The WannaCrypt malware that hit computer networks all over the globe last Friday is an alarm signal for the international society. Brad Smith, the Microsoft’s president and chief legal officer posted that on his blog.

‘We should take from this recent attack a renewed determination for more urgent collective action. We need the tech sector, customers, and governments to work together to protect against cybersecurity attacks. More action is needed, and it’s needed now. In this sense, the WannaCrypt attack is a wake-up call for all of us. We recognize our responsibility to help answer this call, and Microsoft is committed to doing its part’.

Rob Wainwright, the Europol director reported that over 200,000 individuals and companies suffered from the attack in 150 countries across the globe.
