Still running Windows 7? Protect yourself from the BlueKeep malware

Haven't patched your system to help guard against this malware? It's time to do something about it.

Authorities are still warning Australians about the BlueKeep malware, which enables attackers to take control of your computer to mine cryptocurrency.

If you’re running Windows 7, Vista or XP, or Windows Server 2003 or 2008, you should download patches from Microsoft, warns the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC).

This follows warnings about the Emotet malware, which tricks users into click on email attachments that look like they come from legitimate sources.

To guard against Emotet, the ACSC suggested disabling Microsoft Office Macros, in addition to maintaining firewalls and creating an offline backup of data.
