    Virus/Cryptolocker called "WannaCry"

    Could AVID tell us what we should do about this? As far as i can tell the ISIS software is running on a Windows Storage Server 2008, which if unpatched is potentially vulnerable to this.

    Well then, a friendly helper on Facebook linked this: http://resources.avid.com/SupportFiles/attach/Avid_MS_SecBulletin_status_2017_03_21.pdf

     

    As i read it we can apply all Windows updates , so EVERYONE get going ASAP

    All the Patch Tuesday updates are supported for the System Director and Client Manager.
    STIGs is also supported.

    Thank you Bob

    I spend the weekend patching everything and the last patching was the old ISIS and it's running flawless.

    These security/update bulletins, can you subscribe to those?

    just to be 100% sure.

     

    Is it safe to download ALL windows updates to an old ISIS 5000 with "Windows storage server"?

    ISIS version: 4.7.4.15820

    You should update to 4.7.11. i'm confident that is what has been tested.

    but even an unpatched ISIS is quite safe as long you dont open mail & browsing the web on it?

    or does this virus infect by the network?

    wannacry can propogate via an SMBv1 exploit, over the network. You should update windows to modern patch levels, though you may need to upgrade system director software prior to doing so if you care about staying in a tested environment.  

     

    FWIW,  I patched an entire interplay environment to may 2017 security update rollups on monday and have had zero issues. We have not disabled smbv1...yet.
