Microsoft has come out in defence of its role in Friday's on-going global cyber-attack, criticising the role of the US National Security Agency in creating tools that were subsequently leaked and then used in Friday's attacks.

Smith said the attack provided graphic evidence about "the degree to which cybersecurity has become a shared responsibility between tech companies and customers". The other, ill-advised method is to pay the WannaCry attackers $300 in bitcoin. Companies needing to restore their operations right away likely would have turned to backups, if available, by now.
The malware is believed to make use of an NSA hacking tool called Eternal Blue that makes it easier to invade older Windows machines. "There's some truth to the idea that people are always going to hack themselves", said Dan Wire, a spokesman for security firm FireEye.

The hacking tool spreads silently between computers, shutting them down by encrypting data and then demanding a ransom of $300 to unlock them. Theft of the software was reported in April, when it was published by the Shadow Brokers, a group that has been linked to Russian Federation.
The group is clearly emboldened by its success (if you want to call it that), after releasing numerous zero-day exploits acquired from the NSA's Equation Group , after they were left on a staging server. The group provided no proof that it holds the data it claims, and it's possible that it is lying. In the wake of the massive global WannaCry ransomware attacks, worldwide governments and software vendors have begun playing the blame game.

And who would've guessed, it's still fantastic. Even though the Wii U could only handle the game at 720p, it was visually striking, and it played like a dream.

This is something that has been strangely lacking from Microsoft, but this is all set to change with Microsoft To-Do. The best part about Microsoft To-Do is it's built on Office 365, so users can expect Outlook integration when it officially launches.
Customers have been asking Microsoft for a more predictable release schedule, one that would be simple and easy to follow, the company says. Office 365 ProPlus will have its major updates at the same time. For Microsoft, though, this could mean less auspicious feature bundles, a la the Creators Update, which didn't quite pan out as promised . Previously, the Windows 10 platform benefited from two or three updates annually.
