The worldwide ransomware attack over the weekend was halted before it could cause the global shutdown many feared.

The biggest question in the aftermath: Did the U.S. simply dodge a bullet?

Peter Bamber, the vice president at Security Management Partners, said it doesn’t really matter either way.

“Dodging a bullet?” he asked. “The guns are loaded — they are still shooting; that’s the way I look at it. They are going to come right back at us with this. They’ll just tweak it a bit.”

In the case of one firm, the attacks took place over a 94 day period starting in March of 2015, and resulted in the hackers stealing around seven gigabytes of data, according to information obtained by Fortune. That figure would typically amount to tens or hundreds of thousands of emails.
