    Andy Taylor shares his thoughts on the Petya cyber attack

    By: Andy Taylor - Lead Cyber Assessor - APMG International on: 29/06/2017
    This attack seems at first glance to be very similar to the recent Wannacry attack that had such a serious effect on the NHS amongst other victims. It seems to utilise similar code including some elements such as the EternalBlue exploit disclosed through Shadow Brokers. It also uses similar tactics to try and spread from one infected area to infect other connected systems. Where it appears to differ is in that it seems to be more about stealing credentials and using these than it is about making money for the criminals.
