A new ransomware wannacry

Hello folks,

I don’t know how I can turn this in to a longer article, so I’ll post it to my blog and leave it at that. I joined the Sans group with a webbinar in regards to this new threat called Wanna Cry. This article from Krebs on security entitled U.K. Hospitals Hit in Widespread Ransomware Attack was posted on the 12th of May. As Brian covered, he mentioned what this was, and the fact that not only were the hospitals hit with this, but so was a telephone company. Sans’s webbinar last night said there were at least 56,000 different infections at one point, just by doing scans, nothing more. They made it clear that they never accessed any machines, just did scans.

Sans indicates that while this was bad, its only going to get worse. USCERT has a writeup entitled Indicators Associated With WannaCry Ransomware which was posted yesterday as well. The SMB system I’m not too familiar with, but this can hit even with patched systems. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open for more.

Be Sociable, Share!
