'Major disruption' as UK hospitals hit by cyber attack

Hospitals and doctors' surgeries across Britain have been forced to turn away patients and cancel appointments after a nationwide cyber attack which crippled some computer systems in the country's health service.


The National Health Service (NHS) said on Friday 16 organisations had been affected by the "ransomware" attack.

It said in a statement that the NHS had not been specifically targeted, adding that the attack was affecting organisations from across a range of sectors.

"The investigation is at an early stage but we believe the malware variant is Wanna Decryptor," NHS said.

"At this stage we do not have any evidence that patient data has been accessed."

Britain's National Cyber Security Centre, part of the GCHQ spy agency, said it was aware of a cyber incident and was working with NHS and the police to investigate.
