We pull the teeth out of WannaCry in a live demo
In our October 13, 2021 webinar with storage software pro Open-E, we’ll show how to render ransomware harmless.
Live demo: Infection and Cleanup from the WannaCry Ransomware
Full supply even with WannaCry
– thanks to JovianDSS from Open-E
In spring 2017, an extortion Trojan horse sent the IT world into a frenzy: WannaCry spread across the globe in a widespread cyberattack. Over 200,000 computers were infected. The malware, based on the EternalBlue exploit, encrypted documents, images, videos and audio files with a 2048-bit RSA key via the SMBv1 protocol. The files left behind with the extension .WNCRY were then unreadable.
A ransom in the form of Bitcoins should be paid for decryption. Moreover, regardless of the financial damage, it was uncertain whether the data would actually be readable again after the payment. Added to this were the costs of interrupting ongoing operations and the damage to the company’s reputation, which should not be underestimated.
In short, a nightmare for anyone affected.
System respawn after infection in a live demo
Together with Open-E we show in a live demo the process of this IT-supergate, as well as how to effectively counter these malware with JovianDSS. To do this, we intentionally infect the demo systems with the WannaCry network worm and roll it back to its original state.
