With the recent Petya Randsomware outbreak hitting millions of people out there, I thought I'd share the fact that BleepingComputer.com has a vaccine. You can get all the detail on their site at

Daniel,

Thanks, that sort of news doesn't always spread as fast as the "run for your lives, another malware attack is coming" headlines.

My company's IT department just sent out a mass E-Mail informing us that SOMEBODY in the company not only fell for the "please let us remotely control your PC" phone scam recently, but did it with a company PC. Fortunately, they didn't get very far. whew.gif

Changing your real table name to "Table1" and your real form name to "Form1" in your posts makes it more difficult to understand what's going on, not easier.
