Quick Heal Technologies Limited has detected over 48,000 MS-17- 010 Shadow Brokerexploit hits responsible for ‘WannaCry ransomware’ outbreak in India, it announced.
The top five cities with maximum detections by the WannaCry ransomware in India are Kolkata followed by Delhi, Bhubaneshwar, Pune, and Mumbai, Bureaucracy Today has learnt.
Among the attempted attacks, 60 percent were targeted towards enterprises and 40 percent towards individual customers.
“This ransomware outbreak has brought to fore the importance of robust cybersecurity solutions for individuals and businesses alike. Cybercriminals are not discriminating while attacking and spreading malware. India is getting hit hard by such attacks as India has a large number of Windows users who do not have proper security patches applied and rely on inadequate internet security. Our observation is that the attack is not focused towards any particular industry but it is widely spread across industries especially those organisations which are online and connected,” Sanjay Katkar, MD & CTO, Quick Heal Technologies Limited, said.
Many organisations and networks in over 150 countries were crippled by the recent WannaCry ransomware outbreak.
Quick Heal Technologies Limited is one of the leading providers of security software products and solutions in India.
