WannaCrypt Loves Windows 7

This seems a little too convenient as it comes on the heels of Microsoft's continued push to get people off of Windows 7 and onto the Windows 10 platform. It appears that the latest Ransomware - WannaCrypt, prefers Windows 7 over all other versions of Windows and in fact it won't even run on Windows XP. On Windows XP, the code crashes and the software can't even run.

WannaCry appears to target mainly enterprises rather than consumers: Once it infects one machine, it silently proliferates across internal networks which can connect hundreds or thousands of machines in large firms, unlike individual consumers at home.
