Concerns over ransomware as working week resumes

Kenny Thornton | 19 May, 2017, 16:55

The trust is behind community hospitals including Sevenoaks Hospital and Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital in Herne Bay while also running a number of minor injuries units including the one at Gravesham Community Hospital. The bug prevented staff from accessing computer systems and warned that files would be deleted unless money was paid.

The attack on Friday saw ambulances diverted and operations cancelled up and down the country. Some staff had been forced to revert to pen and paper and use their own mobiles after the attack affected key systems, including telephones.

Barts Health, which runs the hospital, was among a fifth of the country's NHS trusts to have its computers infected by ransomware. "Patients should continue to attend and contact their GP Practice in the usual way".

Much of the media attention had focused on the impact of the cyberattack on larger hospitals, said Mr Biggs.

"In addition to protective real-time monitoring of national NHS IT services and systems, which were unaffected by this issue, we are supporting NHS organisations by undertaking cyber security testing and providing bespoke advice and action points".

Hahn, Barnes share Byron Nelson lead with stars lurking
Yet at the end of the opening round, two players who have combined for just one top-10 finish this season are tied for the lead. Barnes, the 2002 US Amateur champion , went on an up-and-down ride, as his scorecard featured eight birdies and two bogeys.

Acute hospitals in Lanarkshire were affected, as were GP surgeries and dental practices.

"Overall, the USA infection rates have been slower than the rest of the world, but we may still see significant impacts in additional networks as these malware attacks morph and change", said Bossert.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the government was monitoring the situation closely.

A spokesman for the Southend and Castle Point Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: "NHS Southend CCG and NHS Castle Point and Rochford CCG have been working together, along with partners across the local health system, to manage the risks to NHS systems caused by Friday's cyber-attack.

What we don't do in our NHS is micromanage it from the desk", he said. He told the Tele: "We have had IT engineers in working tirelessly over the weekend". The press release adds that the police, industrial authorities and the sectors of computer technology, education, banking and cyber-space, as well as some computer security companies, have already taken measures to respond to the attack.
