WannaCry targeted a vulnerability for which a patch had been available for months. Shame on them. But Petya followed a month later and targeted the exact same vulnerability. And millions of devices were still affected. So, shame on us. [Read More]

In my previous article, I raised a red flag about the diminishing practical returns of “mom and pop” threat research as a proxy for mitigating vulnerabilities and bad consequences. Threat assessment is often both difficult and incomplete, and sometimes best left to those who have timely access to the best possible data (and the even then, left to those with the military and intelligence means to act on it).
