Everyone has heard about the Eternalblue exploit that was been running wild in late 2017.
This exploit was used to spread ransomware around the world and it caused huge frustration, costs and overall panic in the workplace. Even popular TV shows like The Good Wife got scammed with ransomware. All this because a little SMB v1 exploit was being leveraged to gain entry and encrypt files.
Not safe yet
So, it's June 2018 , and you would assume that people have patched and updated their computers and so we are safe now.
Unfortunately, it’s a daily occurrence here at GTconsult that our A-Team Protection
team have found that the easiest and most abundant exploit is still the Eternalblue SMB v1 hack.
A lot of our clients still have old 2003 legacy machines that cannot be retired due to some line of business system that cannot be upgraded or moved. In this case, we have a Windows Server 2003 3790 Service Pack 2 vulnerable machine.
