Press Release (ePRNews.com) - DENTON, Texas - Jul 04, 2017 - A ransomware attack known as “Petya” has caused significant turmoil to many businesses both internationally and nationally. The malevolent software has spread to organizations such as the food company Mondelez, legal firm DLA Piper and Danish, and shipping and transport firm Maersk. The program is causing systems and networks to lock up and ultimately putting a halt to production.
Occurring within weeks of another major cyber-attack, WannaCry, companies are becoming crippled as a result of both events. “Petya” spreads in networks using Microsoft Windows.
