Global cyberattack

Last week, the world was rocked by a global cyberattack, the biggest in history. In 150 countries, 200,000 individuals and businesses were the victims of this attack.

This cyber attack uses the Microsoft leak: SMBv1. Microsoft explains how you can disable SMBv1 in the various Windows versions. Note: only disable SBMv1. SMBv2 and 3 are important for the good operation of your Windows systems.

      •    Patching SMBv1
