One of the biggest online ‘extortion attacks’ ever recorded…

An unprecedented global “ransomware” attack starting Friday has affected over 100,000 organizations in 150 countries. *Britain’s National Cyber Security Center said it could have been much worse if not for a 22-year-old cybersecurity researcher identified online only as ‘MalwareTech’.       https://goo.gl/M3OR1p

How to protect your computer against the ransomware attack –

PCs running Windows should still take a few precautions.

-First, install any software updates immediately and make it a regular habit.

Turn on auto-updaters where available (Microsoft offers that option).

-Microsoft recommends running its free anti-virus software for Windows.

-If you don’t already have a backup routine, start now and regularly save copies of all your files. That way if your machine gets infected and your photos and documents are encrypted, you don’t need to worry about losing them.

-Don’t click on links that you don’t recognize, or download files from people you don’t know personally.  Source: CNN Money   https://goo.gl/ViJWVI

 

Congrats to graduates @ Wake Forest University who ‘walked’ this morning. 

 

One mom celebrated Mother’s Day by walking with her son?

Both graduated – together – from UNC-Chapel Hill yesterday. Lu-zi-ta Francis decided to go back to school after becoming a mother at a young age. The divorced mother of 3 stated that she had to put her education on the backburner.

Lu-zi-ta majored in public health, her son (Luth-fi) in information science. Mother and son took classes together at Durham Tech and both transferred to UNC-CH.  WTVD: https://goo.gl/V2YPyZ

Breaking News: The US Supreme Court is letting stand a lower court opinion from last summer that struck down North Carolina’s voter ID law.

The law was challenged by civil rights groups and the Obama administration, which argued that it had a ‘negative’ impact on minority voters.
