When Real Life Mirrors Art – NHS and Chicago Med

Previously on Chicago Med ….

A hacker demanding a ransom payment shuts down the hospital computer system, forcing the doctors to diagnose patients without the aid of technology.

Presently in Real Life ….

A major incident has been declared after NHS services across England and Scotland were hit by a large-scale cyber-attack.

Screenshots shared online purportedly from NHS staff, show a program demanding £230 ($300) in Bitcoin that looks similar to ransomware known as WannaCryptor or WCry.

There’s no indication of who is behind the attack yet, nor do we know exactly how it infected NHS systems.
