Just where have I said that or even indicated that attitude?

Hackers are dedicated in what they do, its not a hobby, a mess about, a bit of fun, its a profession to many who do it & they do it for money which is paid by results.
I know because a few years back I was offered the "service" against a company who was screwing with my business.
The problem the cyber world has, the hackers are one step ahead of everyone........its catch up. As said I'm no geek but I wonder what's already been sown in the way of viruses that will pop up on a certain prearranged dates?

I've met a couple of "hackers", a husband & wife team. To them hacking is like a crossword is to us mortals, its the challenge. Lets face it, NASA, CIA, FBI, banks etc have all been hacked in the past, our NHS probably comes well down the list when it comes to world security.
I'm no geek but hacking is with us & its here to stay.

Yeah Spurs, but everything running on Windows XP ? There has been plenty of publicity about two years ago that the security on this operating system was no longer being supported.

It is a whataboutism Spurs , you say it has hit 99 countries , how many have a publicly funded NHS , with a minister responsible for telling the service not to spend money on XP updates ?

Our health service is our most important asset , and this idiot wants to strip it and sell it to his cronies.

The NHS is paid for by us and deserves the highest level of competence and security , not the invisible Jeremy Hunt and his indifferent incompetence.

Re: NHS services hit in global cyber-attack

‘GPs will this week demand that NHS patients must pay for routine appointments, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Leading family doctors from across Britain will insist that charging patients for consultations is the only way to end the crisis in general practice – recently described by the British Medical Association as being ‘at breaking point’.

Desperate patients now routinely have to wait three weeks to see their doctor, while surgeries are struggling to recruit as GPs leave in droves.

The radical move, which would end the principle of an NHS free at the point of delivery, will be discussed at a major BMA conference in Edinburgh on Thursday.

Re: NHS services hit in global cyber-attack

It may be free at the point of delivery , but we all prepay with our NI and taxes.

Perhaps if we had our money back we could weaponise it to bring the GP service into line.

Regardless , it is our money and GP's are well paid.
