A massive attack erupted on June 27 worldwide by a variant of Petya, a ransomware that encrypts the entire hard-drive rather than each file individually. This attack by Petya crippled many large banks, government offices and private companies worldwide.  


Check Point customers, using  the SandBlast Agent with Anti-Ransomware technology, remain protected, as Anti-Ransomware stopped and analyzed the Petya attack.
