On Friday, 5/12/2017, the world saw a massive cyberattack that spread globally in a only a matter of minutes.
The initial attack vector has been email, through spam. These messages are typically fake invoices, job offers and other lures which are sent to random email addresses. Within the email is a .zip file and once clicked, that initiates the WannaCry infection.
The attack is then spreading on internal networks using a P2P exploitation of SMB (Server Message Block) known as EternalBlue. The files are being dropped by a worm which abuses SMB, a network file sharing protocol. Other aspects of the malware leverages file-less exploitation techniques, and the malware is morphing rapidly in the wild with over a dozen variants seen thus far.
The file extension used is .wncry, which drops a ransomware notification named: @Please_Read_Me@.txt in common file and folder locations.
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU BE EXTREMELY VIGILANT IN OPENING EMAIL WITH ATTACHMENTS OR SUSPICOUS LINKS!
The IT team at QUALITY is working extremely hard to ensure all of our clients systems are protected against this latest threat. If you are unsure of an email which contains an email attachment or suspicious link, please take pause and reach out to us for verification.
If you office uses white boards for meetings (or would like to!), or if your employees use them for keeping a to-do list in their cubicle, but you would like a more modern/contemporary look, then this could be for you!
1. Substituting the traditional office whiteboard with glass is a great way to make your office space unique, fresh and fun. Try adding a frosted background or your logo in the bottom corner!
2. Glass whiteboards are not only more durable than whiteboards, they are also easier to clean.

Quality had the privilege of working with Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation on a furniture move at the beginning of September. Our Furniture team was able to move them from an office in Harrisburg to their new location in New Oxford PA. There were several logistical challenges to the move but our team was able to get everything moved and setup for them in just 1 day!
Their mascot Hugs helped out with the move too! Thanks Hugs and all the people at Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation for all the amazing things you do!
One of Quality’s goals for 2015 was to update our website to make it more user friendly and approachable. We spent many long hours with the design team working on the details and fine tuning what we were looking for. A video was planned that would highlight “The Quality Difference” and market Quality’s ability to assist our customers across all divisions.
We proceeded to have 2 days of filming and many retakes to get the best video content. The end result was the video streaming on our website. We are very grateful to the production team that put this together. And with every good production there has to be some “Quality” bloopers.
