WannaCry ransomware attack affects millions

The first ever global worm-based ransomware attack – WannaCry –crippled close to 150 countries in May 2017. Ransomware usually spreads via email, relying on human intervention to initiate infection.

In a matter of hours, WannaCry spread to Internet-connected computers infecting many that were unpatched and exposed to the Internet.

In particular, the ransomware exploited older Windows operating systems, including Windows XP. The attack was a stark reminder about keeping antivirus, firewall and operating systems up-to-date.

The IT security industry is exploiting machine learning to enhanced preparedness and threat response speeds.

Can Machine Learning help mitigate ransomware attacks?
