You might have noticed in the news that a global cyber attack labelled “WannaCry” or ‘WannaCrypt’, infecting 300,000+ computers across 150 countries with ransomware. The purpose of ransomware attacks are to extort payment from individuals who click a link and in doing so, release the ransomeware onto their machine. This malicious software encrypts their data and requires a payment in order to “unlock” the machine.
While individual people and their machines are the target of such attacks, out of an abundance of caution, we are applying the Microsoft MS17-010 patch to Membee’s primary servers. The patch will be applied May 17, 2017 between 12:00 AM EDT (UTC -4) and 4:30 AM EDT. At some point during this time, Membee may be offline completely for a few minutes as systems refresh with the updates.
We will be monitoring this process and we will give Membee a thorough once over when the updates are finished.
