Urgent security advisory – Ransomware hits the NHS and threatens us all right now

Right now, the NHS is suffering a massive Cyber Attack which is taking systems down around the country. As well as being a personal concern for many, this comes after what seems like a massive increase of these threats this past week. The NHS attack looks to be a ransom ware infection at this time

Could I please ask you to make all your teams aware of this current increased threat level. Having worked within the NHS for many years I can tell you they do take their security very seriously indeed, and this will likely prove to be the result of emails opened containing infected attachments or links. User awareness is very important at all times, but especially so right now.
