Greetings,

The Wanna Cry Ransomware uses a flaw in Microsoft, which was named "Eternal Blue". As long as you have all Windows updates installed, you are safe because Microsoft pushed out a security update back in March of this year to protect against this flaw in Windows.

In short, as long as you are updated with Windows update, you are in the clear.
