No data lost in cyber attack on Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital

The ransomware has wormed its way into thousands of computers in an apparent extortion plot, shutting users out unless they cough up payment.

"Although we have never seen anything on this scale when it comes to ransomware attacks, they are relatively common and there are things that you can do, that everyone can do, all of us can do, to protect ourselves against them", he said.

"In addition to protective real-time monitoring of national NHS IT services and systems, which were unaffected by this issue, we are supporting NHS organisations by undertaking cyber security testing and providing bespoke advice and action points".

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt has confirmed there has not been a second wave of cyber attacks on NHS trusts since the attacks on Friday.

Russian Federation and Britain were among the worst-hit countries by the attack. Matthieu Suiche, a security researcher, was able to find two new variants of WannaCry.

In a White House press briefing today, Bossert said less than $70,000 has been paid in response to the cyberattacks.

Russian Central Bank: State media agency Tass reported the bank discovered malware bulk emails to banks but detected no compromise of resources.

She added: "The IT systems of a small number of GP practices across Tayside, which operate independently of NHS Tayside's systems, were affected, and our eHealth team are working with these practices to resolve this issue". The company said the virus has been localized and "technical work is underway to destroy it and update the antivirus protection". Such ransomware attacks are commonplace, with an estimated 600 million attacks likely recorded in 2016 alone. He said the situation was under control.

National Health Service: At least sixteen NHS organizations have been hit, according to NHS Digital.

British technology experts worked through the night to patch the computer systems of the health service after the ransomware worm forced dozens of hospitals to cancel some operations and appointments, Security Minister Ben Wallace said on Monday.

The NHS says it employs more than 1.5 million people, making it one of the world's biggest employers alongside the U.S. Department of Defence, Walmart and the Chinese army.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd will chair a meeting of the Government's emergency COBRA committee later.
