WannaCry Worm Attacks The World

Stop It From Infecting Your PC With These Easy Steps

A malicious ransomware appeared out of the blue the past week and has infected a multitude of computers across the globe — Singapore included.

But fret not, for there’s a way to protect your computer from faltering to the nasty malware. Just perform the following steps below and your computer will be safe from WannaCry.
