The company I work for has merged with another, so some how the request for my replacement car has not been authorized. The lease runs out at the end of June. I doubt my new car will be ready :P

Doesn't look like it's specifically targeted the nhs to me, looks more like some ransom-ware has got past a few companies malware detection software, be interesting to know if they all use the same one.

Yeah I'm not sure. I do intranet stuff though so it's not really my area but I wouldn't be surprised if it's something like that.

This'll be when we find out how good their backup procedures are.
Ransomware really makes me nervous.

It'll be The Russians working on behalf of their best buddy Trump, who wants to undermine the idea of affordable universal health care.

Seems to be affecting desktops for the most part so there really shouldn't be any loss of data. But it's massively disruptive.

The infection may have started on desktops, but if they have access to file shares it will encrypt the contents. Some sites are saying that there have been phone system outages, so it's definitely spread wider than just client machines, and it's entirely possible for backups to be corrupted as well.

In our case back office were shutting down everything as soon as it became apparent what was going on. So it doesn't necessarily follow that every system that is reported as being offline is actually infected.

How often are backups of critical data taken?

I don't know, but as far as I know the servers aren't affected. It seems to be some unpatched desktops.

So ransomware usually affects anything the user has access rights to - so shared drives etc. I'd be surprised (but impressed) if the NHS was better than the majority of orgs where users have write privileges over a lot more stuff than they should.

I'll hopefully find out more today but the last I heard they hadn't seen any of that. Whether the actual encryption occurs fairly slowly (I know it takes a good while to encrypt a laptop when you actually want to do it) and begins on the local drives before encrypting network shares I don't know but there wasn't a lot of time between when the first instances were seen and all the windows servers being shut down. But I suppose given that they shut the servers down they still might not even know exactly what happened.

I've had a weird time lately with lots of work related stress and also quite a bit of health trouble. When I'm not doing well I go (even more) quiet

But now a lot is resolved:
I have left Capgemini after 18 years, they didn't care, not a single word or handshake on the way out. Still I am vary glad that's done.
I have gained a permanent position at my favourite client so yay!
I'm taking a fuckload of meds, but my lungs are finally behaving better
also some other stuff
so hi again!

I can relate to a lot of that. Glad you're on the up again. :)
