As you’ve likely heard, WannaCry is a new ransomware variant that takes advantage of a vulnerability in the Windows operating system (MS17-010) to encrypt the infected computer’s data and hold it hostage until a ransom is paid. In addition, the vulnerability enables WannaCry to quickly spread to other machines in the same environment – all without any human intervention. While Microsoft issued a patched to the vulnerability in March 2017, millions of computers have not been updated and remain susceptible to the attack.
