    Has anyone been affected by this virus attack? I'm afraid to turn on my laptop that I don't update. Is it already too late? Should I just turn it on?

    Seems like they're only targeting companies. Haven't heard or read of any personal computers unless you're a CEO of a big company I would just update and bite the bullet.

    As soon as you turn it on you will know if you've got it. I had it happen to me. It changes all the icons on your desktop, and won't let you open anything. Mine also added a note icon that when clicked basically said, we got you , if you want your shit back, send money for the decryption code to unlock all your files.

    Go ahead and fire up the computer! Tell the wife that you were hit by the ransomware and then use the money for truck mods. We will never divulge your secret!

    They found some vulnerability in Windows and Microsoft sent a patch for it on the latest update. If you update windows you're ok. If you don't you're vulnerable to this virus.

    Is not guarantee you were affected by the virus..the only way your computer was hit by the virus is if it was hit before you turned it off

    Nah, wouldn't ever pay. I think I got it from a forum that I clicked on a .jpg link because you couldn't see pics if you weren't logged in.

    I believe you have to do something "iffy" to get the malware on your computer like downloading software that you don't recognize or opening up an email from someone you don't know. Best thing to do is back up your files to an external device. At least then you can format your computer hard drive, reinstall your operating system, and recover your files without paying the asshats anything. If these ingenious jerks would put their minds to something useful, like curing cancer, we'd have a cure by now.

    You will need to go online but here's a direct link to Microsoft's update page for the WannaCrypt exploit. Damn NSA needs to keep their stuff secret!

    I was told they can hide it in certain links, .jpg, etc, and often times the website might not know its been added (hidden in the link) immediately.

    I think the ransomware jerks have targeted businesses with deep pockets. They are interested in zapping those that have the resources to pay. Wait a minute.........Joon just bought the wife a new Jaguar.....
