Update: Global Cyber Attack Slows

Reuters news agency reports a global cyber attack launched Friday using spying tools believed to be developed by the US National Security Agency infected tens of thousands of computers in 104 countries. The NSA spy code known as “Eternal Blue” was made available last month by the Shadow Brokers hackers group. According to the report, some experts said the threat had receded for now as researchers try to decrypt infected computers and recover access to victims’ files.
