Well, here we are as all members InfoSec community warned. The perfect storm of conditions has led to the largest ransomware attack in history. Over the weekend, according to The Hacker News, 99 countries and 200,000+ machines came under attack from WannaCry (as well as offshoots of it like WanaCrypt0r 2.0). This ransomware is based on the code in the leaked NSA malware I reported on and did an extensive interview on TechGenix Xtreme discussing it.

I believe your article is well researched and explains WannaCry pretty well. There are a few things that you've forgot but still, the presentation is fine.
