WannaCry may be ported for Windows 10

by Igor Mikhaylov2017-07-24

Rene Milman wrote an article about how the latest Microsoft operating system could be infected with ransomware. Malicious can on TCP scan 445 port (Server Message Block / SMB) and spread like a worm, attacking hosts and encrypting the files that are on them. After that, he wants to list some number of bitcoyans for decryption.


While Windows 10 avoided infection by WannaCry last month, security researchers at RiskSense have shown how the malware could be ported to the OS and infect it. There was a huge work in this area and the idea was to help prevent future attacks, and not give hackers information about how to compromise Windows 10.
