UK hospitals, Spanish businesses hit by cyber attack

Britain’s National Health Service says 16 regional health authorities have been hit by a massive cyberattack from persons unknown demanding money.

The “ransomware” attack also affected computer systems in some doctors’ surgeries, which had to turn patients away and cancel appointments as software crashed.

However it appears the attack was a general one and did not target health services in particular.
