The virus tried to infect more computers in Russia than anywhere else, according to an analysis by Kaspersky Lab, a Russian antivirus company.
Hackers are demanding anywhere between $300 and $600 to release the encrypted data. That's why it's called ransomware. "We need governments to consider the damage to civilians that comes from hoarding these vulnerabilities and the use of these exploits". WannaCry should not have reached disastrous proportions - Microsoft released a patch that could close the vulnerability in March, well before the NSA's tool was decrypted. The ransomware will persist on systems already infected. Playing with fire finally caught up with the victims.
CBRC also pledged to increase its own cyber security management and risk prevention capabilities, and guide banks to conduct monitoring, assessment, early warning and prevention for similar events.
According to Smith, all Windows computers that are fully updated are safe from the attack, and Microsoft has been "working around the clock since Friday to help all our customers who have been affected by this incident".
The WannaCry ransomware cyber-attack has hit more than 200,000 computers in 150 countries since Friday, Europol says.
Update your software and insure that any other PCs on our network have been updated as well. So even people with older computers should go update them. It also confirmed that customers running Windows 10 were not targeted by the ransomware. This is something Microsoft has been arguing for a while, but perhaps this recent attack will make organisations like the NSA listen harder.

The researcher tweeted that he initially didn't know that his actions would stop the malware.
Police said they had not been made aware of any attacks in New Zealand and the briefing to the ministry was a precaution.
"Or we could potentially see copycats mimic the delivery or exploit method they used", he said. Still it's not likely the technique will help many people, particularly because it works only if their machines have not been rebooted. The ransomware will specifically scan for unpatched machines that have the Server Message Block vulnerability exposed.
From hospitals to telecom companies and even government agencies and business have been targeted by WannaCry, rendering their systems useless.The hackers lock data in such a way that users can not find a workaround and sometimes the pop-ups refuse to close, making it impossible to use the systems.
