The WannaCry ransomware outbreak a week ago could well have been an exploratory run before something much more devastating, according to a senior figure in the anti-malware industry.
Microsoft appears to have been unaware last week of a fact that security researchers have discovered: nearly all the victims of the the WannaCry ransomware attack were Windows 7 machines, with XP machines mostly crashing before the malware gained a foothold.
Current and former NSA officials say the agency informed Microsoft about the theft of the exploit named EternalBlue after learning of it, making it possible for the Redmond software giant to issue a patch for it in March. The exploit was used in the WannaCry ransomware attacks over last weekend.
