Ukraine, India and Taiwan) have been defeated by the army of this evil action. But there are still many machines escaped from WannaCry and worked properly. Why can they survive this strong wave?
How to avoid virus attack?
I think they have done some solutions of preventing ransomware. Such as cutting off the Windows 445 port. Installing the MS17-010 update (for Windows Vista, 7, 8.1, 10, Server 2008 (R2), Server 2012 (R2), Server 2016) released by Microsoft 2 months ago. Upgrading to Windows 10 and so on.
They also have a good habit of using a computer. For example, backup regularly. If you have made a backup before, you can restore data to another safe and un-connect to Internet’s computer after attacked by a virus. If you haven’t a strategy of backup, you may realize now how important backup is. In this post, we recommend you to try AOMEI Backupper Free(Especially for WannaCry Ransomware). We reviewed AOMEI Backupper two years ago, but this time, we will focus on how to defense the situation or how to deal with encrypted files or unencrypted data.
