Ransomware cyber attack 'likely to spread rapidly on Monday'


Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital has been hit by the nationwide cyber attack on the NHS.

Such programs stop users from accessing their files until they make a payment in Bitcoin.

Large swathes of the NHS have been paralysed by the cyber attack, which hit 200,000 victims in 150 countries around the world.

The British government defended its cyber-security policies on Monday in the aftermath of an unprecedented malware attack.

But speaking publicly for the first time since the cyberattack, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said that "according to the latest intelligence we have not seen a second wave of attacks".

"If you have a hospital appointment you should still attend unless you are contacted and told not to".

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.

Spanish telco giant Telefonica and United States delivery service FedEx were among the businesses affected.

A spokesperson told Pulse: 'Those NHS organisations in the region who were not directly affected by the virus also closed their external servers as a precautionary step to ensure the virus could not spread'.
