WannaCry ransomware might attack 1,3 million computer systems

Irune Rengel | 15 May, 2017, 21:43

It says that the governments of the world should treat the WannaCry attack as "a wake-up call", to consider the "damage to civilians that comes from hoarding these vulnerabilities and the use of these exploits," and to adopt the "Digital Geneva Convention" the company first suggested in February.

It is not known how the attack has affected GP surgeries, which are due to open as usual on Monday.

Officials at the Ministry of Defence played down fears that its four Trident-missile carrying submarines, which use the same software which left the NHS exposed, were vulnerable to attack. "The latest count is over 200,000 victims in 150 countries and many of those will be businesses, including large corporations", said Rob Wainwright, the head of European Union police agency Europol.

In its latest update, the NCSC warned that although there has not been new attacks, there still could be machines and networks that have already been compromised but have yet to be detected.

French carmaker Renault was forced to stop production at sites in France, Slovenia and Romania, while FedEx said it was "implementing remediation steps as quickly as possible".

Eliud Kipchoge runs the fastest Marathon in history
It wasn't a road race, with runners completing 17.5 laps around the 1.5-mile Monza Formula One track. The attempt wouldn't have been an official world record, even though the course is IAAF certified.

Wainwright described the cyberattack as an "escalating threat".

As NHS organisations start a new work week, it appears the attack is far from over, with the previously unaffected Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust added to the list of victims.

The latest malware, called WannaCrypt or WannaCry, is spread by taking advantage of a Windows vulnerability that Microsoft released a security patch for in March.

Capitalising on spying tools believed to have been developed by the U.S. National Security Agency, the virus dubbed WannaCry has blocked more than 200,000 computers across the globe, demanding a ransom to unlock them.

Security experts advised victims not to cough up the ransom, and Mr Op Gen Oorth said that, so far, relatively few had.

Featured Stock to See: Apple Inc. (AAPL)
The iPhone maker reported $2.10 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $2.02 by $0.08. The institutional investor owned 294,624 shares of the iPhone maker's stock after selling 21,524 shares during the period.

U.S. package delivery giant FedEx, European vehicle factories, Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica, Britain's health service and Germany's Deutsche Bahn rail network were among those hit. "We will continue to work with affected (organizations) to confirm this", the agency said.

The Europol chief said his agency was working with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation to find those responsible, and that more than one person was likely to be involved.

Nevertheless, MalwareTech's purported accidental rescue of more than 100,000 computers in 104 countries was confirmed by the British government's National Cyber Security Centre.

"Of course there are amounts that are being demanded, in this case relatively small amounts - US$300 rising to US$600 if you don't pay within three days", he said.
