EternalRocks worse than WannaCry May 23rd 2017 J W Stuart
Why EternalRocks may be bigger and worse than WannaCry
WannaCry used only two of the SMB exploit tools: ETERNALBLUE and DOUBLEPULSAR. EternalRocks leverages seven NSA SMB exploit tools to locate vulnerable systems: •ETERNALBLUE •DOUBLEPULSAR •ETERNALCHAMPION •ETERNALROMANCE •ETERNALSYNERGY •SMBTOUCH •ARCHITOUCH
"All of the vulnerabilities exploited by the EternalRocks worm were patched by Microsoft earlier this year as part of MS17-010."
Note: XP and Vista have patches avaialbe as well (Check home page for www.pagestart.com by clicking on th "Home" tab located at the top of this article.
"The majority of the tools exploit vulnerabilities with standard file sharing technology used by PCs called Microsoft Windows Server Message Block, which is how WannaCry spread so quickly without being noticed. Microsoft patched these vulnerabilities in March, but many outdated computers remain at risk."
