Microsoft has declared that the next major Windows 10 update dubbed Redstone 3, will not have SMB1 protocol. The WannaCry attacks that took down thousands of systems across the world was largely based on SMB1 exploits that were leaked by Shadow Brokers. SMB1 is a file sharing protocol that Microsoft developed in the early 90s which the company has been working to detach for a while now. In fact, Microsoft has already disabled SMB1 for internal builds of Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows Server 2016 which are currently under beta testing.
