Petya virus - vaccinate against it
« on: July 03, 2017, 09:12:37 am »
There is a way to vaccinate a computer against Petya.

Here is a link -

The advice consists of creating a file called perfc in the C:\Windows directory and setting it to read-only.

YOU MUST DO THIS ON EVERY COMPUTER RUNNING WINDOWS.

Note: The data files of our programs have file extenssions of FIC, NDX and MMO. These are not trashed by Petya or Wannacry viruses.
