“Please Patch Your Windows. Pretty Please?” – Microsoft

Do you remember WannaCry? Two years ago, it was arguably the most destructive cyberworm in history — shutting down hospitals, banks, transportation and shipping companies. Perhaps one of the most baffling things of all, though, is the fact that WannaCry didn’t exist until two months AFTER Microsoft had already released a patch that would fix the very vulnerability the worm took advantage of.
