Customer Advisories are intended to inform you of the possibility of a situation occurring at system installations, and the identified resolution. Schneider Electric recommends that our customers consider taking action to help prevent occurrence of the identified situation during your production process.

 Systems Affected:  Microsoft Windows operating systems

SITUATION

Beginning early on Friday, May 12th, a ransomware variant using the EternalBlue exploit for Microsoft Windows, began spreading rapidly, locking down businesses and users in more than ninety countries. Tens of thousands of instances of the malware have been detected.  This new ransomware variant known as WannaCry, WCry, WannaCrypt, or Wanna Decryptor, targets and exploits a previously known Microsoft SMB vulnerability.

Microsoft® released a security update which addresses the vulnerability that these attacks are exploiting (Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010).  This patch was made available on the Global Customer Support for Foxboro and Triconex website for the April Monthly Rollup of Schneider Electric approved Microsoft® Security Patches.  

SYMPTOMS
