Ransomware wake-up call for businesses around the globe

The fallout from the WannaCry ransomware attack will likely reach into the billions of dollars according to many estimates.  The malware attack largely targeted older Windows XP and some Windows 8 systems along with unpatched newer systems that were within many of the affected businesses.  Many of the affected organizations were continuing to run some legacy application that could not run on a newer version of Windows.  This of course is a game of risk roulette considering microsoft stopped activly supporting these older systems.  WannaCry demanded a relatively small amount of money to recover your information but the hit to the reputation of the organizations that fell victim to WannaCry far exceeds any monetary value.
