Tayside GP practices affected by NHS cyber-attack running as normal

NY [U.S.], May 14 (ANI): The World's biggest cyber attack which has hit 200,000 victims in at least 150 countries threatens to create more havoc on Monday when people return to work. WannaCry affects systems that are behind in their Windows patching.

Brad Smith, Microsoft's president and chief legal officer, said in a blog post Sunday that the culprits used a code developed by the US National Security Agency.

"The use of cyberattacks for criminal purposes is an increasing threat which requires a coordinated and global response from the EU and its member states", Margaritis Schinas, a spokesman for the European Commission, said on Monday.

Around 150 countries were affected. Questions have been raised over Trident's vulnerability to potential cyber attacks, as the system is believed to use ageing Window's XP software - the same operating system targeted by the global ransomware attack.

"This ransomware attack is a wake-up call to all Australian businesses to regularly back up their data and install the latest security patches", Mr Tehan said. Have you paid the ransom?

Lancashire-based Dr Wrigley said: "Fitting the cancelled operations in is definitely going to cause problems".

Besides, the Maharashtra Police department said it was partially hit by the ransomware.

"We have also been offering advice and assistance to GP surgeries, who will open as usual tomorrow". The central bank reportedly said those monitoring the cyberattacks found "no incidents compromising data resources of banking institutions".

In a snap election campaign which May has dominated so far, the debate over the cyber attack on the NHS forced her onto the defensive, although it was not immediately clear what impact, if any, it would have on her popularity.

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was warned previous year about NHS' vulnerability to attack.

Megafon: A spokesperson for Russian telecommunications company Megafon told CNN that the cyberattack affected call centers but not the company's networks.

Scores of organisations inside the NHS, which provides free medical care for all and is a source of pride for Britons, were hit by the ransomware on Friday.

"It was clear warnings were given to hospital trusts but this is not something that focused on attacking the NHS here in the United Kingdom".

"We have recently invested in upgrading IT to protect potentially vulnerable NHS Wales systems and all GP systems in Wales are managed and supported centrally, with best practice security controls".

Following a meeting of the Government's Cobra contingencies committee, Home Secretary Amber Rudd said more than a million patients had been treated in the course of Monday.

"The most important message we want to get out there is that we haven't seen a wholesale impact like we've seen in Europe and other parts of the world".
