Ransomware hits 'hundreds of thousands' of China PCs

19 Mai 2017

"Ransonware that has been dubbed 'WannaCry" security is one of the worst and wide spread malware they ever even. Ransomware cyber attacks cause hospitals of U.K.to cancel their patient's appointment.

Major companies that includes sixteen National Health Service organsisations in the U.K. FedEx, telecom companies Telefonica of Spain and Megafon of Russian Federation were also hit.

Rob Wainwright, director of Europol, claimed the organisation "had never seen anything like this" after the global ransomware attack, last Friday, crippled the NHS.

A total 12 out of 14 health boards in Scotland experienced only minor disruptions following Friday's global ransomware attack, with two escaping the attack completely.

This is because the virus has especially affected older Microsoft systems by taking advantage of a weakness found in documents leaked from the US National Security Agency.

"It was clear that warnings were given to hospital trusts but this is not something that focused on attacking the NHS here in the United Kingdom", she told reporters on Monday.

Some planned surgery and outpatient appointments will continue at all of the trust's hospitals, including all renal dialysis services.

The trust, which runs Boston, Lincoln and Grantham hospitals, says to attend "unless patients recieve a telephone call" saying otherwise as some systems are still affected. "All services are operating as normal".

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

Justice secretary Michael Matheson said: "Friday's attack has highlighted the need for everyone to have appropriate and robust measures in place to protect against cyber-attacks which could strike any IT system at any time".

A spokesperson told Pulse: 'Those NHS organisations in the region who were not directly affected by the virus also closed their external servers as a precautionary step to ensure the virus could not spread'.

A spokesman for NHS Digital, which manages health service cyber security, said: "At this stage, we do not have any evidence that patient data has been accessed".
