Another global ransom ware attack is currently underway.  Report started coming in about an hour ago from Europe.  This attacks seems to be from a evolved ransom ware virus with very similar characteristic to the WannaCry virus earlier this year.  If you recall, these new strain of virus does not require human clicking on a link.  These new virus are self propagating across older, networked, unpatched Windows operating systems.

Additional details are in the Cyber security Discussion Forum.

update from 12:30 pacific time

The email provider for the attacker of today's ransom ware has shut down their account.  So victims are unable to pay any ransom. Unless there are backup files, there is no known way at this time to recover from this infection.
