The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) on Wednesday issued an advisory about Petya or Petrwrap – the latest in the series of ransomware attacks affecting computer systems across the world.
The agency has asked users and organizations to apply patches to Windows systems as mentioned in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010.
The list of warnings also include a warning about opening regular emails. “Don't open attachments in unsolicited e-mails, even if they come from people in your contact list, and never click on a URL contained in an unsolicited e-mail, even if the link seems benign. In cases of genuine URLs close out the e-mail and go to the organization's website directly through browser,” the release said.
