    Vaccine, not Killswitch, Found for Petya (NotPetya) Ransomware Outbreak

    If already affected dont restart, encryption made during restart.
    -----------------------
    from the tips:
    This means victims can create that file on their PCs, set it to read-only, and block the NotPetya ransomware from executing.
    How to Enable the NotPetya/Petna/Petya Vaccine

    To vaccinate your computer so that you are unable to get infected with the current strain of NotPetya/Petya/Petna (yeah, this naming is annoying), simply create a file called perfc in the C:\Windows folder and make it read only. For those who want a quick and easy way to perform this task, Lawrence Abrams has created a batch file that performs this step for you.
    for this batchfile read in above link

    Dont understand the mechanisme why one must unHide the extensions for know filetypes.
    I created the file without doing that. so what will the problem then be? and which coding must be set in the editor? ansi is default
    perfc.dat is now visible. maybe the reason is to be able to check if its done correctly.
    this advice is strange-i thought it should be hidden for security reasons:
    Once you have enabled the viewing of extensions, which you should always have enabled.

    why the complicated way to create perfc.dat? copy.exe and then renaming?
    first they say creating perfc.dat only later one must create also perfc.dll very confusing.
    maybe best going the batch-way.
