The news article mentions that: "il y a eu des
tentatives d’attaques sur des compagnies
Maurice". It is mentioned, in the audio
interview, that the virus [WannaCry] can
propagate by email. There hasn't been any
confirmed reports (outside Mauritius) of a
WannaCry infection by email. As for "des
tentatives d'attaques", nobody in Mauritius has
been able to provide any evidence of those attacks.

I agree that it is not possible to study the
impact of WannaCry in Mauritius. It is also not
possible to study the spread of WannaCry as
CERT-MU has not provided any information about
any ransomware infection. There is a whitepaper
from CERT-MU which is a copy and paste of
information which was published on the web or
Twitter around four or five days ago.
