Virus and Ransomware Alert

Dear Customer

We have been alerted to a new Ransomware outbreak that has originated in Europe.

Petya is a malicious software that infects a computer, usually when the user opens an infected attachment from an email.

Whilst we do not suspect any of our systems to be at immediate risk, we strongly advise you to remain vigilant and do not open any email attachments that appear suspicious or from unknown sources. Be particularly vigilant if a Microsoft Office document asks you to “enable macros” as this will put your system at risk of infection.

As always, if you have any uncertainties, please contact your Support team.

Kind regards,

Eileen Byrne
