The attack on Friday saw ambulances diverted and operations cancelled up and down the country.

The ransomware program demanded a payment worth £230 to unlock the affected computers.

With 200,000 victims across 150 countries, including the NHS from Friday's ransomware attack, the sheer speed and scale at which a cyber attack can manifest is phenomenal.

Patients are being urged to stay away from GPs amid fears of a "Monday morning meltdown" as a result of the global cyber attacks, The Telegraph reports.

UK's state-run National Health Service (NHS) was limping back to normalcy today, even as experts have warned of a second wave of ransomware cyberattacks on IT systems around the world.

Shadow Brokers boasts of more Windows exploits and cyberespionage data
The Shadow Brokers are threatening to make public more of the exploits and tools that they have access to, thanks to the NSA hack. That leak led indirectly to the creation of WannaCry and the subsequent crisis, security experts say.

On Sunday night, Microsoft blamed the United States spy agency that had originally developed software that allowed the ransomware attack to infect computers.

The National Cyber Security Centre has been coordinating the State's response to the threat from the fast-spreading malicious software and has issued a series of advisory notices to Government departments and agencies.

It is understood the number of systems affected at each of the Scottish health boards fell into single figures - bar NHS Lanarkshire where more machines were affected.

The Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading has been running a normal service and said that anyone with appointments should continue to attend as expected.

However, some planned surgery and some outpatient appointments will be continuing at all of our hospitals.

U.S. laptop ban "likely" to be expanded to flights from Europe
Kelly was scheduled to meet President Donald Trump on Friday but a DHS official said the meeting is about a different topic. Britain followed with a similar ban applying to incoming flights from six Middle East and North African countries .

"Most people are not paying this, so there are not a lot of money being made with this by criminal organisations so far", he said.

However, the note said that no GP practice computers had actually been infected by the malware.

He also said the NHS may have "got away with it" to some extent, as its "obsolete" computer systems could easily have been subjected to a targeted attack seeking to extract patients' personal data.

There was no loss of data or any impact on other services, the hospital confirmed. "We are implementing remediation steps as quickly as possible".

Warriors romp to 2-0 lead
The Spurs need Aldridge to be a max contract guy tonight and he didn't seem like he was a worth a penny of that contract. Thomas scored 17 points in the game one loss but the leading scorer for the Celtics was Jae Crowder with 21 points.
