Corporations across the globe could have prevented the huge impact of the WannaCry and NotPetya Ransomware attacks months before the virus was released had they patched their Windows Operating system with the security patches published by Microsoft – released months before the attacks. All but a small percentage of “zero-day” vulnerabilities (zero-day vulnerability is a software security flaw that is known to the software vendor but doesn’t have a patch in place to fix the flaw) – that is nearly 90% of vulnerabilities could be avoided by patching immediately the patches are made available by the manufacturer.
