NOVI, Mich. - June 17, 2017 - PRLog -- Last month, we saw the entire world being brought down to its knees by WannaCry Ransomware. WannaCry Ransomware used the Eternal Blue exploit, which was a part of the hacking toolset created by NSA and subsequently released by Shadow Brokers along with many other hacking tools created by NSA.

Microsoft had issued an emergency patch for WindowsXP/Windows 2003 and for other Operating Systems too, however as we have seen in the past, organizations have exhibited lackadaisical attitude towards security and vulnerabilities. Many of the Organizations and Users haven't yet patched up their systems, although this is one infection which has got the maximum media coverage in past few years.

For past four days, we have been observing an interesting activity in WannaCry infections wherein many of the systems which have not yet been patched are experiencing BlueDumps whenever WannaCry fails to inject a payload into the system.

All the Organizations and Users who haven't yet patched up their operating systems should apply the patches made available by Microsoft.

Implementing patches only to mitigate WannaCry Ransomware is not just the end but it is imperative to apply the patches which were made available recently since these patches shall protect your systems from the hacking tools which are exploiting the vulnerabilities present in the NSA Hacking tools and are now available in the public domain.
