WannaCry Ransomware

WannaCry Ransomware

The WannaCry exploits a specific vulnerability in Microsoft Windows Server SMB services identified in Microsoft bulletin MS17-010 released on March 14, 2017. The same security bulletin also provided the patches required to resolve and close the vulnerability. WannaCry exploits this vulnerability to enable remote execution of arbitrary code on affected computers by attacking vulnerable Windows Servers using unpatched SMB services running on port 445.

SOTI MobiControl Cloud does not use SMB and therefore disables SMB and blocks port 445. This effectively immunizes SOTI MobiControl Cloud systems from the WannaCry ransomware. SOTI Inc. Administrators have also thoroughly reviewed all SOTI Inc. infrastructure and determined all systems have the required from MS17-010 installed.
