  • DigitalShadows weighs in on the most likely explanation: WannaCry is from an “unsophisticated” attacker

    I don’t use their fancy analysis technique, but the conclusion from Digital Shadows sure rings right with me:

    Though by no means definitive, we assessed that a WannaCry campaign launched by an unsophisticated cybercriminal actor was the most plausible scenario based on the information that is currently available.

    WannaCry is full of cringeworthy errors — it’s like a misguided firecracker launched by an F-22 Raptor.

    Please, if you use Windows and you haven’t patched it yet, get on the stick.
