The WannaCry ransomware has wreaked havoc through Windows PCs across the world. The attack that began surfacing last week has reportedly hit over 2,00,000 systems spread in over 150 countries, including India.

However, India being less inclined towards digital services might have actually worked in its favour. Various security experts that The Quint spoke to feel the impact of WannaCry ransomware in India has been vaguely reported.
