    I was given a brand new Win 10 work laptop last week it still had SMB v1.0 enabled.

    Wondering if this is only an issue in the US.

    Nope. Worldwide. SMB v1 is insecure and led to the Wannacry ransomware. Wannacry is supposed to be contained now but the vulnerability is still in SMB v1. I personally and professionally would not want to be responsible for opening up a customer network to data loss. Some IT companies are facing lawsuits for not disabling SMB v1 on their customers networks before they had their data hijacked. Don't want to join that crowd.

    All I know is 99% of PC’s I look at still have SMB v1.0 enabled.

    Like I say mostly an issue in the USA due to paranoia about as you saw lawsuits.

    We don’t have the same “where theres a blame there’s a claim” culture in the UK.

    But for me, even without the lawsuit threat, I wouldn't want to be the guy that opened that door.

    If their IT wants to enable SMB v1, fine by me.

    The advice being given here is to go into the settings of a PC where SMB v1 is disabled (made secure) and to re-enable SMB v1 (make insecure).

    I'm not doing it and I won't recommend doing it.
