HACKER ATTACK: WANNACRY, 150 AFFECTED COUNTRIES

HACKER ATTACK: WANNACRY, 150 AFFECTED COUNTRIES

A new global-level hacker attack, WannaCry.

Among the victims of the new virus Wannacry are the English sanitary structures , FedEx computers and Bicocca University in Milan.

The ransomware operates blocking machines and encrypting data, demanding ransom payments in bitcoin for their decryption.

It spreads exploiting the vulnerabilities of the network, blocking the “victim” PC in first place and propagating automatically through a worm code in all the vulnerable PCs in the network system and in all the storage systems directly configured on the PC.

In order to get the malware it is enough to open an infected attachment, (even by a single user). This will cause the spreading of the malware on all the non-protected and/or non-updated computers in the enterprise network.

Differently from other circulating ransomware, WannaCry is not only based on spreading through phishing emails with dangerous links and attachments.

At the moment the conditions required for the virus to spread are clear, (non-updated operating systems, non-protected stations), but the way in which the infection is spread is still not clear (whether through email, links or infected attachments).

It is suggested not to open any links or attachments coming from suspect e-mails.
