Hospital computers across Britain shut down by cyberattack, hackers demanding ransom


Hospitals across Britain have been hit by a large-scale cyberattack. Some are having to divert emergency patients, with doctors reporting messages demanding money. 
National Health Service (NHS) hospitals across the country were hit by a bug spreading through their IT systems. Doctors have been posting on Twitter about what has been happening.
Here's what a London GP sees when trying to connect to the NHS network
NHS Digital which has responsibility for IT systems says the attack is not believed to have been a targeted one.   It has named the malware 'Wanna Decryptor' as the likely cause of the problem, but insists there is no evidence that patient data has been accessed.

A screengrab of an instant message conversation circulated by one doctor says: “So our hospital is down … We got a message saying your computers are now under their control and pay a certain amount of money. And now everything is gone.”
A second doctor tweeted: “Massive NHS hack cyber attack today. Hospital in shut down. Thanks for delaying emergency patient care & endangering lives. Assholes.”
East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, one of those affected, said in a statement: “Today, the trust has experienced a major IT problem, believed to be caused by a cyber attack.
Why would you cyber attack a hospital and hold it for ransom? The state of the world 😂
“Immediately on discovery of the problem, the trust acted to protect its IT systems by shutting them down; it also meant that the trust’s telephone system is not able to accept incoming calls.
“The trust is postponing all non-urgent activity for today and is asking people not to come to A&E.”
Someone as hacked into the computer network at Royal Blackburn Hospital!! Can't give out prescriptions to anyone!!!!

Blackpool Hospitals, also affected, tweeted: “Our computer systems are experiencing problems and we are working hard on a solution. We will update you as soon as possible.” 
Sky News reported that sources inside the department of health had described the attack as "unexpected, but not unprecedented."  
NW hospital computer systems under cyber attack 4 ransom... Sitting in front of a blank screen & can't do any work. Criminal Poor patients😠
According to reports, affected hospitals include those run by East and North Hertfordshire NHS trust, Barts Health in London, Essex Partnership university NHS trusts, the university hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS foundation trust, Southport and Ormskirk hospital NHS trust and Blackpool teaching hospital NHS foundation trust.
Services affected are thought to include picture archiving communication systems for x-ray images, pathology test results, phone and bleep systems and patient administration systems, the Telegraph reports.
We apologise but we are having issues with our computer systems. Please don't attend A&E unless it's an emergency. Thanks for your patience
“At approximately 12:30pm we experienced a problem with our email servers crashing. Following this a lot of our clinical systems and patient systems were reported to have gone down,” an NHS IT worker said in a message to a Guardian reporter.
“A bitcoin pop-up message had been introduced onto the network asking users to pay $300 to be able to access their PCs. You cannot get past this screen.
“This followed with an internal major incident being declared and advised all staff to shut down all PCs in the trust and await further instructions.”
There are reports of messages on computers saying: “Oops. Your files have been encrypted,” and demands for bitcoin to be paid.
