Well, you will be shocked to know that the ‘EternalRocks’ ransomware is more dangerous than WannaCry and it is potentially difficult to fight. According to the reports from Fortune, the ransomware uses NSA tool called ‘EternalBlue’ for proliferation.

The report also added “…it also uses six other NSA tools, with names like EternalChampion, EternalRomance, and DoublePulsar (which is also part of WannaCry),”

The current form of ‘EternalRocks’ doesn’t have any malicious components. It doesn’t lock or encrypt users file. However, it leaves computers exposed to remote commands that could ‘weaponise’ the infection anytime.

The reason why security researchers are calling it more dangerous than WannaCry is because it doesn’t have any ‘Kill Switch’ or you can say weakness.
