Pilisadara — A conversation

Posted on: Sun 21 May 2017

Adelaide Lakhanda spoke to IT security specialist Dasuntha Dinesh about the wannacry ransomware attack on computers and tips for protecting your personal computer, including:

  1. Make sure the computer operating system is up to date with all patches installed.
  2. Use an antivirus software and keep the software up to date.
  3. Think before opening any attachments from unknown sources. If in doubt don’t open the attachment and delete the email.
  4. Copy any important documents and photos to an external hard disk (which is not connected to the internet) for safe keeping.
