News Release: DHS S&T Awards $206K to Carnegie Mellon University

Multiple Petya Ransomware Infections Reported

US-CERTUS-CERT has received multiple reports of Petya ransomware infections in many countries around the world. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that infects a computer and restricts users' access to the infected machine until a ransom is paid to unlock it. Individuals and organizations are discouraged from paying the ransom, as this does not guarantee that access will be restored. Using unpatched and unsupported software may increase the risk of spreading ransomware and other cybersecurity threats.
