After the recent WannaCry ransomware virus attack forms a near variant called Petya and backup Mischa. Currently, it is spreading very rapidly through the countries of Ukraine, Russia, Spain, and France.  The virus is delivered via email containing a Dropbox link or attachment.  Apple iOS and Android operating systems are not affected by this virus.

  5. Ensure your computer is up to date.
