WannaCry Ransomware – What To Do?

You may have heard about the virus WannaCry Ransomware which locks up the files on your computer and encrypts them in a way that you cannot access them anymore. And worst of all, there is NO FIX. Security experts warn that it exploits vulnerabilities in older Windows operating systems, including Windows XP, so many of you have nothing to worry about.

But what should you do? Prevention is the best defense. MACximize is ready to help you update your software with the latest security patches. We can also configure an automatic backup like Time Machine; this is essential. As always, remain extremely careful about opening any email attachments, from known or unknown sources. And call MACximize immediately if you suspect an infection or ransomware is detected.

Remember, a little MACximize Maintenance could be the difference between security and losing your data on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad or worse – ransomware or identity theft!

And please don’t keep us a secret — tell your friends! 😀
