This one is called PetYa – according to sources it’s using the same attack vector as last month’s WannyCry/WannaCrypt outbreak. Thanks to @hackerfantastic  and The Hacker News for early updates.

Most of the early victims of this attack are bigger companies that decided not to upgrade and patch their systems.

People who are running updated systems with up-to-date antivirus, mail filters, and web protection should be well-protected against this one.

Please be extra-careful with attachments from people you’re not expecting!
