A Massive RansomWare attack (largest in history) hit over 200,000 computers across the world (India hit massively as well). 1000s of patients are not being treated and patient data has been locked. Along with that, all your data will be in the hands of the hacker, so he can do anything with that.
British cybersecurity expert Graham Cluley doesn't want to blame the NSA for the attack, though he said they have a duty to citizens who "are living an online life".
How much ransom was asked? It may infect your PC in different methods.
Just one person in an organization who clicked on an infected attachment or bad link, would lead to all computers in a network becoming infected, said Vikram Thakur, technical director of SymantecSecurity Response. That way even if you're hit with ransomware you've got all your files protected elsewhere. To decode them, hackers demanded $300 in ransom, then the amount would double after three days.
The patch to fix the Microsoft networking vulnerability the ransomware used to break into computers, though, was sent out by the software giant in February, Forbes said. So, some users get hope here after all, and Mac users need not be anxious at all!
There are slight chances that you can remove it if you have any advanced anti-virus programs or by entering into safe mode and removing those files manually.

From the sources found on the Telegraph, it is believed that a group of hackers called "Shadow Brokers" are responsible for this attack. WannaCry reportedly used an infection vector developed by the US National Security Agency.
"Obviously, they want those tools in order to spy on people of interest, on other countries, to conduct surveillance", Cluley said.
Update your systems ASAP! You should also take extra care when opening emails that are from an unusual sender.
If you don't recognize the email address, don't open the file. The most disruptive attacks were reported in the United Kingdom, where hospitals and clinics were forced to turn away patients after losing access to computers.
"It's critical that organizations and employees, particularly those in our most critical sectors like healthcare, start to think pro-actively about how to protect themselves from ransomware". The same goes for cloud services, though they can be helpful.
