WannaCry and How to Protect Against Ransomware

On Friday and over the weekend, a ransomware attack hit a number of global companies and domestic institutions with malicious software known as WannaCry or WannaCrypt.

The attack has affected many organizations including the NHS, FedEx, Nissan and Telefonica, and has reached over 300k computers running Microsoft Windows OS.

WannaCry encrypts data files and asks users to pay ransom in bitcoins under the threat of deleting data if the ransom is not paid.

With these emerging cyberthreats, it is now more important than ever to be aware of cybersecurity protocol and the importance of having up to date antivirus software installed. Users who have Norton Security products installed, active, and up to date are protected against this threat.

What Are Your Greatest Weaknesses?

Wondering how to answer the interview question, “what are your greatest weaknesses”?

  • Make sure your answer does not touch on the essential qualifications or merit criteria of the job; and
  • State how you are overcoming that weakness.

Examples of greatest weaknesses can be?

  • Public speaking – I am taking classes, i.e. Toastmaster, to become better at public speaking;
  • Not providing my input without being asked – I am taking public speaking classes.
  • Can not say no to helping someone in need of help – I am making sure that my work is done before I assist others.
  • Fast decision maker – Taking a step back to examine all possibilities; making a mind-map, pro and con list, etc…
  • Opinionated

You should never say that you have no weaknesses!

Generally, you should avoid the following weaknesses:

  • Punctuality;
  • Multi-tasking;
  • Strong organizational skills;
  • Poor customer service;
  • Not hardworking.

Linting HTML using CSS

You can use the following CSS to lint your HTML.

Avoid inline styling:

*[style] {
  border: 5px solid red;
}

Check to see if a link has no or meaningless href value, and check for empty interactive elements:

a:not([href]),
a[href="#"],
a[href=""],
a[href*="javascript:void(0)"],
a:empty,
button:empty {
  border: 5px solid red;
}

Check to see if a img has a alt value:

img:not([alt]),
img[alt=""] {
  border: 5px solid red;
}

Make sure the document has a language attribute value:

html:not([lang]),
html[lang=""] {
  border: 5px solid red;
}

Check the document meta elements for not being set to UTF-8.

meta[charset]:not([charset="UTF-8"])::before {
  content: " • Bad charset: " attr(charset) " ";
  display: block;
  color: red;
}

See if its the first element after the opening <head> tag.

meta[charset]:not(:first-child)::after {
  content: " • Bad charset: not first child";
  color: red;
}

Check for unaccessible viewport attributes:

meta[name="viewport"][content*="user-scalable=no"]::after,
meta[name="viewport"][content*="maximum-scale"]::after,
meta[name="viewport"][content*="minimum-scale"]::after {
  content: " • Bad viewport: " attr(content);
  color: red;
}

Check for attributes in our HTML that are deprecated or no longer needed:

script[type="text/javascript"]::before {
  content: " • Unnecessary type attribute on script: " attr(type);
  color: red;
}
link[rel="stylesheet"][type="text/css"]::before {
  content: " • Unnecessary type attribute on link: " attr(type);
  color: red;
}

Check for unlabelled form elements, and check to see if any form elements are missing both name and id attributes:

input:not([id]),
select:not([id]),
textarea:not([id]),
input:not([name]),
select:not([name]),
textarea:not([name]) {
  border: 5px solid red;
}
label:not([for]) {
  border: 5px solid red;
}
form:not([name]):not([id]) {
  border: 5px solid red;
}
