Supportedge have been monitoring this threat since 28 June 2017
Again None of our clients have reported this infection.
What is the danger to Supportedge’s clients?
This problem is an issue for Microsoft Windows systems only. The Petya attack starts by sending spam messages containing links to download a ZIP archive. The archive contains a malicious file and as well as a JPEG image. The file names are in German at this stage, the file names are made to look like resumes for job candidates, for this reason the main is HR staff in German-speaking countries.
Australia has not been hit by a wave of attacks. This attack uses the same exploit in Windows that was used to spread WannaCry virus. There are notable differences between Petya and WannaCry, the largest is, WannaCry had a kill switch, Petya does not! If you are infected by Petya Your computer becomes locked and held at ransom (no access to the operating system).
