"WannaCry" Ransomware Attack Causes Disruption Globally - with the worst yet to come

Montez Delgado | 19 May, 2017, 21:41

A spokesperson said: "Our IT teams were in over the weekend making sure our systems were robust enough to protect against a possible infection, and our firewall was up to date to prevent such a problem".

The British government said 48 of 248 health service trusts - the bodies that run the hospitals - in England had been impacted by Friday's attack.

There are fears of further "ransomware" attacks as people return to work on Monday.

At least one Australian business has fallen victim to the ransomware attack and there are investigations into two other reports, the federal government says.

Cyber-Security Experts Fear the Progression Of 'WannaCry' Ransomware
The reason appears to be related to the fact that the original exploit was based on machines that came out before Windows 10. They are also looking to wipe out any possible malware infections in their system.

Nationally operations and appointments were cancelled and ambulances diverted as up to 40 hospital trusts became infected by the software, with attackers demanding payment to regain access to vital medical records.

There is still no evidence any of our hospital systems were affected and we are completely confident no patient data was involved.

The attackers hijack organizations' files and demand ransom money, in the form of Bitcoin, to release the files.

The move followed the ransomware attack on NHS computer systems.

Macron Names Prime Minister
But Macron could also be anticipating a Republican wave, and hoping Philippe might still be a palatable choice as prime minister. Juppe welcomed the move, wishing him good luck and telling reporters Philippe has "all the qualities needed for this hard job".

The news came after staff at Europe's biggest hospital were warned on Monday not to switch on their computers as the NHS battled to recover from the crisis. The attack is taking advantage of a vulnerability in computers running Microsoft Windows.

"The National Cyber Security Centre and the NCA (National Crime Agency) are working with Europol and other global partners", said Rudd.

The latest virus attack last week exploits a flaw in a version of Microsoft Windows first identified by United States intelligence.

Problems with cyber security in NHS organisations were highlighted a year ago by Dame Fiona Caldicott, the national data guardian, who warned that issues were given insufficient priority and that health bodies persisted in using obsolete computer systems, The Times said.
