A major ransomware attack using a leaked NSA exploit known as “WannaCry” has hit approximately 150 countries in May of 2017. About 200,000 infections globally have been detected and the attack, which uses the WannaCry (WanaCrypt0r 2.0) ransomware, continues to spread.
WannaCry utilizes the ETERNALBLUE exploit targeting newly disclosed vulnerabilities (MS17-010). Once leaked, it took only 28 days for this exploit to be used in a full-scale cyber attack. Organizations that scan for vulnerabilities only monthly or less frequently can still be at risk.
