Egnyte Update on Global Ransomware Attack

The WannaCry/WCry ransomware worm works by encrypting files and changing their extension to ".wcry". Egnyte now blocks this extension and disables clients (Desktop Sync, Desktop App, Egnyte Drive, and Storage Sync) that any attempt to upload these files since a client uploading files is expected to be infected with the virus.
