It appears the recent WannaCry ransomware attack was only the beginning. Despite a UK researcher creating a kill switch that slowed the infection rate, we may be due for WannaCry 2.0.

The virus spread across the globe, affecting various industries including healthcare, transportation, government agencies, and more. Over one weekend, the initial attack infected over 200,000 systems in over 150 countries. Security experts warn another large scale attack could be coming.
