Eternal Blues – a free EternalBlue vulnerability scanner

So, I came across this new tool that scans for vulnerability on your network against EternalBlue (the exploited tool used as a framework for many, if not most, of the well-known Ransomwares around)  called EternalBlues.exe developed by Elad Erez.


Here are some tips from Elad before running the tool:


  • If you’re about to run it in your working environment, please update the IT/Security team in advance. You don’t want to cause (IDS/IPS/AV) false alarms
  • If vulnerable systems were found – please take a Windows update asap
  • For god sake, please disable SMBv1 already. Whether your systems are patched or not. This protocol was written over 3 decades ago…!
  • If you would like to enjoy the tool but disallow sending anonymous statistics , disable access to Elad’s website
