WannaCry Ransomware Outbreak Isn't Over Yet

WannaCry Ransomware Outbreak Isn't Over YetMonday saw a subdued but significant repeat of Friday’s global ransomware attack, as the WannaCry worm, also known as WanaCrypt, WanaCrypt0r or WCry, infected a new wave of Windows PCs in areas that it had partly missed on Friday. Reports came in of hundreds of organizations, including many universities, hit by WannaCry in China, where software piracy is commonplace and where tens of millions of computers still run the outdated Windows XP. Two showed up Saturday, although one had a similar “kill switch” and was quickly shut down as well.
