“Why? The largest ransomware attack in history is currently attacking Windows Operating Systems and had already infected over 114,000 Windows systems worldwide since the last 24 hours.
“The attack, known as WannaCrypt or WannaCry, spreads like a worm by leveraging on a Windows vulnerability. Once the computer is infected, WannaCry unlocks the computers and requires victims to pay $300 in Bitcoins to take back the control of their systems, along with a threat to double the price to $600. There is even no guarantee of getting your files back even after paying the ransom.
