What is WannaCry?
WannaCry, also referred to as WannaCrypt or WCrypt, encrypts data files and demands users to pay a ransom in bitcoins. The ransom note received indicates that the payment amount will double after three days and if payment is not received within seven days, the encrypted files will be permanently deleted.
