An accidentally discovered "kill switch" is slowly curbing the spread, but it won't do any good for computers that are already affected.▲圖/翻攝自中國郵報Microsoft, which is regarding the ransomware as a severe threat, advises affected users to run one of three free programs to detect and remove the threat.Microsoft users with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 should use Windows Defender, while those with Windows 7 and Windows Vista should use Microsoft Security Essentials.
