How is WannaCry spread?

While WannaCry can spread itself across an organization’s networks by exploiting a vulnerability, the initial means of infection—how the first computer in an organization is infected—remains unconfirmed. Symantec has seen some cases of WannaCry being hosted on malicious websites, but these appear to be copycat attacks, unrelated to the original attacks.

I have seen lots of things being blamed on Brexit, but this is bloody ridiculous.

The Brexit vote was almost a year ago and almost anything malware related is going to go up year on year, crazy.

Brexit and Trump, the blame for everything that's wrong in this world.
If you don't believe me just read the newspaper or look at the news. :)
