After the recent attacks on the servers of Luxembourg state and then Cedexis infrastructure triggering the main French press sites offline for one hour, it is now the English hospitals to undergo a large-scale computer attack.
This attack is of the “ransomware” type, messages appear on the screens of the computers indicating that the “computers are now in the hands of the pirates and that to unlock the situation one has to pay”.
Some hospitals are forced to divert emergencies to other hospitals, or postpone interventions.
The British social security system (NHS) is also experiencing a computer bug.
