CYBER SECURITY CASE STUDY 2 Abstract This paper examines the cyber-attack Wannacry. Hackers stole a National Security Agency tool and released it to the public. The tool was called EternalBlue and was comprised of a Windows Server Message Block (SMB) vulnerability. The hacker exploit allowed them to gain access to computers and digital devices and infect it with ransomware. Each infected computer was locked unless a $300 bitcoin ransom was paid. A kill switch was discovered and shut down the spread of the WannaCry infection. Windows also put out a patch to protect computers from further incident. Keywords: Wannacry, EternalBlue, National Security Angeny, Bitcoin

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
