He says there's a case isolated one. But many attempts with suspicious
mails.

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.

Regards,
S. Moonesamy
