WannaCry? Ransomware Spreads Globally…

A ransomware attack began last week in Europe, targeting thousands of computers running Windows. Ransomware is malicious software that makes it impossible for the user to access their computer files unless they pay a ransom. Ransomware attackers frequently ask to be paid in bitcoin.
