Many organisations worldwide have been affected by ransomware attacks in the past few days. The ransomware exploits a recently discovered vulnerability in the SMB protocol used by Microsoft® operating systems to access files across a network (shared drives, home folders etc.).
This vulnerability can be removed by applying the patch MS17-010 to all versions of Microsoft Server and client operating systems.
This patch has been tested and validated for Community Connect® 4 (CC4) networks by RM.
