At the moment it is believed that this protocol is very outdated, which eventually led to the fact that it became a vulnerable area in the operating system through which it is possible to penetrate very powerful viruses that in 2017 were remembered by the entire world computer community under the names : Wanna Cry, Petya, Satan and the like.

All of the above viruses in their time were focused on getting into the Windows operating system and blocking its operability. Thus, any user's computer that was hostage to a virus attack was almost 100% paralyzed, and at the same time, the virus software extorted money from a computer host in very large amounts from $ 100 to $ 300. In some cases, the extortion was much higher!

It's clear that when faced with this kind of extortion most of the average users were reinstalling the operating system, but the users whose computers are working and tied to a particular company, company, etc., could not allow the system to be reinstalled, and therefore they either paid , or tried to find ways to deactivate the virus software.
