The Worldwide `Ransomware” Cyberattack Is Wreaking Havoc

The worldwide “ransomware” cyberattack is wreaking havoc in hospitals, schools and offices across the globe.

Asia reported thousands of new cases today, but no large-scale breakdowns as workers unaffected by Friday’s attack started the new work week by booting up their computers.
The full extent of the damage from the attack felt in 150 countries is unclear and could worsen if more malicious variations
of the extortion scheme appear.
Britain’s health service says most hospitals hit by the worm on Friday are back up and running, but seven are still experiencing I-T disruption and have had to cancel some appointments.
For the most part, Canadian companies and government services were unaffected by Friday’s attack.
