Good morning, it has come to light that all versions of windows (post XP) are vulnerable to a new form of attack.

This means that if a user downloads a picture and opens it on their machine, it would be possible for an outside agent to run anything they want to on that machine, cryptolockers, keyloggers, trojans, etc.

Please remind your staff to follow their protocols and not download anything that is not from a trusted source, and to be especially careful with regards to images sent through e-mail.
If you have queries please speak to your managed service engineer, or contact the help desk.

Kind regards,

The Connect-Up Support Team
