Microsoft dilató la difusión gratuita del correctivo de WannaCry

Cómo una fisura en Windows fue el origen del ciberataque de alcance mundial Microsoft dilató la difusión gratuita del correctivo de WannaCry
Montez Delgado | 20 May, 2017, 01:28

El ciberataque que se pronunció de escala mundial para este día, ha comenzado a tener sus primeras víctimas en Asia y Oceanía, pero no fue de las dimensiones que se esperaban.

Microsoft advirtió a los Gobiernos por la "acumulación de vulnerabilidades" en sus sistemas y culpó a la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional estadounidense (NSA) por haber almacenado las fallas detectadas en los sistemas operativos que, a su vez, fueron usados por los autores del virus WannaCry, todavía no identificados.

Microsoft dijo que la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional (NSA) de Estados Unidos tiene algo de responsabilidad, debido a que los ciberatacantes utilizaron una falla de alguna versión de Windows descubierta por esta agencia de inteligencia.

El ataque cibernético bloqueó desde el viernes el acceso a los sistemas informáticos de 200 mil computadoras de instituciones estatales y privadas en 150 países.

Jadhav 'has been denied the right to be defended by a legal counsel of his choice, ' Mittal said at the start of day-long hearing. In Germany versus the US, Salve said, the court held that execution of a German national was "an irreparable damage to justice".

Sobre el origen del fallo en Windows que el software maligno aprovecha, el presidente de Microsoft, Brad Smith, ha alertado de que el acopio de vulnerabilidades informáticas por parte de los gobiernos se ha convertido en un patrón emergente que causa daños generalizados cuando la información se filtra, y ha pedido a las autoridades ver lo ocurrido como una "llamada de atención". Y este reciente ataque representa un vínculo completamente involuntario pero desconcertante entre las dos formas más graves de amenazas de ciberseguridad en el mundo actual: "la acción del Estado-nación y la acción criminal organizada".

"Hemos visto aparecer en WikiLeaks vulnerabilidades almacenadas por la CIA, y ahora esta vulnerabilidad robada a la NSA ha afectado a clientes en todo el mundo", recordó.

El presidente de Microsoft urgió a la 'acción colectiva' y al trabajo en común del sector tecnológico, los clientes y los gobiernos para generar una mayor protección frente a ciberataques. "Hay que adoptar en el ciberespacio las mismas reglas aplicadas a las armas en el mundo físico", dijo Smith, para quien "este ataque es un nuevo ejemplo de por qué es tan problemático que los gobiernos acumulen vulnerabilidades".

La firma tecnológica tiene 3.500 ingenieros de seguridad en su plantilla.
