Last month on Friday, May 12th a global incident related to a ransomware variant named WannaCry broke out, targeting computers around the world. Everything from personal computers to corporate and university networks were affected by this campaign. The campaign spread across networks leveraging a recently disclosed vulnerability in Microsoft SMB service. On March 14th 2017, Microsoft released MS17-010, a security update, that addressed and patched six CVEs. Five were remote code executions and the sixth was related to information disclosure.
