The CEO of Audax Cybersecurity, Mr.Kasimis Theofanis, was interviewed on SKAI's main newscast and the respected journalist Mr.Stavros Ioannidis, about the cyber-attacks that took place around the globe resulting in the infection of 99+ countries and 200,000 machines.

A wave of cyber attacks on a global scale occurred on Friday 12 May 2017.

The WannaCry virus hit computers in 16 hospitals in the UK, the telecoms company Telefonica in Spain, Gas Natural, the electricity company Iberdrola, while more than 50,000 cases were reported in 74 countries.

WanaCrypt0r 2.0 exploits a Windows vulnerability, also known as EternalBlue, which was exploited by intelligence agencies. Once it infiltrates a network, it reproduces itself and spreads to other computers.

It holds computers hostage and in order to free them and prevent the data from being deleted, it demands a ransom in Bitcoin.
