Hi,

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-41753022

"WannaCry was the biggest cyber-attack that has affected the NHS to date

NHS trusts were left vulnerable in a major ransomware attack in May because cyber-security recommendations were not followed, a government report has said.

More than a third of trusts in England were disrupted by the WannaCry ransomware, according to the National Audit Office (NAO).

At least 6,900 NHS appointments were cancelled as a result of the attack.

NHS England said no patient data had been compromised or stolen and praised the staff response.

The NAO chief said the Department of Health and the NHS must now "get their act together"."

Penny Pinching no doubt, just winging it and hoping that they wouldn't get hit.


Regards, Mick. D

They now say that it was North Korea that was responsible.
