Security experts find clues to ransomware worm’s lingering risks | Reuters

Two-thirds of those caught up in the past week’s global ransomware attack were running Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system without the latest security updates, a survey for Reuters by security ratings firm BitSight found.Researchers are struggling to try to find early traces of WannaCry, which remains an active threat in hardest-hit China and Russia, believing that identifying “patient zero” could help catch its criminal authors.They are having more luck dissecting flaws that limited its spread.Security experts warn that while computers at more than 300,000 internet addresses were hit by the ransomware strain, further attacks that fix weaknesses in WannaCry will follow that hit larger numbers of users, with more devastating consequences.”Some organizations just aren’t aware of the risks; some don’t want to risk interrupting important business processes; sometimes they are short-staffed,” said Ziv Mador, vice president of security research at Israel’s SpiderLabs Trustwave.

More malware is making the rounds — but this time it’s invisible – May. 18, 2017

There’s another strain of malware infecting computers, but this one you can’t see.Instead of a red ransom note — the calling card of the massive WannaCry infection — this newly-discovered malware isn’t noticeable, beyond making a computer run more slowly than usual.Called “Adylkuzz,” the malware leverages the same hole in old Windows software used to spread WannaCry. But this attack operates in the background of computers, installing a “miner” to generate the cryptocurrency called Monero. Cryptocurrency is digital money, which is generated by computing power — the more power you have, the more currency you’re able to “mine.”And it makes one aspect of the hacking threat quite clear: Cyberattacks aren’t always flashy ransomware that makes itself known.The Adylkuzz malware was discovered by the security firm Proofpoint while it was investigating WannaCry, which infected 300,000 machines in 150 countries last weekend. WannaCry spread using a Windows exploit leaked in April (which Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30) released a patch for in March) that believed to belong to the NSA.
