Status? 1. Easy life  

Reuven The question we should really look into is, wherether White can kill. Since a black move at an instinctive point such as a would surely create a good enough division of the corners eye space, providing life.

Reuven In the following 2 diagrams, the location marked with a square serves as an intuitive and simple refutation to the attacks.

White attempt mapping (II)  
Last attempt  

Reuven Only move that's left to try is a to which Black responds with b keeping his eye-space large enough to preserve the miai of the locations marked with squares.


Safe without $$W  

Reuven At this point, it's obvious that the original group is safe as it is.
However it's interesting to add that with the presence of a stone such as $$W the groups status would be decided only when one of the players adds a move.
