A new wave of hacks has reached tens of thousands of computers in more than hundred countries around the world. The spread of the WanaCrypt0r 2.0 began in the afternoon of May 12. According to Avast, it has detected more than 75 thousand of infections.
To unlock the computer, the attacker requires the owner $300 dollars. The message about the need to pay pops up every certain period of time. If the user does not pay the required amount, all files will be deleted.
In case if such virus is detected, users are recommended to immediately switch-off the network.
Microsoft has said that the protection against this type of virus has already been developed.
