Cyber Attack Alert

A renewed warning to be aware of Viruses & Cryptolocker RansomWare, Scam emails and hackers. There has been a world wide cyber attack with over 200,000 affected cases already confirmed.

If you receive a virus or are even concerned you may have a virus, do the following:

  • Turn off the computer straight away
  • Call Consulting IT
  • Notify all staff to be alert

If you receive a virus on more than 1 computer:

  • Shut down every computer you have
  • Call Consulting IT

Possible warning signs may be:

  • Unable to access files
  • Strange error messages
  • PC background changes

There is already 1 confirmed case in Australia and another 2 potential cases yet to be confirmed. The nature of this virus is such that it could spread rapidly.
