You may have heard of a security breach that occurred on April 14, 2017 in which a hacking group made a collection of highly classified tools used by the National Security Agency (NSA) public online. Anyone can easily download and use the tools which contain information on vulnerabilities in Windows computers and servers. This affects millions of non-updated machines and grants hackers system-level access into servers. The sophistication of the tool allows inexperienced hackers to simply type a target and run the attack. Internet scans reveal millions of vulnerable systems and the point-and-click simplicity of the tool leaves many at risk.
Nth Generation is offering a complimentary assessment to answer two questions:
• Are you vulnerable to this new attack?
• Are your systems currently infected?
Recent events of WannaCry malware are based on this vulnerability. A Microsoft update was released on March 14 that fixed this vulnerability; however, Windows XP, which Microsoft stopped supporting in 2014, and computers that did not install the recent patch were left exposed to WannaCry malware.
When infected by WannaCry, machines can be encrypted and propagate ransomware. Many machines are being affected externally even though firewalls should block Internet Facing systems.
Microsoft has released patches for unsupported operating systems including Windows XP, and Server 2003. These details can be found here.
Not only does this scan detect the threat, it also indicates compromise and potential configuration issues.
