WannaCry (aka WannaCrypt, WCry, WanaCrypt0r 2.0, Wanna Decryptor) is yet another ransomware variant. This particular strain was coupled with a Windows exploit dubbed EternalBlue which allowed it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the internet beginning on May 12, 2017, when the first wide-scale infections began. Perhaps the most high-proflle compromise to-date has been the large swath of health care institutions in the UK that were essentially shut-down and rendered unable to provide care to their patients. While not technically advanced, the use of the EternalBlue created a ransomworm that spread much faster than any other previously reported ransomware outbreak.
