Now the group has said that if they found anyone who would is ready to buy they would also exploit the new browsers, Windows 10 OS or any other money transfer system.
They promises: “More details in June”

The ransomware Attack was because of the existing Windows XP systems throughout the world which had been announced unsupported by Microsoft after 2014. According to reports in British media, “approximately 90 percent of care facilities in the U.K.’s National Health Service are still using Windows XP.”

Spokesperson from Microsoft has already said that they will be preparing a response for this claim from the hacking group. Microsoft had actually made a patch for this WannaCry vulnerability in March 2017 and rolled it to users but not many installed it.
