What is WannaCry?

Also known as WannaCrypt, WanaCrypt0r 2.0 and Wanna Decryptor, WannaCry is a type of ransomware that infects a computer’s hard disk drive via local area network (LAN), email, or a drive-by download. Once it has been successfully encrypted, it attempts to exploit the Server Message Block (SMB) vulnerability to pass on the virus to other computers on the internet or those within the same LAN.
March 2017, Microsoft has released a patch for the vulnerabilities that the National Security Agency (NSA) has created. WannaCry, identified to use EternalBlue exploit, is a collection of hacking tools that was created by NSA. They have lost it due to the efforts of The Shadow Brokers, a hacking group.
Microsoft has released a patch on March 14, 2017. However, those who failed to update their system became susceptible to the attack.

There are more samples of WannaCry that are wildly attacking unpatched and unsupported versions of Windows and servers.
​According to MalwareTech, the best solution that you must do is to ensure that you have patched your computers.
