On May 12th, 2017, organizations across the world were attacked by a new,
fast-spreading piece of malware we now know as WannaCry.
It is now considered one of the most widespread, and notoriously destructive malware attacks in history, halted only by a researcher getting a lucky break, registering a domain name embedded in the malware that unexpectedly acted as a kill switch.
But even today, more than two years hence, WannaCry continues to
affect thousands of computers worldwide.
