BlackBerry best play on WannaCry cyberattacks in the planet

BlackBerry always has been focused on security and is already ahead of the curve as companies, cybersecurity firms, and technology experts try to stop the “ransomware” attacks-called WannaCry-that reached people in over 150 countries, mostly on Microsoft’s MSFT Windows devices over the past few days.

What is WannaCry?

On 12th May 2017, the Wanna Cry ransomware attack – one of the largest ever cyber attacks – appeared to be slowing around 24 hours after it wrecked havoc and shut down tens of thousands of computer systems across 104 countries.

The ransomware encrypted data on the computers, demanding payments of $300 to $600 to restore access. Security researchers said they observed some victims paying via the digital currency bitcoin, though they did not know what percent had given in to the extortionists.

BlackBerry recently partnered with Allied World Assurance AWH in order to further its big push into anti-hacking software and security.
