I heard that the ransomware that screwed up the british health system and many others.... that was because they were running win xp machines?
or is it more than that?
Any tips on protection?
I saw this page:
that talks of turning off smb 1 protocol for file sharing.
What's the downside / what problems would that cause if we do that on each machine?
Those powershell commands are for win 8 and above.
running those commands on win 7 gets error messages about that command not found.
are there comparable commands to run on win 7? it's not safe by default / nothing to worry about?
