  1. I know a number of the people playing SC4 are still using older O/S's, but this may apply to you, even if using a more modern system. You may have heard about a big flaw in Windows systems that's been affecting many corporations and allegedly even the Russian government this weekend. What is the problem? In short, there is a flaw (security risk) that's been inside Windows for a very long time. The NSA/US security agencies knew about this a long time ago, but kept it quiet and used it for their own nefarious purposes. They made some special software tools, known as rootkits, that allowed them to use this vulnerability to access affected systems. A few months back, hackers managed to get hold of these tools and swiftly worked out how they worked. This weekends problems which downed Telefonica in Spain, the NHS in the UK and DB in Germany amongst others, are all related to this vulnerability. Microsoft patched the issue for supported Windows systems, that's 7 and up, back in March. Of course you are only safe, if you have installed said updates. After this weekends calamities though, MS took the unprecedented step of issuing a patch for older, out of support systems. That's as far back as Windows XP, Vista and Server 2003 editions. If that doesn't tell you how serious this flaw is, nothing further I say will help. Anyhow, please, please, please, if you are using an affected system, take the time to download and install the patch from here. If you are using a supported system (Win 7 onwards), you should just run Windows Update and ensure you've all the latest security patches from the Monthly Roll-Ups. Failure to patch your system could lead to infection in the form of a blackmail scam, where your entire hard drive's files are encrypted, so you can no longer access them. The scammers are then demanding between $300-$600 to "unlock" these files for your PC. Of course, being scammers, they can't be trusted. Almost certainly your computer would be compromised in other ways. There is also no real guarantee you'll get your files back. The only solution that's safe is to fully wipe your drive and restore from a backup, assuming you have one. So you could loose all your data if you get caught out.
