The SMBKitchen Crew and Third Tier staff have put together a group materials that were published as part of our SMBKitchen Project and only available to subscribers. However because this virus is spreading so rapidly and is so serious we’ve decided to make these materials available to everyone.
The kit includes an article on cleaning up after infection but more importantly provides materials and instruction for deploying preventative block using software restriction policies. The articles provide instruction for installing them via GPO on domain computers and terminal servers, and non-domain joined machines too. We have also provide GPO settings that you can important into your environment.
We’ve zipped it up into a single file. Download it now

I can’t tell you how much time and money I’ve wasted on explaining my business to CPA’s. I recommend you don’t do that and instead hire Rayanne to Tech Your Books. She can solve problems and get your books setup so you can make money. She’s an MCSE and an Accounting professional. A rare combination that means she can Tech Your Books. http://www.thirdtier.net/tech-your-books/
