It's like WannaCry all over Again!

Dear All,

As you may be aware by now, there is a new ransomware attack that is infecting computers around the world.   You can read more on this at:

I would like to inform you that we have analyzed this ransomware attack and have determined that it presents very little risk to the Trent environment.  This attack is based on the same vulnerability exploited during the first WannaCry attack and we have successfully patched our environment against this vulnerability. 

Do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.

Thank You
