Protection from Petya

Organisations around the world are concerned with a spate of cyberattacks, based on a family of encrypting ransomware. Petya variants are targeting Microsoft Windows-based systems. The attacks are designed to permanently disable machines, yet there appears to be no intent for produce financial gains for the attackers. These blog entries carry further details.

Tackling the Petya threats

Recent cyberattacks from Petya variants have thrown up startling challenges in IT security. While they are not identical to WannaCry threats, they operate in a similar fashion. Organizations around the world need to understand the elements of this malware and be prepared for possible new tactics and schemes in the future. With that in mind, IBM has produced an overview detailing steps that help prevent such attacks.
