But mostly it is being observed that to attack and Windows OS, the SMB1.0/CIFS File Sharing exploit is being used. The simplest prevention would be to disable the SMB1.0/CIFS File Sharing Feature from Windows OS itself. The procedure would be:

For client operating systems:

Open Control Panel, click Programs, and then click Turn Windows features on or off.

In the Windows Features window, clear the SMB1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support checkbox, and then click OK to close the window.

Restart the system.

For server operating systems:

Open Server Manager and then click the Manage menu and select Remove Roles and Features.

In the Features window, clear the SMB1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support check box, and then click OK to close the window.
