Ross Schulman wrote for the New York Daily News about the collective failure that led to the global WCRY ransomware attack.

There is a real temptation to point fingers in the wake of the global "WCRY" (or "wanna cry") ransomware attack that over the last few days has crippled organizations from the UK's National Health Service to FedEx.
