June 29, 2017 Update:
Forescout has released an updated Security Policy Template (v17.0.6) to mitigate the Petya Malware. Please refer to the Knowledge Base article referenced below for important details.
This technical advisory contains information on how Forescout customers can use CounterACT to mitigate the Petya ransomware attack.
The Petya (a.k.a. NotPetya) ransomware campaign, is causing disruption to organizations and critical infrastructure around the globe. Similar to the May WannaCry outbreak, this ransomware impacts Windows systems and a successful infection results in encrypting the contents of the hard disk. A ransom of $300 USD in bitcoins is demanded per infected host to decrypt and recover the encrypted files.
