Who’s behind the massive cyber attack? And what can you do to protect yourself?

(Fox News) Cyber attacks that hit 74 countries across Europe and Asia Friday, impacting the public health system in Britain, apparently involved a leaked hacking tool from the National Security Agency. The attack used ransomware, which is malware that encrypts data and locks a user from their data until they pay a ransom. The tool, which was leaked by a group known as Shadow Brokers, had been stolen from the N.S.A. as part of a wide swath of tools illegally released in 2016.  Shawn Tuma, an Attorney and cyber-security expert joined Lars to talk about what you can do to protect yourself.
