Campus network users:
Recently, onion blackmail software infection has occurred in many colleges and universities in China. Disk files will be encrypted with. Onion suffix by virus. Only by paying a high ransom can the files be decrypted and recovered, causing serious losses to learning materials and personal data.

Here we remind teachers and students:
At present, Microsoft has released patch ms17-010 to fix the system vulnerability of "eternal blue" attack. Please install this patch for your computer as soon as possible; For XP, 2003 and other machines that Microsoft no longer provide security updates, it is recommended to use 360 "NSA weapon library immune tool" to detect whether there are vulnerabilities in the system, and close the ports affected by the vulnerabilities, so as to avoid being infringed by blackmail software and other viruses. Download address: http://dl.360safe.com/nsa/nsatool.exe
Methods of infection prevention:
① Control panel → windows firewall → advanced settings → inbound rule → new rule → port → TCP → enter "135445" below → block connection → create a new rule and select UDP
② Apply the latest official patch https://technet.microsoft.com/zh-cn/library/security/MS17-010
③ XP Win2003 or below https://dl.360safe.com/nsa/nsatool.exe (360's detection and repair tool)
Tip: after the official patch is completed, you can download the 360 test in the article to see if the repair is complete.
Blogger reminds: Microsoft official released a patch in March, 360 patch may cause the computer system can not start normally. Campus network, office, printing room, company and other public network, equipment use should be cautious. The blogger didn't make a patch and used the restore wizard to backup the important data on the cloud disk or mobile hard disk. Close ports 445, 135, 137, 138 and 139, and close network sharing. This blackmail outbreak is caused by the lack of security construction and awareness of enterprises and universities on the intranet, which has nothing to do with the information security industry. It has been blackmailed to restart the system and patch it. The local tyrant can also pay for it, but it doesn't have to be solved for you. (it's important to get into the habit of backing up your data!)
