NHS cyber attack: Sheffield professor's advice on how to protect yourself

"Scottish Government health officials are now working closely with affected boards to assess the extent of the problem, and take steps to isolate affected systems, which have been affected by a Ransomware cyber-attack of the kind which has also affected health trusts in NHS England".

The spread of the program across National Health Service (NHS) computers forced doctors to switch to pen and paper and continued to affect care days after it initially hit.

"The walk-in x-ray service at Basingstoke hospital will remain closed for patients referred by their GP for the rest of the day".

Dozens of Russian public institutions including the Bank of Russia said on Saturday that they have thwarted a massive cyber-attack and prevented vital data loss.

The cyber attack had a limited impact on some of the x-ray facilities at the hospital, which were temporarily reduced while the machines were repaired.

Immediate action was taken by the trust and services continued to operate over the weekend.

'There have also been other reports made to our online cyber security network and the difficulty is of course there are literally hundres of instances of ransomware in Australia each week and so we are now seeking to confirm whether these are examples of the particular ransomware that has cause so much havoc for example in the United Kingdom'. Patients can attend Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Andover War Memorial Hospital or Alton Community Hospital as an alternative.

The NHS was one of several organisations targeted, resulting in patients being turned away from A&E and operations being cancelled.

IN the wake of Friday's global cyber attack, a warning was issued to South Africans returning to work on Monday.

"We've never seen anything like this", the head of the European Union's policing agency told Britain's ITV television Sunday.

"WannaCry" infected computers are frozen and display a big message in red informing users, "Oops, your files have been encrypted!" and demanding about $300 in online bitcoin payment.

"We have also been offering advice and assistance to GP surgeries, who will open as usual tomorrow".

But Opposition parties have criticised the government, saying they had cut funding to the NHS IT budget and a contract to protect computer systems was not renewed after 2015.
