Exclamation Fears still looming over WanaCry Ransomware cyber attack

The cyberattack on May 12th, encrypting computer files in over 230000 computers in business, hospitals, governments, and homes in 150 countries is still cause for alarm to many.

Whether this incident will repeat itself is in question, but taking precautionary measures are likely advisable, especially to business owners & hospitals with any systems than have anything prior to Windows 10.

Yeah, I think this is horrible, but I find it amazing that a twenty-two-year-old from the UK managed to put a killswitch on it. I find it ironic that I saw an episode of Chicago Med that talked about this very subject and here it is happening.
