In recent times, Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Readiness Team has observed a rapid increase in the number of ransomware related incidents and we would like to draw your attention to this development. As of now, the best solution for ransomware attacks is to periodically backup your valuable information / data. Furthermore, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that after getting a backup of the respective data, the external hard disk on which the backup is made available should not be connected to your computer on a regular basis but is to be maintained offline.
