Protect Your Organization From Ransomware

Vision using organizations should ensure that they have done everything they can to protect themselves from the JohnyCryptor ransomware. is a high-risk ransomware which locks the files on an infected computer and then demands payment from the victims to unlock the files. Once activated, encrypts files and displays a pop up with instructions on how victims can buy the necessary decryption key which allegedly will recover and unlock the encrypted files.


Organizations that use weak or default passwords on local Windows accounts and domain accounts are at an increased risk for attack. All Vision using organizations should ensure that the accounts that are utilized within the Vision infrastructure use strong passwords to protect the Vision environment from this ransomware. Deltek strongly recommends that organizations change default passwords for all accounts that are created by the Vision installation in favor of strong passwords that are rotated regularly.


If your organization has not changed the default passwords created by the Vision installation, we recommend you do so immediately to protect your organization from this ransomware. For additional information, please refer to Chapter 7 of the Vision 7.5 Advanced Technical Administration Guide.


If you have any further questions, please contact your account manager or log a support case.
