WannaCry Attacks Again…
It has been over a month since the world was introduced to WannaCry ransomware. However, even with increased awareness and preventative options in place, businesses are still being effected. A Honda plant in Japan was the most recent victim of the WannaCry epidemic. On June 18, 2017, the plant had to temporarily shut down operations while they fixed their computers after an apparent ransomware attack took place.
Within 24 hours the plant was back to full operations. However, this begs the question — why were they infected to begin with? With WannaCry being “old news” to antivirus programs, all of them should know to block the malware. How did it sneak through? Did the plant even have a security solution in place? It’s doubtful that an organization of that size would fail to protect its data with an adequate security program. Although, that is clearly the case.
