Beware ransomware. Keep safe by applying software updates and backing up offline and offsite regularly: Alert Priority High

A ransomware campaign has impacted a number of organisations globally, including the UK’s National Health Service.

Ransomware is malicious software that makes data or systems unusable until the victim makes a payment.

We are continuing to monitor the situation closely. If you have been affected by the Wanacry ransomware, you can report the incident to the Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (ACORN).

ACORN provides information on how to recognise and avoid common forms of cybercrime, such as hacking, online scams, online fraud, identity theft, attacks on computer systems and illegal or prohibited content, as well as offering advice to those who have fallen victim.

ACORN makes it easier and more convenient to report cybercrime to a law enforcement agency.
