But some experts argue that the new virus may cause data loss and hard to recover due to the use of more powerful cleaning software.

Europol set up an emergency coordination group and put forward five 'anti-virus' suggestions: update the application program and operating system in time; back up the data; use effective security tools to protect the computer system; do not use accounts with administrator authority in daily business; do not click suspicious attachments or links.
