Community health service operating normally after concerns over NHS cyber attack

A Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust spokesman said: "None of our services have been impacted by the recent cyber attack". This prevented access to records and caused chaos throughout the NHS.

The recent global cyber attack has affected more than 200,000 people - so should you be anxious about your own online security?

When the computer virus struck on Friday 47 trusts were affected and seven had to close their doors in A&E to ambulances.

The biggest thing is that experts say download all security updates whenever they pop up on your computer.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd is to chair a meeting of the Government's emergency Cobra committee at the Cabinet Office on Whitehall on Monday to assess progress on dealing with the attack.

The attack involved a malware called Wanna Decryptor, which encrypts files on a user's computer, blocking them from view and demanding a payment to release them.

Doctors surgeries in Tayside affected by the UK-wide NHS cyber-attack are now "operating as normal".

Labour has accused the Government of a "chaotic" response to the cyberattack, and claimed cuts had left hospitals "wide open" to being compromised.

SHANGHAI-"Hundreds of thousands" of Chinese computers at almost 30,000 institutions including government agencies have been hit by the global ransomware attack, a leading Chinese security-software provider has said, though the Asian impact has otherwise been relatively muted.

Problems with cyber security in NHS organisations were highlighted past year by Dame Fiona Caldicott, the national data guardian, who warned that issues were given insufficient priority and that health bodies persisted in using obsolete computer systems, The Times said.

Asked if warnings had been ignored, Mrs May said: "No. It was clear warnings were given to hospital trusts but this is not something that focused on attacking the NHS here in the United Kingdom".

Another method, which preys on machines using outdated software, is visiting a malicious site.

Dozens of state-run NHS hospitals were hit by a global cyber attack last Friday, many closing their doors to emergency cases and cancelling life-saving operations and routine appointments.
