WannaCry (also known as WanaCrypt0r or WannaCrypt) is a massive ransomware attack that has shut down a number of hospitals in the National Health Service (NHS) system.  The attack affects versions of the Windows operating system before Windows 10.

If you are a SonicWall customer and utilizing the Gateway Security Services, your SonicWall firewall has been protecting your network from this ransomware since April 20, 2017.

To help protect your organization, ensure your next-generation firewall has an active gateway security subscription to receive automatic protection from ransomware attacks such as WannaCry. You also want to make sure your SonicWall email security subscriptions are active, since attacks like this often come into your organization via email.
