Vulnerability across company's systems exploited by malware 'Wannacry'

Synopsis

In May 2017, the ransomware targeted businesses in more than 150 countries who were running outdated Windows software and locked down their systems. The hackers behind the attack demanded money to unlock files.

More than 300,000 machines were hit across numerous industries, including healthcare and car companies. The infections were so bad that, in an unusual move, Microsoft released a patch for Windows systems that it had stopped updating.
