Protect Your PC against the NotPetya Cyber Attack

Course Level 1: Introductory

Estimated Study Time: 1-2 hours

On June 27th, 2017, the NotPetya cyber-weapon began infecting thousands of computers world-wide. NotPetya initially appeared to be ransomware, as the virus claimed to be holding computer files hostage until a sum was paid, but it soon became clear that even upon payment, files would not be returned to the user. Thus, NotPetya has been labelled a cyber-weapon, due to its intention to wreak chaos and havoc.

This course will teach you about how the NotPetya virus has been spread, what the virus does once it takes hold of a network, and furthermore, what you can do prevent an attack. If your computer has already been infected by the NotPetya virus, you will learn about potential solutions that may be able to assist you in the restoration of your device.
