This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now.
Believe it or not, it only took one victim in Ukraine to infect computers around the world with the Golden Eyes Ransomware virus.
What makes Golden Eye so dangerous is that it can spread across a computer network and infect machines that weren't necessarily duped by it.
It's now easier than ever for even the most amateur of criminals to launch these types of attacks Thanks to a leaked NSA exploit, called Eternal Blue.
Unfortunately the malware is able to encrypt some machines that have been fully patched with the latest security updates, which allowed Golden Eye to permeate private VPN networks.
If you're worried about protecting yourself from the variance of malware that's been making recent headlines, you can manually download the latest security patches to patch the exploited parts of Windows.
Never open email attachments you're not sure of and always err on the side of caution if something looks shady.
You could stay up to date with the latest by downloading the cnet tech today app in the Apple or Google Play store.
