Total number of Scans

Tool scanned almost 8 million IPs and France is the winner with 1.5 million scans, still a majority of hosts (53.82%)  still have SMBv1 enabled but most of them applied MS17-010 patch.

Microsoft recommends users to move for v2 or v3, newer and more secure versions of the protocol. 1 out of 9 hosts in a network is vulnerable to EternalBlue says EladErez.

Actually, the results are higher if the scan performed in local environments then there is no statistics, some users may set statistics disabled.
