Having type 1 or 2 diabetes requires a person to always know what their blood sugar levels are.

WannaCry Ransomware

Published by:

As of this writing, the WannaCry ransomware outbreak infected 350,000 victims in more than 150 countries.

What makes WannaCry unique?
WannaCry is a unique ransomware strain that exploits a critical Microsoft Windows Server Message Block (SMB) vulnerability to spread like a worm, leading to its rapid propagation after just a few hours of initial detection. The SMB exploit spreads across network shares, so the effect of the attack was minimal to consumers.

The unique trifecta of a broadly available vulnerability with a working exploit and the ability for execution without human intervention created the perfect environment for a “wormable” ransomware attack. Since the WannaCry attack, another attack called Adylkuzz has surfaced that takes advantage of the same Windows vulnerability, emphasizing the need for action.
