Avoid like this
To avoid such a large cyber attack, users should avoid opening any e-mail attachments from any of their familiar or unfamiliar e-mail IDs. Also, if you get an email related to any kind of schemes or offers, do not open it. Not only this, users should open any e-mail in the spam folder. Cyber security firms believe that most users open these e-mails and face cyber attacks in the greed of free schemes and offers.
