THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: V S Achuthananthan has made a statement that measures should be taken to make all government offices Microsoft free with immediate effect, on the backdrop of the recent large-scale global ransomware attack.

“Based on various reports, it’s clear that the attack has only happened on systems with Microsoft software. Even though, there is the logical option to move to independent software, many offices are still continuing to use corporate software. We have to avoid such virus attacks in self-governing institutions,” he said.

He further pointed out: “There was an attempt to train all school kids in Microsoft as part of their syllabus back in 2001-2006. Because that move was strongly opposed then, all schools in Kerala are now free of Microsoft. Many government department also adopted this change.”

He also said that the recent virus attack at many self-governing institutions points to the fact that many such institutions have not yet moved from Microsoft to independent software.
