Makes you WannaCry, super tech saviour from Devon!

Did you know the guy who spotted the “kill switch” in WannaCry virus that is spreading panic in the hearts of IT Managers around the world, Marcus Hutchins, is from Ilfracombe… must be growing up in the Devon air that makes him so smart!

I asked Martin Crockett from East Devon IT for his thought…

The systems that were affected were mainly older systems that were not being maintained. With regard to the NHS, they paid £5.5million to Microsoft to keep support for the systems but they ditched it a couple of years ago despite warnings.

This highlights the importance of having a proper maintenance routine and a company such as EDIT watching your back.

Would you like to discuss your IT systems with Martin?

Let me know…

Thank you

Jon
