35 ISPs Could Stop 70% of Current Malware Attacks

CHICAGO, IL – 17 May, 2017 – Approximately one half million US computers accessible from anywhere appear to have an unpatched vulnerability that could allow a remote attacker to take control.

The vulnerability has to do with Internet Port 445 also known as SMB and was part of the leaked NSA cyber weapons released by the Shadow Brokers and now being used as part of the Wanna Cry ransomware. 

Infections of the Wanna Cry Ransomware doubled over night from Monday to Tuesday of this week as reported on a malware tracking website.  Security Researcher and Computer Forensics Expert Lee Neubecker compiled a list of the top Internet Service Providers in the US that appear to account for the majority of vulnerable devices. 

Neubecker stated, “I realized that 35  ISPs accounted for more than 70% of the total number of easy to find vulnerable targets”.  Neubecker urges those ISPs to take prompt measures to audit and secure the vulnerable machines from further compromise.
