"WannaCry" Ransomware Attack Causes Disruption Globally - with the worst yet to come

Ben Pena | 18 Мая, 2017, 22:48

The cyber attack had a limited impact on some of the x-ray facilities at the hospital, which were temporarily reduced while the machines were repaired. The Scottish Government, in the NHS, invests round about £100m a year.

They have not confirmed which surgery was affected.

"The vast majority of patients have noticed no difference". "The individual or individuals responsible for this aren't very sophisticated".

Dr Helen Stokes-Lampard, chair of the RCGP, said the attacks, combined with precautionary measures, have had an "extensive impact" on GP practices, some of which are likely to struggle.

The UK's National Crime Agency's Oliver Gower said: "Cyber criminals may believe they are anonymous but we will use all the tools at our disposal to bring them to justice".

Ciaran Martin, chief executive of the National Cyber Security Centre, has warned there could be a fresh wave of victims on Monday.

"We haven't fully dodged this bullet at all until we're patched against the vulnerability itself", Kalember said.

"We're not talking about a government organisation or a hospital or anything like that".

"The message to patients is clear: the NHS is open for business".

It comes as NHS organisations across the country are braced for a possible recurrence of Friday's cyberattack as staff return to work.

Britain's official emergency committee, known as Cobra, met in London on Saturday afternoon to discuss the cyber-attack that has caused widespread disruption to the country's National Health Service (NHS).

The NHS was hit here in the United Kingdom, but within 48 hours the majority of machines affected were back in operation.

"In particular, making sure that our data is properly backed up and making sure that we are using the software patches, the anti-virus patches, that are sent out regularly by manufacturers". Here, you'll find information on how to apply a security patch.

Microsoft called the incident a "wake-up" call for governments and customers to take security seriously, but in a letter to the Times Sir David Omand, GCHQ director from 1996 to 1997, pins the blame squarely on the technology firm for failing to maintain support for its ageing Windows XP platform.

Wallace said the government used to contract for computer services across the entire NHS but that in 2007 that was stopped and left to the individual trusts.

MalwareTech who wishes to remain anonymous, has said that they prevented more than 100,000 computers across the world from being targeted with a virus.

"As cybercriminals become more sophisticated, there is simply no way for customers to protect themselves against threats unless they update their systems", Smith wrote.

"This guidance was also reissued on Friday following the emergence of this issue".

Shadow health secretary Jon Ashworth told Sky News Labour would spend £5bn improving the health service's IT systems - as part of a "new deal for the NHS".

However Ms Rudd strongly denied warnings had been ignored. "What we don't do in our NHS is micromanage it from the desk".
