News, Updates & Analysis

WannaCry, WCry, WanaCrypt & WanaCrypt0r

Wanna (also known as WannaCry, WCry, WanaCrypt and WanaCrypt0r) ransomware exploded onto the ransomware scene on May 12, 2017, with a mass campaign impacting organizations in many countries. This second variant of the ransomware has been leveraging the EternalBlue (MS-17010) vulnerability, released by the Shadow Brokers actors, in order to spread over victim networks via the Windows file sharing protocol, Server Message Block (SMB), following an initial infection.

The WannaCry ransomware attacks have been extensive, targeting healthcare organizations, including doctor’s offices and hospitals, as well as telecommunication systems and gas and electric companies. Early infection reports originated in Europe but have since spread across the United Kingdom, Spain, Russia, Pakistan, and many other regions.
