Re: SMB shares exposed to the internet. Just....... Why?

Rumour has it this was spread over the NHS N3 network, hence the wide spread infection for the NHS. Hence why SMB might have been more open for sharing data, as N3 is supposed to be a secure network (Still no excuse I agree!). However it must have got in somewhere initially. Again, rumour has it the telco was at fault. AC as I'm speculating.....
