How to remove Ransom: Win32/WannaCrypt
« on: May 15, 2017, 01:51:58 AM »

This ransomware can stop you from using your PC or accessing your data. Unlike other ransomware, however, this threat has worm capabilities. It uses an exploit code for a patched SMB Eternal Blue vulnerability, CVE-2017-0145. This vulnerability was fixed in security bulletin MS17-010, which was released on March 14, 2017. We remind all customers to keep computers up-to-date.

The exploit code used by this threat to spread to other computers was designed to work only against unpatched Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 (or earlier OS) systems. The exploit does not affect Windows 10 PCs.

How to remove WannaCrypt, WannaCry, WanaCrypt0r, WCrypt, or WCRY

There is no one-size-fits-all response if you have been victimized by ransomware. There is no guarantee that paying the ransom will give you access to your files.

If you've already paid, see our ransomware page for help on what to do now.
Run antivirus or antimalware software

Use the following free Microsoft software to detect and remove this threat:
  • Windows Defender  for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, or Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7 and Windows Vista
  • Microsoft Safety Scanner
You should also run a full scan. A full scan might find hidden malware.
Use cloud protection

Use cloud protection to help guard against the latest malware threats. Itís turned on by default for Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender for Windows 10.

To check if it's running, go to All settings > Update & security > Windows Defender and make sure that your Cloud-based Protection settings is turned On.
