WannaCry - What to Know and What to Do


WannaCry set off alarms globally, and has infected more than 200,000 computers across more than 150 countries.

On Friday, May 12, 2017, a malicious ransomware program known as WannaCry was discovered infecting computer systems all over the world. Victims include Deutsche Bahn (Germany’s train system), FedEx, Spain’s telecom system Telefonica, and England’s National Health Service. While a web security researcher fortuitously discovered a “kill switch” that appears to have slowed the spread of WannaCry, the speed and efficiency with which it has spread over just the past week has worried cybersecurity experts and again raised public awareness of ransomware and other cyber threats.
