Overview

The WannaCry ransomware worm is unprecedented for two reasons. First, it's a ransomware worm. Second, it appears to be using a recently patched exploit that was stolen from NSA to propagate. Jake Williams' firm, Rendition Infosec, has been tracking the use of this exploit since it was publicly released and completed another internet wide scan of the Internet for this threat while you were in class today. Come learn what we know so far about the malware, the leaked exploits, mitigation strategies, and predictions for future impact.
