The Confessions of Marcus Hutchins, the Hacker Who Saved the Internet | WIRED

Reading about the WannaCry worm's global depredations and "heroic lone hacker figures it out", what occurred to me was "where was the NSA in all this?" After all it was their leaked malware, based on multiple 0-day exploits they'd found and decided not to share with Microsoft so they could be patched, which led directly to WannaCry. Anyone? Bueller?
