1) Does Avast protect against this ransomware?
2) Does is require the victim to download some kind of file, or can it infect a device even without that?

Having this patch makes one immune to the threat, or it just reduces the chances of getting it?

But no-one here saw a link with the new positioning of Microsoft in the market. Recent blocking of torrenting, no more right to tinker (resource hacking), making the switch to linux harder: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Extensible_Firmware_Interface#Secure_boot_criticism

First they had to fear the anti-monopoly EU measures that guaranteed  browser choice for you end-user. Now they come with more of the same or you have to pay for the Premium version. The globalists dictating on your choice, your freedom of information.
All platforms are gonna look the same like on an android and not everyone can afford a Mac or Premium Windows.

Just a couple more of these NSA inspired cybercriminal ransomeware attacks and they can further their agenda(s) much easier.
Dumb down the masses and feed them more of the same, away with Modern Renaissance, hello back Dark Feudal Middle Ages.
Time for the Rise of Dajjal  :o

Just stumbled unto this info online: Hi,

Just to have it stopped before anything can do it's work:
In powershell and leave powershell open:
https://gist.github.com/N3mes1s/afda0da98f6a0c63ec4a3d296d399636

$createdNew = $False;
$mutex = New-Object -TypeName System.Threading.Mutex($true, "MsWinZonesCacheCounterMutexA", [ref]$createdNew);

It blocks the process that encrypts.

For good explanation of how it works see this

I have to say that trying to block individual IPs which are likely to be constantly changing is like trying to shoot a moving target. Unless there is some form of updated browser add-on, trying to update these manually is a bit crazy.

Hi DavidR,

Yes, know there are other ways to skin this proverbial animal, but as I stumbled upon the IP blocking by DShield, I would not like to have the info withheld from our users, just to be complete on the Wannacry related info and some here may appreciate this info. I know some of our good friends on these forums  here are into IP blocking. That's all and why.

Going over the Ooniprobe censorship and blocking reported IPs:
http://money.cnn.com/2017/02/08/technology/ooniprobe-censorship-mobile-app/ 

I stumbled upon this in Germany:
https://explorer.ooni.torproject.org/measurement/20170520T002129Z_AS680_bOmWCjhuoFhTdDyTbkO5o7QsVTzozuSQLhW0RebwGY2GsqStrN?input=128.31.0.39:9131

setting out clearly that the initial NSA tools were being positioned against tor-users, read also this:

https://security.stackexchange.com/questions/42751/attack-on-tor-with-stolen-private-keys-of-main-nodes

See also: https://otx.alienvault.com/indicator/ip/128.31.0.39/http://www.malware-traffic-analysis.net/2015/09/18/index.html
and this report: http://trapx.com/wannacry-thoughts-and-threat-intelligence/  (info credits for links by, Moshe Ben Simon, VP ofServices and TrapX Labs, StackOverflow's trankvilezator on insider NSA attacks against the general public's infrastructure.

Now after this has been going on for 5 years, we all should be aware what the proliferation of such official guv malware used in these actions has brought us all: threats and threats and new threats. These spooks have turned the Interwebs in an even more insecure place for all users.

Hi bob3160,

Apparently mankind does not learn from history. This should never have happened after what we remember of the Blaster disaster.
It still did. There were people that were willingly sitting on exploits, they better had shared with the community to be patched.
And I asume also in the AV industry there is insecurity that has not been shared with those it should have been shared with.
