Hi Ronnie,

I read your news article about a "cyberattaque". The technical
information to stop WannaCry (ransomware) is incorrect. The
iuqerfsodp9ifjaposdfjhgosurijfaewrwergwea[.]com domain name is not a
bug; it is a "kill switch". There is no need to do any
"configuration DNS" change as the domain name was registered on May
12 by a person in the United Kingdom [1] identified as
"_at_MalwareTechBlog" to prevent the WannaCry from spreading.

The Microsoft Security Response Center published some guidance for
its customers. There are URLs to security updates for Windows XP and
other old versions of Windows at the bottom of the web page at
