It’s understandable that people should look for someone to blame after a malware outbreak as significant as WannaCry.
Is it the fault for the NSA for discovering a security vulnerability in Microsoft’s code, and not telling Microsoft at the time? Can we blame Microsoft for shipping buggy code in the first place? Are the mysterious Shadow Brokers hacking group responsible for WannaCry, because they stole details of the exploit the NSA built to take advantage of the Microsoft flaw? Should we point fingers at the organisations who failed to patch their systems in advance of the attack?
