NHS services hit in global cyber-attack

Theresa May confirms ransomware attack is part of wider international incident as IT systems that underpin patient safety are compromised

The NHS has been hit as part of a global cyber-attack that threw hospitals and businesses in the UK and around the world into chaos.

The unprecedented attack on Friday affected 12 countries and at least 16 NHS trusts in the UK, compromising IT systems that underpin patient safety. Staff across the NHS were locked out of their computers and trusts had to divert emergency patients.

As the prime minister, Theresa May, confirmed that the NHS disruption was part of a wider international event, the attack was declared a major incident by NHS England. In Scotland, the first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, chaired a resilience meeting on the issue.

This is not targeted at the NHS, it’s an international attack, says Theresa May

The same malicious software that hit NHS networks attacked some of the largest companies in Spain and Portugal, including phone company Telefónica, and has also been detected on computers in Russia, Ukraine, Taiwan and eight other countries.


Last December, it emerged that 90% of NHS computers still run on Windows XP, two and a half years after Microsoft stopped supporting the operating system.




Wake up call maybe to junk Windows XP and upgrade to 10. A nice little earner for Microsoft if they buy all the needed licences.

Another example of Tory underfunding to the NHS.

Re: NHS services hit in global cyber-attack

Well they might have to fund some bitcoins now.

Mind you if sysadmins don't have full backups to fully restore anything network related then mass sacking should be order of the day.

And they didn't see this coming? Long overdue, hardly any large company that doesn't have computer issues.

Re: NHS services hit in global cyber-attack

A huge cyber attack leveraging hacking tools widely believed to have been developed by the US National Security Agency brought disruption to Britain's health system on Friday and infected dozens of other countries around the world, security researchers said.

Penny pinching Mr Hunt ?

If this is true then culpability is shared with the criminals

https://lostinmobile.com/2017/05/12/...omware-attack/

Back in April 2014, Microsoft officially ended support for Windows XP, once its most popular operating system (OS) which was favoured my many businesses and government agencies around the world.

The UK government was one such organisation, paying Microsoft the princely sum of £5.5 million to continue providing security support for Windows XP. This deal came to an end in May 2015 and was not renewed, with a the government citing “good progress in moving away from Windows XP across departments and government organisations”.

Of the 70 Trusts contacted, 42 said they were still running Windows XP machines without receiving security updates, with only one of them confirming that it had purchased a support agreement from Microsoft… More at
silicon.

I was in my local hospital yesterday (or should I say Trust) and I was looking at photographs on a wall of all the managers/executives. It seems that the Chief Executive is a 'SIR'. I could only think that this title must have been bestowed upon him for his services to his salary. We definitely live in a parallel country.

Re: NHS services hit in global cyber-attack

Under funding? FFS this has hit 99 countries & counting. Fact is just about everyone is susceptible to hackers, individuals, companies, governments & countries.
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.
