Hospitals, major companies and government offices were hit by a virus that seeks to seize control of computers until the victims pay a ransom.

There are fears of more "ransomware" attacks as people begin work on Monday, although few have been reported so far.

In a statement Saturday, Europol's European Cybercrime Centre, known as EC3, said the attack "is at an unprecedented level and will require a complex worldwide investigation to identify the culprits".

Computer users should patch their machines with updates from Microsoft, especially those using older versions of operating systems such as Windows XP.

Friday's ransomware attack appears to have spread mainly in Europe and Asia, with Russian Federation among those nations hardest hit, according to security researchers.

Sixteen National Health Service (NHS) organizations in the United Kingdom have been hit, and some of those hospitals have canceled outpatient appointments and told people to avoid emergency departments if possible.

Theresa May said the Government is not aware of any evidence patient records had been compromised.

The newly-inaugurated president has given the role to Edouard Philippe, who's now an MP with the Republican party. Macron himself was an independent for seven years before setting up his own party, 'En Marche!', last summer.

Security officials in Britain urged organizations to protect themselves from ransomware by updating their security software fixes, running anti-virus software and backing up data elsewhere.

"Global internet security has reached a moment of emergency", Qihoo360 warned.

What's worse is the fact that it has managed to bring multiple services - Britain's health system, Spanish telecom firm Telefonica, etc. - to their knees. Accessing the same would've activated the worm-spreading functionality with the EternalBlue vulnerability, which is being exploited by Wanna Crypt ransomware.

It's on track to be one of the biggest recorded ransomware attacks ever, with tens of thousands of infected computers in almost 100 countries.

Robinson said he calculated the total based on payments tracked to bitcoin addresses specified in the ransom demands.

Russia's central bank on Saturday said that the country's banking system had been hit by a mass cyberattack, and a number of ministries and the railway system also reported attempted breaches. Spokesman Petr Lidov told CNN that it affected call centers but not the company's networks.

Also, the traditional manufacturing sector relies on outdated IT systems that are run by unsupported operating systems and therefore, the risk of creating havoc to public is higher, he said.

The new version of Wana Decrypt0r has reportedly infected tens of thousands of computers within hours. A techie at Telefónica confirmed that the initial infection vector was a phishing email. Although it won't do any good for machines that have already been hit.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, at a meeting of world leaders in Italy, said the attack was a reminder of the importance of cybersecurity.

Reports suggest that over two lakh systems globally could have been infected by the malicious software. It can infect other computers on the same wireless network.

The Andhra Pradesh systems were isolated PCs and not connected to larger networks, he said. "From there, to other companies".

This is one reason we called in February for a new "Digital Geneva Convention" to govern these issues, including a new requirement for governments to report vulnerabilities to vendors, rather than stockpile, sell, or exploit them.

Consumers who have up-to-date software are protected from this ransomware.
