    So, recently WannaCry ransomware has spread crazy fast. I've been in charge of preventing my schools servers from it.

    I've been able to prevent this easily, by closing ports 135 and 445. But I want a copy of it to personally see what is going on in the ransomware and how it is being encrypted.

    From what I've heard, it is using RSA-2048 encryption, but I haven't seen so myself.

    WannaCey is also just another reason that Linux is infinitely better than Windows.

    Anyone, either share opinions or info on WannaCry or supply me with a download link!

    Thank you!

    At this age, maybe none of em are effective.

    Information @ digicert.com/TimeTravel/math.htm on Just How Strong is 2048-bit SSL Certificate Encryption?

    Even at Brute force it still takes infinitely longer
    One way or another this occurrence is inevitable in the early era of the digital age.
