While the world's attention has been focused on the WannaCry attacks, a few cyber-Cassandras have pointed out that there are scores, if not hundreds, of additional exploits and attacks listed in the WikiLeaks Vault 7 release. Oh, joy.
The question that arises for most IT and security professionals is when the next exploit detailed in Vault 7 will make itself known to the computing world. Some feel that the exploits could start coming with numbing regularity now that they're in the wild, while others think that they'll be used sparingly, strategically, by criminal and nation-state actors.
What do you think? Are we going to spend the next few weeks dealing with the next waves of the Vault 7 deluge or will there be a months-long (or even years-long) respite before we all have to panic anew? Security Now wants to know -- and we can think of no one better than our community to give us the final word on the matter.
If you haven't noticed over at the top of our right-hand column, we're currently conducting the first Security Now Highly Un-Scientific Poll. When you take the poll you'll see what the results are (so far) and be able to check your responses against those of your fellow community members.
Speaking of community, we're also interested in what you think about the whole Vault 7 release. Since we can't really poll on complex questions, use the comment section over on the poll to tell us your thoughts on how worried we should be -- and whether the NSA should have been stockpiling the vulnerabilities in the first place.
Polls will be a regular part of what we do here at Security Now. Let us know what you think we should ask the community -- keeping in mind that every poll will be just as scientific (and, we hope, just as interesting) as this one.
