After more than 200,000 computers were damaged around the world and a ransom of tens of thousands of dollars was paid, a young security researcher managed to stop the WannaCry ransom program,
WannaCry 2.0 began to spread to complement the first edition of the first edition, which has spread in 99 countries around the world and infected the computers of companies, banks, hospitals, airports and several vital facilities.
A 22-year-old young security researcher mistakenly managed to stop malicious software by registering a domain name that she used in her work:
Hxxp: // [.] Iuqerfsodp9ifjaposdfjhgosurijfaewrwergwea [.] Com
Costin Raiu, head of research and analysis at Kaspersky, said that as of last Friday, a new version of the same ransom software that can not be disabled via the domain name mentioned above has emerged.
He warned of a new wave of attacks, through which the ransom-based software will be released, with no new security solution available.
If you have not installed the previous software, it is best to take the necessary precautions by downloading and installing the latest security updates available for Windows, as well as removing the check mark next to the SMB1 option that can be accessed when you search for Turn Windows features on or off and then restart.
