You're probably aware that there's a massive ransomware epidemic spreading right now. It's already affected companies and computers in more than 150 countries, and causing untold misery for hundreds of thousands of people whose computers have been rendered unusable.
If you're running Windows 10 and you have enabled automatic updates, then you have nothing to worry about. The same goes for Windows 7 and 8.1.
However, if you use Windows XP, Vista or 8.0, you are at serious risk. Microsoft has released a patch which will protect you from this particular issue, which you'll find at http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4012598, and you should install it as soon as you can.
