UK Hospitals Hit by Massive Cyber Attack

From the Guardian:

Hospitals across England have been hit by a large-scale cyber-attack, the NHS has confirmed, which has locked staff out of their computers and forced many trusts to divert emergency patients.

The IT systems of NHS sites across the country appear to have been simultaneously hit, with a pop-up message demanding a ransom in exchange for access to the PCs. NHS England has declared a major incident. NHS Digital said it was aware of the problem and would release more details soon.


Several companies in Spain were also hit with recent ransomware attacks.

I hope that the criminals are caught and prosecuted! This can NOT become part of our daily lives.
