China issues warning for new ransomware virus

China's National Computer Virus Emergency Response Center (CVERC) reportedly issued a warning and urged Windows users to protect themselves against a new ransomware virus similar to the ‘WannaCry’. The new ransomware virus, "UIWIX", encrypts and renames files through a bug in the Windows operating system. "UIWIX ransomware is picking up where the first WannaCry wave left off, without a kill switch domain and the same self-replicating abilities that enable it to spread fast," the firm said in a statement. Notably, "WannaCry" cyber attack hit hundreds of thousands of computers worldwide last week.
