The NHS Cyber Attack: Breaking and Developing News

We Interrupt Journaling Thoughts’ coverage of the 2017 UK Election to bring you developing information on the NHS cyber attack

The NHS has come under a very extreme and dangerous cyber attack today, A form of Ransomware called Wanna Decryptor. The attack was first reported at around 12:30 today with the NHS computer system displaying the message seen below.

As we can see the ransom wants the NHS to pay $300 in bitcoin to unlock the computer. this would be $300 in bitcoin for every computer and I cannot total that up.

This is quite possibly the biggest attack recorded in modern history, never has an attack like this ever happened towards the NHS. If this does come to the worst millions of personal files will end off in dangerous territories


Once the full information comes through we’ll bring you right up to speed. For Journaling Thoughts I’m Jordan Dodds
