I was around when the “Lovebug” virus hit the industry, and that was a wake up call to the industry to take on better protection, anti-virus protection and also awareness.  It seems now, years later, with Ransomware being creative to encrypt and hold your machine hostage, that another wakeup call has appeared with WannaCry.  If anything, this goes to show more attention needed on keeping your OS up to date, patches, and also continue the trend of education to the users against Phishing.    While the industry is focused on protection, response and education, we also have to educate the public as this is the start of the spread for so many cases.  So, this article below is is the wake-up call for awareness which is one good start.   Have a good read from SC Media.
