A new version of the WannaCry ransomware is hitting organisations worldwide. It's already affecting some major organisations, such as the UK's NHS.

Lock down your PCs now and update any anti-ransomeware programs you have. Better safe than sorry as they say.

Twice this past weekend I was Browser high-jacked while reading news stories.  I reported the high-jacks with website URL's to my AV vender.

Both times it was attempting to download and run a .hta file (which is an HTML file) as a fake Flash Player update.

I corrected the problem so far by first, not allowing the download, and second, by turning-off Flash Player in Edge.

My other advice(in addition to turning-off Flash Player when browsing) is do not run your computers with UAC turned-off. 

Most of these hacks today are made by corrupting Web Pages through Flash Player so even though you are on a legitimate web page you can be hijacked to a malicious web page where a malicious script will immediately run and attempt to infect your PC.

Good luck and safe computing everyone.

The best way to protect your computer system and network is to take regular backup. Also, we should use an Internet Security program. I'm using Norton Internet Security, my dad recommended me.
