Alarming news last week, from the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) who have warned that a powerful virus is set to strike.
The warning came as the FBI, in partnership with authorities in several countries around the world, shut down a network of criminally operated computers that were stealing important information from victims’ machines.
But since that announcement, which directed concerned users to a website which promptly crashed for more than 15 hours, many computer users are wondering what they need to do to stay safe on the internet.

Two main areas can hopefully prevent long term problems:-
1. Ensure that you have a commercial, up-to-date anti-virus software installed on your computer.
2. Make sure that all your data is backed up.
If you are concerned that you may be at risk, please call IT Positive and we will check your computer(s) for you.
