There have been regular conversations about hacking recently and this is because there are constant hard hit attacks on businesses, causing their PC’s to go in to shutdown mode; unless a ransom is paid. There has been the WannaCry virus which caused the NHS to shut down, NotPeya was the virus that crashed bank systems and more viruses have gone global. There has been a new tool that has been created to help you understand if your PC is a vulnerability to hacking, and we will be giving you all the details about it.

Eternal Blues

This is the tool that scans your PC and picks up any vulnerabilities in your PC. With so many new viruses being developed, it can be sometimes hard to constantly keep your PC safe, which is why you need to correct software in place to tackle this.

How does it work?

You can download the scanner on to your PC and once you open the window, you just need to click the ‘scan’ button and it will scan your whole PC and pick up any vulnerabilities in your PC. It will produce a table of contents, indicating what parts of your PC are at risk and also what parts aren’t so you know if you need to take action or not.

What if my PC is vulnerable?

If your PC so happens to flag vulnerable, you can easily get it protected by us! If you haven’t read our blog already, we provide Heimdal for customers, clients and prospects. It’s extremely cost efficient for yourself and it minimizes your chance of being an easy target.

Sometimes it’s hard to see the point in having an anti ransom system as you think it will not happen to you. However there are more attacks on  the rise and you could become a victim today. It’s always better to have the correct and safe measure in place to keep your data safe.

Once a PC gets hacked, all your information is exploited which can lead to fraud if the criminals get their hands on private banking and identity information.
