:iconrule1plz::iconrule2plz::iconrule3plz::iconrule4plz:
We are NOT deviantART operators' just deviants looking to protect the community. If you thought silence was peaceful, you have yet to meet us. Currently, deviantART is filled with lewd and obscene nude photographs, pedophiles, perverts, stolen work, trolls and more. Our goal is to help the moderators fix this by reporting deviations and users and eventually help cut down such images and members on deviantART to make deviantART a much friendlier place. We also like to feature our loud opinions and thoughts about this community as well.

Apple users are also vulnerable to Wanna Cry-type attacks, says cyber security expert for CNBC News.

Even Apple is vulnerable to massive cyberattacks like the one that just hit thousands of victims in at least 150 countries, a security risk management expert told CNBC on Monday. The comments came after Friday's global ransomware attacks which locked up computers running outdated versions of Microsoft Windows in car factories, hospitals, shops and schools in several countries and demanded money from users."That's a common misconception," Aleksandr Yampolskiy, founder, and CEO of Security Scorecard, said on "Squawk Box," when asked if Apple users can't be affected by other cyber attacks. "It happens that this attack is targeting the Windows computers. ... But Apple is absolutely vulnerable to similar types of attacks."

President Donald Trump ordered his homeland security advisor to hold an emergency meeting Friday night to assess the threat posed by the attacks, a senior administration official told Reuters.

You probably heard the news about the new software called WannaCry; it's a new type of malware that can lock your computer and force you to give them money, by paying $300 dollars cash to unlock your database. A group called the Shadᴏw Brᴏkers have released a nasty piece of malware called "WannaCry" which is spreading like wildfire.

It has already infected over 75,000 computers in 99 countries across the globe. This has screwed over the NHS (British health service) and various hospitals around the world, ruined university computers, bank computers... even factories like those belonging to Nissan have halted production.

If it infects your computer, it will encrypt your files and provide a countdown, holding your files for ransom. If you do not pay within the allotted time, they'll delete everything.



DO NOT PAY THE RANSOM if you do get infected.


There's no guarantee that criminals will even bother giving your files back. Once you get the malware, you might as well consider your files gone.

What is this virus, what he can do to you?


WannaCry (or WannaCrypt, WanaCrypt0r 2.0, Wanna Decryptor) is a ransomware targeting the Microsoft Windows operating system. On Friday, 12 May 2017, a large cyber-attack was launched using it, infecting more than 230,000 computers in 150 countries, demanding ransom payments in the cryptocurrency Bitcoin in 28 languages. The attack has been described by Europol as unprecedented in scale.

The attack affected Telefónica and several other large companies in Spain, as well as parts of Britain's National Health Service (NHS), FedEx, Deutsche Bahn, and LATAM Airlines. Other targets in at least 99 countries were also reported to have been attacked around the same time.
Like previous ransomware, the attack spreads by phishing emails but also uses the EternalBlue exploit and DoublePulsar backdoor developed by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) to spread through a network which has not installed recent security updates to directly infect any exposed systems. A "critical" patch had been issued by Microsoft on 14 March 2017 to remove the underlying vulnerability for supported systems, but many organizations had not yet applied it.
Those still running exposed older, unsupported operating systems were initially at particular risks, such as Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, but Microsoft has now taken the unusual step of releasing updates for these.


Here's a screenshot to see how it looks like, screenshot taken from Wikipedia.


Shortly after the attack began, a web security researcher who blogs as MalwareTech accidentally found an effective kill switch, registering a website that was mentioned in the code of the ransomware. This slowed the spread of infection, but new versions have now been detected that lack the kill switch.

Ken Collins of Quartz wrote on 12 May that three or more hard coded bitcoin addresses, or "wallets", are used to receive the payments of victims. As with all such wallets, their transactions and balances are publicly accessible even though the wallet owners remain unknown. To track the ransom payments in real time, a Twitterbot that watches each of the three wallets has been set up. As of 15 May 2017 at 7 PM, a total of 220 payments totaling $59,747.53 had been transferred.

What to do then?


TURN OFF YOUR INTERNET RIGHT NOW. Disconnect your laptop/computer. Turn it onto flight mode if you can. Now take this opportunity, while you're not linked to the internet, to back up your files and folders to an external hard drive. If you don't have one, then buy one now if possible. If you can't, then choose the files most important to you and back them up to a normal USB. Just at least back up whatever you can to a storage device that isn't connected to the internet. It might also be handy to back up installers for the programs you have on your laptop, or even the folders in AppData or Program files (if you know what you're doing).

Once you completed the first step, turn the internet connection back on, update your Windows Updates fully up to date, and download the patches Microsoft is offering. The malware seems to target out of date systems. Windows 10 seems to be unaffected. Nevertheless, if you are using Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 or 8.1, don't hesitate to update your updates.

Update all your Antivirus software. Check the blogs of the antivirus company's websites to see if they've specifically responded at all to the "ransᴏmware" epidemic or "WannaCry". If they haven't, consider installing other antivirus software from trusted sites. AVG, Avast, MSE, and Malwarebytes seem to be good choices. BitDefender is really good against ransomware. I encourage everyone to check it out. AGiLE-EaGLE1994

Update your browser. That yellow bar on DeviantArt makes a lot more sense now. It's best to follow its advice and update your browser. Download the MS17-010 security update. This is the patch specifically for the ransomware.

Will this affect the smartphones?


Wanna Cry is a malicious software that locks a device, such as a computer, tablet or smartphone and then demands a ransom to unlock it. Sadly, it does affect smartphones. So it'd be better for you install an antivirus and anti-malware on your smartphone.

Does this affect Apple?


Even Apple is vulnerable to massive cyberattacks like the one that just hit thousands of victims in at least 150 countries, a security risk management expert told CNBC on Monday, 15 May 2017 | 7:55 AM ET

If you can't find or install MS17-010 for whatever reason, the second safest thing you can do is to disable SMBv1:

How to disable SMBv1:

Bullet; Blue If you're using Windows Vista or 7. Bullet; Blue

Look at the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2696547.Bullet; Blue

If you're using Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2 or other later systems. Bullet; Blue

Open Control Panel, go into Programs, and then click Turn Windows features on or off.

In the Windows Features window, clear the SMB1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support checkbox, and then click OK to close the window.

Restart the system. The SMBv1 protocol will now be disabled. If you want to undo it, just retrace these steps and check the box instead.

How to Protect yourself from the WannaCry or Wana Decryptor Ransomware.

The first thing you need to do is make sure you have all the Windows Updates installed. You need to especially install the updates discussed in MS17-010. If you are using  Windows XP, Windows 8, or Windows Server 2003 then you can use this special update released by Microsoft.

There are a few methods and utilities that we recommend in order to protect your computer from ransomware infections. Three of the methods are Emsisoft Anti-Malware, HitmanPro: Alert, and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. The fourth option is to utilize Software Restriction Policies that prevent programs from being allowed to execute from certain locations. In full disclosure, BleepingComputer.com makes a commission off of the sales of Emsisoft Anti-Malware, HitmanPro: Alert, and Malwarebytes.

Here are few tutorials to show how to remove malware in safe mode:








Here's a video to show you how to remove this piece of malware from your computer permanently.

Video updated, have fun.

Stay safe everyone, and spread the news, good luck!

Information

:iconrule1plz::iconrule2plz::iconrule3plz::iconrule4plz:

1. We are not the deviantART admins.

2. The primary purpose of this group is to encourage silent anonymous reporting nevertheless, we also aid in reporting when necessary.

3. We do not tolerate harassing ANY deviant for ANY reason, sometimes they genuinely don't know what they have done wrong, we do oversee telling them politely of the mistakes they have made, and reporting them CORRECTLY!

4. Please, DO NOT try getting this group involved in personal fights with users. If we see your judgment dedicated to that, we will flag it as spam!

5. Please, respect the reporting system and do not abuse it. Do not go addressing everything that offends you and saying it is worth reporting it.

6. You can review the terms of service and the etiquette policy to see what is permissible and not permissible on this site.

7. We cannot report copied art, we just can't. If you think, you must then tell the original artist, not us.

8. We no longer support or approve screenshots. deviantART forbids them, therefore, it's not our fault.
Unless it's a tutorial or something stupid, then we will allow it.

9. If you want to join, then you must not have anything that violates dA's terms of service in your gallery. We also recommend that your conduct remains appropriate while you are a member of this group.

10. The "Report Deviation" button is your greatest weapon against TOS Violators, use it wisely.

11. Due to the removal of third-party copyright infringement feature, we will no longer be accepting address to copyright infringement altogether. Sorry, blame ProtectArt for this, not us. I like how you make a whole journal about art theft but never do anything to stop it. Users have to report thieves manually rather than the website doing it themselves.

12. Do not send reports anything about youthful members or ban evaders if you cannot file the report yourself then communicate the group by note and a group admin will help you. Furthermore, we will hide any report that requires contacting the help desk.

13. We will hide reports related to harassment, as third-party harassment reports are no longer valid by the deviantART Administrators.Blame Daniel for this, not us.
Moreover, you can still send us harassment reports, and we will do all our best to push Administrators to take care of a problem. However, we won't guarantee you anything.

14. Don't ask to be a Founder, Co-Founder or a Contributor, we will hide and ignore your question.

15. From now on, when you want to report a user to the group, don't send us any reports that contain codes such as:
"Dev"
"Icon"
"@"

"Thumbs xxx" etc, otherwise, this "directly" identifies them and they begin filing against us for harassment. We are highly suggesting you don't bring us any drama here, if you have a problem, note the group and one of the administrators will assist you.

16. Copyright Policy: Learn it and live by it.
**You'd better understand this before sending anything to the group, even a comment.

17. You can watch these groups by catching official deviantART feature upgrades, news, and stuff:

:lock:* A petition asking for art theft policy reform
If this reaches two thousand signatures, we may well see a change to the way this site deals with various cases of possible copyright infringement.
*The petition has been locked. It is no longer working.

This is a Tumblr page devoted to stopping theft! We were asked by another deviant in the community to have it here.

Artist Confessions can be used to disclose big popular art thieves anonymously so their fans will not swarm your page with hateful messages, it also serves as a place for artists to reflect on themselves and one another.
