WannaCry’s horrendous spreading speed

Less than a minute, computers on the same LAN are infected with WannaCry malicious code without user interaction.

The Hacker News video illustrates the WannaCry virus’s “super-fast” infection. The machine on the left is the first infected device, the right machine is the device connected to the same LAN. No need for the user to interact, the virus automatically invades and encrypts the user’s files, as well as leaving the ransom messages and instructions.
