Some articles point to the agency creating exploits for flaws in the OS and then sitting on them for future use without advising the manufacturer, in this case MS, about the vulnerability of their system. Either way there is going to be some major finger pointing in the coming weeks as the story unfolds and hopefully the truth will come out. Will major changes come out of this, from IT best practices to legal accountability most certainly imho. The days of blaming crooks for everything and avoiding any responsibility need to come to an end, if you leave the door to your house wide open and go on vacation who should you blame when you come back to find out the house has been ransacked? You will definitely get an argument from your insurance company.
