Ransomware Alert: WCRY (WannaCry) New Detection Tool

Over the weekend, there has been an unprecedented spate of ransomware infections hitting a number of organisations across various industries around the world.

The culprit: the WannaCry/WCRY ransomware.

Prior to this most ransomware in Australia was distributed by;

(i) spam,

(ii) on the web using exploit kits or

(iii) by RDP brute force.

The latest outbreak of WannaCry would initially get into an organisation using a phishing email, and then spread through an organisation in a worm-like way using a vulnerability in Windows (recently disclosed Microsoft vulnerability (MS17-010 – "EternalBlue") associated with the Shadow Brokers tools release).

How can our customers find out if their organisation is protected? Trend Micro offers a free tool that can co-exist with other Anti-Virus programs to help organisations identify the gaps in their existing endpoint protection solution.
