NHS Board Infected by Malware, Hospital Systems Taken Offline
28 August 2017, 8:42 am

The UK National Health Service (NHS) has once again been the victim of cybercriminals, as the systems operated by one board ended up infected with malware on Friday.

The Lanarkshire board revealed on Friday that computers operating the staff rostering and the phone systems at several hospitals, namely Hairmyres Hospital, Monklands Hospital, and Wishaw General Hospital in Scotland, suffered a new malware attack.

The board called for patients to visit the emergency departments only if absolutely necessary, promising to reschedule appointments once systems were clean and back up and running.

“Due to NHS Lanarkshire IT issues, the staff bank system and telephone are offline and currently unavailable. EOL is still available, therefore please check this for available shifts over next 72 hours as a priority. Any cancellations should contact the main hospital switchboard as per usual process,” a statement issued on Softpedia News / Security
