Petya or NotPetya – Cynet Stops It

The big conversation around the recent ransomware attacks has been – Petya or NotPetya? So we say – does it really matter? The most important thing is that your organization is protected.

While the world was scrambling to protect their assets from Petya, there was a parallel attack, and though it had similar characteristics to Petya and many were treating it as such, it was actually a variant of Loki Bot malware. Which brings us back to the point – who cares what it is, as long as you are protected?
