“EternalRocks” Is The Next NSA Inspired Malware That May Make Life Miserable For You

Having just got over the ransomware known as “WannaCry” which caused global havoc just over a couple of weeks ago, we now have something new to worry about. Meet “EternalRocks” which like “WannaCry” utilizes exploits found by and acquired from the NSA, but is far more dangerous according to this as it uses seven NSA sourced exploits to the two that “WannaCry” used. Antivirus and security company Symantec already has a write up about this new threat, which means that their products likely have countermeasures for it. Other companies are likely to follow suit as this is a clear and present danger. But at least it’s one that people see coming.
