Microsoft President, Brad Smith, posted a blog looking at the broader implications of the malicious WannaCrypt software attack that took place over the last week.
This Article talks about Microsoft's committment to ensure protection of customers and talks about steps Microsoft took to address WannaCrypt. Also, this attack highlights the degree to which cybersecurity has become a shared responsibility between tech companies and customers. Finally, this article also highlights that this attack provides yet another example of why the stockpiling of vulnerabilities by governments is such a problem, and calls for an action to establish new “Digital Geneva Convention” to govern these issues, including a new requirement for governments to report vulnerabilities to vendors, rather than stockpile, sell, or exploit them.
We need your support to communicate to our mutual customers on Microsoft's committment to protection of customers, and work together to protect our customers against cybersecurity attacks.
